Interesting. im really leaning towards this now, all i can find for video on it is polaris commercials, i dont suppose youve got any of your buddy on his?

And how does it run for temp? my IQ is fan cooled, durring last years poker rally, i was one of the only ones not over heating. alot of my riding is on trail, packed snow with the skimmer. is it hard to keep the sled cool?

My '11 SBA needed ice scratchers , then it handled marginal conditions. But of course a rad + fan will be better

No recording was allowed at the time but he said if he needed a dual purpose sled he'd get it in a heart beat! And rides a pro. Temps were amazing. The cooler does an amazing job you'll have no problem at all!

Definitely gets up and goes! 👍. My buddy is a good friend of a few team riders I have over in sweden. Trails to pow it was great and kept up with the 18 800's.
