Just wanted to know what is the fastest speed you have witnessed or heard of a sled going. Or how fast your sled goes. [orange][/orange][red][/red][:p]

Well about a month ago a guy who was here at our local radar run achieved 130 miles an hour on his Polaris Storm with a Genesis engine but I have heard of stories of people going well in excess of that.

I wouldn't mind having a t-cat but i hear they have so much power that there not as trail friendly as a big twin.

the big sleds can be real trail friendly,
i am not into bikes as a whole yet, understanding them from a component i can do, i will be getting into them more if i get the job i am looking into.
there was a guy on rush lake with a bike doing 108 in the 1000'. he had sled picks right threw the tire.

Don't get the wrong impression about tripples over twins in trails , cause believe me ,, they hold MORE then their own,, even with my heavy 575lbs t-cat , i can fallow pretty much anything or anyone i want if i decided to go a little crazzy, and i find my machine will hold the snow better on top end more then any other machine , WHY?? because she's heavy ,, making her REAL stable ,, plus i'm better on gas then all the other machines i ride with , ehehheh 2 for 1 deal

I have a 83 yahama bravo that goes from 0 to 45 in about 10 secs.[:D]

About 6 weeks ago there were 2 rx1s doing radar runs on Big Lake and there were hitting 120 to 130 but there are owned by some guys at Anchorage Yahama so I don't know what they have done to them.
