I will go out on a limb and say....no! Not anywhere close to 220, 120 yeah but this guy has smoked himself dumb. Of course I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure I'm right!

My guess is that he did a few performance mods to it and 200 hp. and 220 mph. are just his wild estimates.

Impossible.

115 HP sled goes like 110 MPH. To go faster, you need incredible HP, even if it was 200 it wouldn't be breaking the 200 MPH mark. Not even close.

Plus think of how it would handle at that kind of speed. When you are going that fast, everything comes into play such as aerodynamics.

JMO anyway.

Maybe he meant 220 KM/H (132MPH) but even that would be questionable.

LOL!

Me recalls of a snowmobile video where a guy drove his sled off the cliff of a Mt. and free-falled until his sled smashed to pieces. Sled Necks video?

I would believe 200 Kph, for a 200 Hp sled. I've had mine to 118 stock so a 132 Mph for an extra 30 Hp sounds reasonable. 200 MPH NO WAY IN HELL on a 200 HP tcat. Mine is almost there although geared for the mountains isn't going to do more than a buck and a quarter. And that would be on a perfect day on a long run.
