Yes 2 separate tracks but you have to turn the drive unit yourself to turn it.


Oh well that sucks.If it had some sort of steering breaks,I could see a tube frame sitting on top of those tracks.THAT would be AWESOME.
I guess it could be done but it takes the easy out of easy.


I'm working on an old 1976 Ski Doo Bombardier with a 440 Rotax replacing the 340 Rotax.Got it fired up this morning.Rebuilt the carb and ran new fuel lines inside the tank as they were rotted off.I'm not to fond of working on 2 stroke engines.What engines were in the Diablo Rouge?

That is one cool machine. I didn't know such a thing existed. It sounds like it would be difficult to drive with no steering other than brute force from the operator. I was in the Polaris dealer the other day and the snowmobile has certainly changed a lot in the last 30yrs.
