Has anyone here ever been in a grass or pavement drag race? It sound like fun. I love to drag race!

I have been grass draggin' Ski-Doo's for quite some time. You should really give it a try. Enter a trail stock class at a local grass drag.

That sounds like fun. I barely ever have my snowmobile out in the summer.

I was thinking of doing some grass drags this summer, but I heard it was damn hard on studs. I don't feel like taking them out so, I don't think I will.

Well, I haven't personally been under water, just my friend. I was there though and it isn't fun. My heart almost stopped when I saw the poor snowmobile sink into the depths of the icy cold water. It was only like 4 feet deep, just the top of the winshield showed. When it went down, water got on the belt, it reved up, then sputtered away and died as the water choked the motor for air and took its life. We got it hauled out of there, around all the ice chunks, freezing cold. Then we got it home and were frozen, then started working on it. Just cleaned out the carbs, got new gas and oil, and drained the engine via the plug on the bottom. It started up right away but sputtered for a while to begin with. That was the first time we had had it out that winter and it ran the rest of the winter just fine.
