    x2, I could easily kill myself on a 600...handing me the keys to something like that would be like assisted suicide

    I bet it is slow. A 200+ horsepower snowmobile weighs in at about 550-600 pounds minus the rider. It is cool and something to see, I'd rock it for a pass or two down the lake, but that is all.

    Oh I wouldn't ride it anywhere but on the lake and even there, it won't get traction. It has no studs. Hit the roads or trails and the ass end will slide right out.

    I miss riding so much, pictures of snow are evil to me at the moment... Next winter's project is a 150+ horse sled.

    Not doubting you Sled but I don't think it'd be slow. Very true that a standard sled would be much lighter but with a second track to put the power down and a blower on that motor (although none of us really have any idea what that motor will do) I think it'd excel in a straight line if you could get it to hook up reliably. Good point on the lake passes though, didn't even notice the lack of studs.

    granted the top speed is there. But 1/4 mile I bet its not anything stellar(even with studs and traction.

    I mean many stock sleds lay down mid 11s easily. I've seen asphalt sleds in the 9s at the track.

    Good point, we have long lakes and I'd be just as dead either way. :D

    As a side note, a friend of mine from school had to ditch at 75 a couple of weeks ago and his face is messed up pretty bad still, I'd hate to see what would have happened had he not been wearing a helmet.
