most race sleds would be great for ditch banging, but the IQR should be unreal....

They are very good for ditch riding. I would recommend riding one before buying one though because they are not for everyone. They steer hard do to the increased ski pressure they have and on cold days they are not built to keep you warm. I would recommend getting a 2006 or newer with all the updates,the 05s had a few issues but nothing that cant be resolved.

great ditch banging sled. make sure if you go look at a few to look them over well because they tend to get beat up.

I ditchbang my 06 IQR 600 and I love it, didnt get much seat time on it this year but when I do its a blast. Definatly take a look at the link posted above from akracing. That is a great website and Tom is an IQR genious. Good luck with your decision!

I understand that but i was wondering if the 440 would get like 15 mpg or so cause that would be ideal for me and do they have fuel gages or no because i could probably just snaggle a gas cap of off my dif sled cause that would just give me a new guestament.

Not good on gas. and with these IQRs the tanks are small! The polais tank claims 8.8 gallons, but I dont think it is that big. TrailTank is finally making one that is 10 gallons. Like Darin said above, never drive by a station without filling up. My advise is devise a rack on the tunnel to carry @ least 2 extra gallons because you will be the first guy to run out for sure.
