    The only polls I can go by more people who are interested in the ID than USCX Racing. Just go look at their FaceBook pages.
  2. Under President Trump’s leadership, Congress passed historic tax cuts and relief for hard-working Americans. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act: Is the first major tax reform signed in 30 years. Federal revenues are increasing as the economy grows. April 2018 had a record surplus of $214 billion. Over 500 companies (507) have announced bonuses, wage increases, and new investments. Businesses have invested $482 billion in new, American projects and employees. More than 4.8 million workers received increased wages or bonuses (3.7% of all private workers). Provided $1.5 trillion in tax cuts to individuals. American families received $3.2 trillion in gross tax cuts and saw the child tax credit double. A family of four making $73,000 will get a cut of over $2,000-cutting their taxes in half. Nearly doubled the standard deduction. Repealed Obamacare’s burdensome individual mandate. The bill provides a 20% deduction for small business income, which means $415 billion tax cut. The President lowered the corporate tax rate was lowered from the highest in the industrialized world (35%) to 21%. President Trump is unleashing economic growth and jobs. During his first year, nearly 3 million new jobs were created since January 2017 and the unemployment rate fell to 3.8 percent, the first time below 4% in 18 years. The manufacturing industry created over 300,000 jobs. 337,000 construction jobs have been created since President Trump took office, and construction employment stands at its highest level since June 2008. Fourteen states reached record low unemployment rates. The African American unemployment rate reached its lowest ever recorded. Job openings have reached 6.6 million, the highest level recorded. This competition should drive wage growth. Jobless claims reached the lowest level in 45 years (1973). The number of people dependent on food stamps has fallen by 2.6 million or 6.2% since January 2017. The number of people receiving unemployment benefits is running at the lowest level in 45 years. Average 3% growth the last three quarters- under President Obama, annual growth averaged 1.9%.
  3. Here ya go >>>>
  4. LMAO the only thing that will need coating is the new Cat seat now available in the 2020 accessory Cat catalog. Stupid fuckers think any 800 stock EPA compliant motor will makeover 160 hp needs to lay off the drugs. Mathematically the numbers do not match on the 800 they do on the 850.

    RIP American Snowmobiler

    Our trail passes in Wisconsin are up from previous years so people are still riding sleds but they are not buying new sleds like the old days. In 10 years an ATV will be run right in the ground for the most part and sleds you can still find good sleds out running around from the 80's and 90's and 2000's.
  6. you have to learn Textron is not the great Arctic Cat we all knew over the years they are the AMF of Harly Davidson of the '70s. You have nothing to be loyal about here friends.
  7. When running the math on the 800 its an odd duck but the numbers match when it comes to the 850. Polaris and Ski-Doo engineers knew this.
  8. From a Ski-Doo owner. I hope Jim is off on his numbers and the dam 800 ctec makes 180 hp for all I care and wipes all the other sleds off the lakes. I really don't like seeing guys being taken.
  9. Take a look at the date on that picture. That was my screenshot funny to watch it shot all over the internet.
  10. So you turn a blind eye to Textron's bull shit and let the consumer take it up the ass.
  11. Depends on if your a Republican or a democrat. Yes
  12. The sled to beat this year will be the XC 850 137" as an all-round sled and I just bought and 850 Doo new 2019. I tell it like it is like it or not.
  13. BMP saw the same number 155 hp as did DT.
  14. BMP Saw the same numbers as DT did. It must be a conspiracy at 155.3. Textron dropping dealers not giving dealers any inventory to sell fudging stock numbers slashing Cat upper management and now this? The cat faithful have got their heads up their asses or they are just blind.
  15. The 800 Cat will not compete with the 850's no way no how.
  16. I would not put it past Textron. I hope 155 is the wrong number or just BS there are a lot of people that will be very upset with their snow checks this year. I wish Cat was an employee-owned company and not owned by Textron.
  17. Off-topic this is a message I received from a local boy over in Afghanistan yesterday. Hey Rob! Not sure if you remember me or not but I'm one of Sara's friends << "My daughter" and I'm currently deployed to Afghanistan. Been here for about 4 and a half months now with a few to go and had a light bulb come on the other day. As you can imagine the food here isn't real great and if I recall you work at UW provisions? If not no big deal but if you do is there any way of possibly getting us some steaks over here? We have grills and I am pretty sure I can get access to a smoker. We have a lot of people (all from the 115th fighter wing) in madison that would appreciate it. If this is something you can't do that no worries! Either way thank you for your time and I hope all is well.
