Alot of them use there personal sleds. But the ones "we" buy are fan cooled touring models. Minocqua usually has phazers but I think they are running vectors this year.

"police sleds" i have only been pulled over by indy 500s and those sleds have all the computers and radios and radar guns.

but most of the cops use there own sled with just a radar gun a ticket book. biggest one was a t-cat 1000, and some indy 700 and F-7

i have talked to a couple out icefishing and they all rode 550 polaris touring's and i asked what would happen if someone started to run from them. they said unless they commited a serious crime they usually let them go so they arnt put in any more danger. but they go looking for the sled after and if they find it your ticket wont be a small one anymore

my friend's dad talked to his buddies at a bar they met up at and they claimed that the cops were chasing them and they ran. there was two of them and they were on the lake doing 120 on their 900's they claim and there were cop cars lined up ahead on the road crossing and they jumped it. the first guy said he cleared them all together and the second said he hit the top of the car. they both got away. now this could be and sounds like bs. but a good story anyways. i personally wouldn't risk it.

couple years ago i saw a couple police ridding the RX 1's. They were all decked out with lights and everythign to so i dont think they were private sleds. You can out run one or maybe two cops but no one can outrun a radio.

If you are running from them they can not shoot at you.
Why not??? Failure to stop for officer. Would you like to take that chance????not me.
An officer can not shoot at you for running. You have to make a Hostile advance on a civilain or the officer to even merrit them shooting at you. If you are putting yourself or others in danger by running they will most likley brake the chase off.. Many city police, county police and some state police departments have a "no chase" clause.

^^^^True, they are not supposed to but who's to say they won't.

They may break off the chase. It is real easy to block off all trails in that area and hope you run into them.

i've been pulled over by a cop on a sled before. it was an XLT600. me and my buddy were going on a trail that cuts across a lake, i had my little jag screaming going 70-75mph, looked back, saw a sled following, thought he'd pass but never did, didn't know it was a cop.

get up to the next road crossing and he pulls along side of me with his little lights going. he only wrote me a ticket for expired registration, didn't even say anything about speeding. (speed limit in MN is 50mph)
this was in ham lake, MN.

It seems in the story foxracing told, they outran the cops on the other side of the radio.

Yeah, i'm sure they will shoot. Running from police is not a justifiable offense for them to shoot at you.

Maybe not but when they tell you that, In front of 10 guys, I am not the guy that wants to find out.
