Find races in your area. Most racers are more than willing to help. They may not tell you all their secrets, but will sure get you started.

Probably lots of videos on You Tube with all the little cameras out there. I would look there first. Find some guys in your area that do it and see if you can go to some of their meets and just hang out to start. Peace,beeler

Default race motor

The cost all depends on how far you want to go with your sled. Do you want a full race motor? Or lake racer? Race motor to build would be $300 to port each cyl. Cut the heads $150. Plate each cyl. $169 each. Race pipes $750. Bore carbs $150. Clutching around $200. Or you could probly could buy a complete race motor for $1700.I have one ready. A lake race motor would be cheaper. Around $500 to port and cut heads. Trail pipes $650. Then you need to revalve shocks to lower your sled. What are you racing on? Grass,Ice, Snow?

And if u are only going to use it for racing lower it. Stud it up and put a good clutch kit in it and a D&D power breather. That should get u started. We have a 01 ZRT 600LE and have beaten many bigger sleds with it

144 studs ? i sure hope they are brand new shovel points otherwise your wasting your time. you need at least 240 if they are trail studs. traction is everything you can have all the power in the country and if it doesnt hook up its worthless.
