Have you guys seen these remote control 1/4 scale nitro powered snowmobiles yet? They look like a BLAST! Check them out at www.jpehobbies.com

Looks cool, I noticed that there are not any prices published. I'll bet they're gonna cost as much as a used full size sled.

Prices? sure, there are prices! On the upper left-hand corner click on "Ordering Page". There are prices for everything, even a RTR version! While not exactly cheap I have spent more on a weekend drinking binge, HIck-staGger.....

I know of at least two Ski hills that have build oval tracks outside the chalet in front of the bar so the patrons can watch/participate in the action! With a low-end motor (1.7hp) these things will go 35mph right out of the box! Who knows how fast it will go with a 3.0hp monster!

Yup, I agree with "stupid little amount of snow ", in fact I just got my FIRST snowfall last night - in central Wisconsin!

You can buy them at: www.jpehobbies.com -go to the 'Ordering Page' and place your order :) Right now there is only a nitro version but they will be releasing an electric conversion which will be easier for the little ones (or the alcholically impaired ;-). There will be male/female rider figures, upgraded suspension components, etc...........

Yup, it's a blast getting a group of these things together! I think they are trying to get something going with these at Eagle River, should be cool! Does anyone know if the Eagle River deal is televised?

Yup, you have two options for color - the manufacturer has announced that in the future it will release the following colors: green, blue, yellow, purple, clear along with the currently available red. The colored items include: hood, ski's and slides. The second option for color is paint, although it must be a "fuel-proof" paint, many colors are available as well as clear.

I'll take mine in Ski-Doo yellow please :)
