    Question: Why do you want to purchase a race model? If you are usin it for regular driving, I would consider a larger displacement machine, like a 600. They will have less problems and mmore power.

    I think the Sno Pro is the better sled this year.
    But it Doo uses the technology they have for there Open sled with the 440 man look out.
    Could be some fun watching the boys square off for bragging rights.

    You guess which sled I would pick....hmmmmm got your answer? Good! [img]images/icon_smile_big.gif[/img] I do agree that the race sleds are not the best set up for just agressive trail riding.... one of the big twins or something would be much better. That is, unless you plan on racing.... Also the sno-pro is much harder to buy from a dealer if you are not a racer.

    For one thing, race sleds are not proven and tested like the production sleds. They are modified to the limits by the factory, therefore they have a greater risk of engine failure. You can't modify them much more, I mean, they are 440's already pushing out 100 hp, they have no more in them, unless you turbo charge them and they use new components that haven't had time to be tested properly.

    With a race sled, you are welcoming problems, you have to enjoy messing with all settings, all the time, they are extremely finicky. I speak from experience, I am riding a race sled on the trails now, and constantly messing with clutching, jetting, gearing, you name it.

    I don't mind, because I like doing it, although it gets expensive and sometimes can be a large pain in the ass.

    Like Erick said, a race 440 is putting out close to 100 hp, and that's a lot of power out of not many cc's.

    No, a race sled will not seize up and fail if you ride it daily, but it will cost more money in maintenence and you have to keep it in good running order, if you have it jetted for warm temperatures, and the temp drops way down, and you just want to go ride and not bother changing jets, it is very likely that you will blow it up.

    Those are risks you take with a race sled though, but those 440s when in tune are very very jumpy fun machines, they are really light and soak up bumps and are fun to throw around.

    I recommend if you like messing around, go for a race sled, if you would rather just hop on and drive, go consumer, XC 500, XC 600, XC 700, ZR 500, ZR 600, whatever you decide, nowadays they are all pumping out major power anyway.

    Those are my thoughts.
