While not confirmed, it’s generally accepted AC will move its Sno-Pro racing package into a version of the M-Series platform debuted this season with a new belly, hood, bulkhead and 15 inch track and tunnel.
Look for the limited build 440 to bring rider forward ergos even more sharply into focus this year with the M-Series short hood and belly and the forward mounted handlepole used last year on the Firecat based Sno Pro 440 chassis.
With the move back to a 15 x 121 inch track, the new Sno Pro will appear more mainstream and less like a long track racer. Look for rear outside idlers to return to the skid.
We think the current Sno Pro engine and clutching package combined with the traction of a 15 inch track will give the 440 an immediate advantage out of the hole. We look for a beefier drive system – possibly a racing version of ACT planetary drive or at the very least a 17 link hyvo chain and deeper case – to handle the extra hook of the new track.
