I haven't had an opportunity to run the new Canadian Government Funded sled yet!!! But I here that the tax payers in Canada have built a new 1000cc sled. Dam French sleds

My bad
You are correct, he had a triple 700 SRX. He now has the Vector four stroke.

I used to have a lake racer and it beat me to death. I realized that the lakes are few and far between and the trail and off trail is 99.9% of what I ride. The snow is getting better here. We lost two feet but there is 2 feet left and it is a nice hard base. The UP is getting it now. Go to johndee.com for the best source. Great site. Packin is right, I have the same feelings about this sled and it only has 750 miles. My T-Cat has 10,000....in 3 seasons. The Fusion is a good start but expensive and more a prototype for the first year. The REV changed 100% in year two. Go with the REV, it is proven. But get it soon or they will be gone. The dealer here checked all over for the 136" 800HO I wanted.

The 136" renegade rides awsome in rough trails due to the extra length. It climbs hills and runs deep offtrail snow like a much longer tracked mountain sled and RER back up gear is the best there is on the market. Whack 162 studs in one and the acceleration on a hard pack will put butterflies in your belly too

P.S. Hey Mitch, hows the snow in MI?
SKI DON'T !!

You do know that there is a big difference between BRP, the makers of skidoo and Bombardier Intl., the makers of trains and planes right. One makes profits, one loses tax dollars.

Save your money. Buy an airline ticket south, book a nice hotel, and remember how much fun summer is!
