Had one of them HO 600's '06 went like the wind but it just couldn't quite break 100 in 1000' !! It whipped a pile of Polaroids and kitty cats on the ice, oh and just creamed them Yamaha ha ha 's then my brother would just add to the misery with his MachZ 1000 twin .. 105mph in 1000'.
And its snowing like crazy right now and im stuck at work till 10pm.... Ugh!!! All week no less.....

Really, not much here, inch and a half or so, nothing like it was to be.

Not worth the time to go out and plow.

100 is plenty fast enough for me!  I'd sure hate to try to pull that 1000 out of the ditch or a drift!!  Boat anchors..  My dream sled is a newer ETEC 600 X package..  It will keep up with the 1000 a fair shake!  Displacement isn't the only thing with 2 cycles..  JD proved that with their 70's 340S sleds..  Only 340CC but dusting the bigger CC ones @ the track!  Listing of JD Snowmobiles HERE That was the beginning of chassis design changes..  I rode an old Skiroule and the design of the sled was ahead of it's time with the motor placement..  Had a ball on that thing till I busted the crankshaft jumping drifts..   :wallbanging:   (shortly before it broke, some guy pulled over and took pictures of me & my buddy flying off the hills!  Wish I had a copy of those babies!)
