600 IMPROVED=3CYL YAM,FST POL,660 CAT,1000 DOO
700 IMPROVED=ALL 4 CYL YAM
800 IMPROVED=Z1 TURBO


**Improved Open 4 Stroke** NOTE
Same rules as improved except you can run any cc engine,aftermarket turbos,nitrous,supercharger,etc. There are a couple of guys that have Aftermarket Trail Suspension that enquired about running in this class. I.E. AD Boivon ZX-2, or Timberland. These are trail suspensions specifically designed for Mountains, snow and bumps, and are not an Ice Race Suspension (i.e. Wahl, Proline). I do not see them as an advantage over a stock suspension when racing a studded track on ice. I therefore agreed to let them run their sleds if they show up. This exception is for this Improved Open Four Stroke Class Only and does not apply to any other class. The idea of this class is to get more hopped up four strokes out racing and is a Pilot class for this year. If it goes smooth, common sense is used and no bickering, it may set a standard for this class to happen in the future. I want to mention this now so there are no surprises come race day. Looking forward to a good turnout, weather looks promising for the weekend.



CLASS RULES

Stock-only changes allowed are jetting(jets or electronic),clutching(weights,springs,helix,etc.mu st use stock clutchs for sled),gearing,lowering sled(2” of travel)

Chisel like, flat edge on one side only, sharpend trail studs to a point......Roetin hornet or scorpion studs, etc.....Studs you would not really use or stand up on a trail. Some examples can be found here...

We always tried to have a fun race for the kids. This would be a race before the regular classes. Insurance is an issue for spectators , not competitors. If a competitor is injured that is their option. Insurance at all venues is only for injury to spectators. We would gladly entertain a kids race before hand as we have done in the past. AGAIN it's for the fun of the kids. They will all receive a trophy and there really is no place for competition.

So basically any carbide stud that hasn't been altered right?
Like Gold diggers, Warthogs ect? Carbide studs that you would normally run in your trail sled.
In stock classes, are air box mods ok, like TPI vents or filters as per usuall?
