Hell yes, i've ridden a kawasaki with the 440 ltd motor, 2 plugs per cyclinder and twin pipes....very fast...and the interceptor...seen pictures of it but that's it. They are very rare sleds...

In terms of the snowtwisters...what great sleds.... the 340's would do 90mph...

One from the past...like just last year was that Scorpion triple-triple 800cc "Bull Whip" that was suppose to be out last year. But, as you all know, the main investor pulled out and the company was left with a warehouse full of parts.

Check out http://www.snowconnection.com/Features/articles/Scorpion to see what could have happened. I think this sled could have really kicked some major azz!

My 1974 new 440 ElTigre and you all would be in trouble, well if it 1974 again. Oh I'll take a new very light weight snocross sled with a mod free air Z (1975) engine. I had a new 440 Snowtwister and if it had an ifs front, rubber track, and super rear skid that would make a crazy snocross sled.

Oh by the way Kawasaki sleds never were fast. Of course I was racing back then so all trail sleds were slow but I don't ever remember any of the 78-81 tigers we had around backing down from one of those. Sorry.

I'm no Yamaha guy but I think they should bring back the Phazer. Yamaha made a BIG mistake by dropping that one!

I would like to see Polaris bring back the Indy Trail. I owned one of them and tho its not exactly a powerhouse the old 488cc motor is quite dependable. They make great beginner sleds. It was my first sled.
