thank you so much for that info..........there should be more guys like you that log into this site...... :chug:Ice you dont have much traction problems, So you can drop lower gears. 660 on ice is won in the first 60 feet so u want to rip out of the hole, Snow its not as good to gear low because all you will do is spin more. For example, a ZR 500 will beat a 1000 t-cat in 60 feet. Its not because its a faster sled out of the hole because put them both on ice and the t-cat will spank it from the word go. Its the t-cat spins more because of the extra power. Well its the same thing when it comes to gearing, you dont want the sled to have to much power out of the hole.
680? why? most sled drags are always 660 ft, maybe not exact.....why do you ask? if so I doubt i'd change anything[/b]
what kind of sled do u have with a 185hp?I have 185 hp, 1.375 track & run 20/44 for 660 ft snow drags. it barely spins & kills everything i've come up against. don't say holeshot is not crucial on snow. your machine needs to pull like hell out of the gate & keep pulling all the way. 660 ft is not much time to catch up when you get beat outa the hole. set up your suspension properly & you will not spin on a hardpacked snow start. lastly, don't try to be a wheelie king. keep those skis down[/b]
