Well here's the Old beast. It's a 89 Indy Trail, 488 fan w/ 1" track. It's nothing like the sleds out today, but it still holds it's own. It likes to be airborne, and being as light as it is it's easy to do!

yeah it does. Have the pipe and manifold sand blasted and throw a coat of high temp paint on that would look great under there.

It's melting fast. Just enough for a half way decent pic. They say we will get some tonight, but who knows.
Yeah the engine has a bit of elbow grease rubbed into it. I was thinking of cleaning the pipe up, or shelling out some cash for a new one, for a few extra ponies!

After this weekend I'm pretty lucky this beast still looks like the pictures. Had an unexpected run in with a nice deep ditch. Cracked the windsheild, broke a ski skin, and bent a carbide. Pretty minor compared to the thoughts that went through my head before I hit. Not sure how high I flew in the air, but I'm glad I had a helmet on for the landing! That and the sled some how landed on its feet with out me. A crash that you can walk away from is one that you best not forget.
