Yep, more torque, horsepower, and milage. Less oil use and body panels are similar to what is on the thundercat for 2017. Gonna be a sweet ride and the leftover 17 on down are going to have to get some great rebates to move out of the dealers showrooms. I knew Cat would answer the call to the 850 doo.

If your gonna be dumb, you gotta be tough!!!

It looks like the panels and color scheme from my 6000R XC. Love it!

I think some guys are disappointed there isn't a new chassis for this new engine. Doo had complete new sled (engine and chassis) and for some guys, that's what Cat would need to do to answer the call.

Personally I really like the new panels and if the 800 is as reliable and strong as the 600, it should be very competitive with the Doo 850. I don't think Cat needed a new chassis. DooTalk has guys on it who bought Sidewinders this year and absolutely love them and say the rear skid is very close to the R-motion but Cat's front is better than Doo's. (Of course they'd never buy a ThunderCat due to Cat clutches).

Cat's not going to have 2 different chassis; one for the yami 4 strokers and one for Cat 2 strokers (plus a third in the Bearcats). Whatever engines they make are going to have to fit into one overall chassis.

The mountain proclimb did get some reworking as it is called the "Ascender" platform with being 10% narrower (should be between 2-3 inches) with better track approach angle, narrower boards, etc but still on a Proclimb chassis.

It's not about how fast you get there; it's about the fun you have along the way!

An acquaintance smoked a new doo 850 with his Sidewinder 137 w 144 studs in a few races 2 weeks ago. Wasn't even close.

I raced the same sidewinder w my 16 ZR 137 Limited 8000 and a 1.6 ice cobra twice.

I was ahead of him up to 65 or so and then he powered past me. He tops out low 100s.

He said I gave him a much better race than the Doo 850.

I owned him in any turn.

I rode a Renegade and it felt like a truck....by way of comparison, my buddies Polaris was much better.

Cat doesn't need a new chassis.

Doo needed a new chassis to be close to cat.

Way to go Cat w the new engine MADE IN USA!
