He shared information about why the mega-powered engine was created, how it was developed and what unique technologies it brings to the snowmobile industry. The complete interview is below, and the full story about the engine is in the October 2016 issue of Snow Goer magazine that’s on newsstands now.... Click here to Read more

    You're right. A 160 incher will ease the pain a little. It's Mr. Sleds fault. I feel like a recovering alcoholic in a bar...and Mr. Sled keeps buying me shots...I read the article 3 times...

    I got my 163 incher last fall so I have a feeling sitting in a tree next month is going to be like watching paint dry waiting for something bigger to walk by and thinking about when I will get that phone call to come and pick up my new ride
