what are your guys experiences with these? a buddy of mine has one for sale, reallll cheap, and i was wondering what there like? are they fast? do they beak down?/ any problems? pros and cons of this sled would be great... it has some cracked plastic, since it was rolled once, but it runs good and everything, i havent seen it and wont get to till christmas.. but any comments would be great!

From what I understand, they are incredibly quick on the trails, lots of snap off the line, but top end isn't that great. Of course, the friend I have who had one did all of his driving with 580's, so those comments would hold true for any 440. I want one though.
I am currently riding a yamaha 4S. Who would have guessed?

I have a Jag 440 for a backup sled and for the kids and I find for trails I ride it more then my 580 and love it. Hope that helps some.
