Every winter me and a couple friends make sort of a lame snowcross track by his house. It is nothing like the real thing but it sure is fun!! Anybody else do anything like this?

The 440 fan engine has more power than the 550 fan engine. Why would you want a motor with less power than the one that came in the sled.

We made a motocross track this year for our bikes, and now I am waiting for snow to try my 01 MXZX 440 out on it before my first race. I heard the landings are a lot harder if you don't make everything out of snow, but owe well it will still be a lot of fun!! The problem is that is was 67 degrees today!! I hope winter comes soon!!!

sweet i always thought of bringing the tractor and the dump drailer to a field, filling the trailer with snow from snow banks and making a snocross track... lol it'd be sweet


Duct tape much like the force... it has a light side, a dark side.... and it holds the world together!

Me and my buddies use a skid loader, a plow truck, and some round bales to make our track in the field. Last year was my first year with my 440 liquid, and i love it.
I'd also agree with erick; the Pro X 440 fan does have more power than the 550 fan. The 550 is designed for the average trail rider, not all-out racing.

I still don't have it home yet.I had to leave it at the dealer because it came with the wrong ignition parts and won't run when it's warmed up.(bummer)Of course, being that the sled is only a couple of weeks old, the part is on back order, so I won't have it for a couple more weeks. sigh.I'll get a pic when I get my sled home.

A couple buddies of mine have a mx track and they race mx in the summer and sno-x in the winter. They got brand new AC sno pro 440's and do a 80 ft tabletop, a huge triple, big doubles and whoops, these are hard even on a mx bike. It's sweet. I can't figure out why they took 1st and 2nd in a local sno-x race.
