I was paging through my old Hotsled magazines when I came across their box stock shootout for 98. Why dont the magazines feature or cover a box stock shootout on grass or snow anymore. I think it would make a great story. Whats the reason for the shootouts not being covered?

I remember the out of the box shoot outs in mags. In 98 everyone saw the tailights of the XC 6 and 7's all day.

The manufacturers drop off *Stock* sleds to be tested by the mags now.
If a Mag tested sleds off the showroom floor, they would piss of the losing manufacturer....and lose advertising money.

but the interesting part of the shootout was the 1/4 mile times and trap speeds, not how much black plastic there is behing the bars, there are no performance numbers in the mag. and anyway whats wrong with some competition between brands in the mags? It is what it is, and if its not good, were gonna find out on the lake or trail sooner or latter, right?
