More like the new Cat rearend...the snowflap area is not cluttered enough to be that of a REV.

Looks like the current polaris just with a tall seat and handlebars. I hope theres more that goes along with that.

Which sled was announced or produced first? The RX-1, REV, or Firecat?

Sorry if this is off topic of this discussion, I'm just seeing alot of people compare the sleds to this "new" Polaris model.

Thanks

If you want to get technical the Polaris NXR was a before all of them!! The NXR was a concept sled that photos started to surface this spring about. It was done in '95 and a lot of people said that Polaris was trying to copy the Rev. Well according to the Doo sit ethe Rev started as a concept sled in '97 so Pol beat them to that one and I believe the RX-1 concept (style wise) was around '97 or '98. As far as the Firecat goes I only see a small resemblance; ie.. hood, track, skis, motor, and so on (I think you know what I mean). Otherwise there is not a resemblance at all to the Cat (Thank God!!).
Just because Doo brought the Rev out first doesn't mean they came up with the concept first. I think Polaris has something ready but were planning on keeping it for the 50th anniversary ('04 Models) and got caught with their pants down, figuratively speaking of course.

Here is a picture of the NXR if you are unfamiliar with it. I am not trying to start something but want to make sure the facts are out there before people start judging and saying someone is copying the design of someone else.

Even I would like to see Polaris come out w/something new. It just keeps everything exciting and all brands forced to improve their products when everyone is bringing out new ideas. Come on Polaris, show us something really new.

it's still an old sled. but i do believe like i said earlier that polaris has something in the kitchen because they stole a few good riders from other camps. so they must have shown these riders what they have hidden, think about it every racer no matter what the money wants to ride into the winners circle.




IF WE GIVE ALL THE PROFIT TO THE IMPORTS WHAT WILL BE LEFT?

I have a sneaky feeling that there will be something for this race season but only for the Pro's. Kick but Mod Sled maybe???

Looking back, 'doo you think Blair would have gone to Ski-doo if the Open class sled was just a ZX chassis w/ a big motor? IMO, no. The races knowing what AC & 'doo would be racing this winter, wouldn't want to race on "old" technology. But the Firecat & REV each have a race season under their belts. How much new unproven stuff is on the ProX?
