Boo Hoo Hoo..... Racings not fair.....

Maxi, how can you possibly say that nothing new will come from racing. You are forgetting a critical step in develpment, and that is that IDEAS for products and improvements begin on race tracks, BEFORE it even gets to R&D. Example: Cat's cross-link suspension. I've saying all along this post that r...

Boo Hoo Hoo..... Racings not fair.....

Good point, Skunk.

Why did Doo release the REV in the open mod class before making it a production sled.

If it's all developed through R&D and racing is not needed, then why did they do it this way?

Boo Hoo Hoo..... Racings not fair.....

So Bandit, if you think it's just about marketing, then why are they spending so much time and effort for only 10% of the market? Someone else (don't remember who) said that ditch-banger's only make up 10% of the market.

Winning the biggest race.

J, I think your missing the boat. You guys said yoursevles that the ditch banger category is only 10% of the market. I don't know who said it, but I read it here somewhere. So if that is true, why would the companies spend all that time, effort and money on just 10% of the market? Racing is not only...

Boo Hoo Hoo..... Racings not fair.....

Bandit SRX, I understand the marketing thing. Now explain it to these other guys. You Yamaha guys sound like a broken record. "We don't care about who wins races. All you racer wanna-be's bla bla bla" Seems as though you either can't read what we're telling you, or you just don't get it. It's NOT ab...

Winning the biggest race.

So Drift, why won't you answer my question from the other thread? Tell us WHY do the factories bother with racing if it does not improve sled design and does not sell sleds? WHY, Oh mighty one. Please tell us WHY??? BTW, last time I checked, Polaris leads marketshare, so they are "winning the race t...

Freeze, if you know anything about Harley-Davidson, you would know that they have a very rich racing history. They still race to this day. Nobody on here said that you have to win to benefit from racing.

Boo Hoo Hoo..... Racings not fair.....

Drift, if you don'nt think that racing sells sleds, then why do the factories do it? If you don't think racing improves sled designs, then why do the factories do it? You and some others seem to argue all the points FOR racing, so tell me why the factories bother if it's useless. *This Message was e...

Boo Hoo Hoo..... Racings not fair.....

I only got into snowmobiling 2 years ago. When I am interested in something, I read, read, and read some more about the topic. I've found that most of the develpments on today's sleds were made through racing. Of course engineers come up with this stuff and test it elsewhere, but racing is where it'...

Yamaha no longer has racing department

I did not read the article, but IF the rule change that they want is to allow 4 strokes, I would have to agree with them. That's the only way the big tanks are gonna slim down: through racing technology and research. Wacker, I don't know what you've been reading about the clean 2 strokes, but the fu...
