ok heres a question to ponder
What do you think is the best sled ever made?
i think the rev in general was the best sled because it was the first one to put the engine under the dash insted of totally infront of the rider. With the engine farther back it makes the sled more stable... atleast to my feel.

so give me the sled that you think is the best of all time and why you think its the best ever made?

Indy 500, maybe an XLT. Rev. I think i'd do better by the decades then all time. Slide rail? Oil inj? Ind frt susp? Rubber tracks?!! Had to edit in Yammi Enticers.

I'd have to say a properly tuned and set up 99 xc700sp. Not just because I have one but because of it's liberty reliability, it's reasonable fuel/oil economy, sounds great stock, looks awesome (especially the racer seat with knee pads), plenty of power, and is great on the trails. It's obviously not the best sled ever made but I'd call it the best sled of the 90's and the last real and best "trail sled". I know it cant compete with rider forwards but again its my opinion.

I think you have touched on some of the true greats! I have been fortunate to have had all but the Rev and that is because I didn't/don't enjoy their riding position.

My pick would be the Enticer. Bullet proof even today,go anywhere, through anything and as much fun I've ever had on a snowmobile!

Guess what? When you are the first fucking guy to respond to someones post it's pretty goddamn impossible not to know what you are referring to so DON'T FUCKING QUOTE THE WHOLE POST AGAIN. It just loads up HCS's server with unnecessary bullshit and slows things down.



Anyways, I'd say Indy 500, and Tundra.
