For 2006 Arctic Cat is returning to the track with what they hope is the toughest, most durable Sno Pro 440 to date. The 2006 Sno Pro 440 claims to deliver an unmatched power-to-weight ratio in a chassis that will provide better cornering and suspension capabilities. Arctic Cat race engineers have been working non-stop to refine and improve the components that win races.
Key Features include:
*An all-new, three position, adjustable steering post angle allows two forward positions for racer comfort and mobility.
*Suspension components have been upgraded in the front and rear which increase handling capabilities in rough terrain.
*Quicker throttle response, enhanced bottom end, and increased horsepower throughout the engine’s power band.
*Multiple areas of the chassis, engine, and suspension components have been strengthened for race-after-race winning longevity.
*The front and rear arm shocks, have been separated for quicker valving calibration changes, and offer more external adjustability
*Front spindles have been revised with a stronger extrusion for the ultimate in durability.
*Front end steering support down tubes have been added to increase strength and reduce front end chassis flex.
*New Fox Float ski shocks have a larger air chamber and different valving code. Running a higher air pressure results in carrying the sled higher and also allows the shock to stroke deeper into the travel.
*A new center link has been added to the steering system that reduces flexing of the steering (bell crank) tubes. Front ski alignment will be more consistent and steering will be more precise.
*The front upper a-arms have been improved for strength with a new cross brace that minimizes flexing.
*Rear shocks are new. The front arm shock is compression adjustable and has position sensitive valving. End result is a plush initial ride and improved bottoming control. The rear arm shock has compression and rebound adjustability for the ultimate in fine tuning.
*440cc engine with revised intake flanges, V-Force reeds, and a new boost bottle, provide quicker throttle response, enhanced bottom end, and increased horsepower from low to high end.
*New TEAM Industries slip gear reduces the peak shock loads to the drive system, which increase the chain and drive system life.
*The TEAM Industries driven clutch has been lightened for less rotating mass.
*Refined chain tension pad has more initial sur face, which reduces the amount of pad wear.
*A new plate brace has been added to the engine to reduce movement and relieve stress on the engine mounts. It also improves clutch alignment consistency and decreases premature drive belt wear.
*A revised muffler exhaust outlet decreases engine bogging while landing in deep holes or whoop sections
