Trying to order some UFOs for these 44mm racked Mikunis. The guy said he's not sure he's even seen anything like that before (44mm rack-setup).

The tube frame on a Redline is steel right?

Yep. Chro-moly steel. Same type used when building a dragster or funnycar.

That sled is built like a tank, you can smash trees down with it... can you post a pic of the clutch setup?

Does it have a recoil or just E-start?

E-start only. The frame is very beefy. But I don't think it's over-done. The sled has a different tunnel structure than the sled in the poster that's been hanging on the wall in my shop since 2003. Here's some pics of the clutching.

It has the Comet Pro clutch with 4 weights. Was told they are no longer in business. Was also told I'm wasting my time trying to use the stock expansion chamber. It will crack in half no matter what I do. So I will use some other pipe instead. I will keep the Bassani tailpipes. I was advised NOT to take the engine apart. I'll probably follow that advise. The electrical system has a myriad of problems. Not mine. But was told they will surface. Have lots to think about.

Is the track driven off the secondary's drive shaft ? I don't see a chaincase.

The drive train is similar to a Blade and/or Diamond drive. There's a set of helical-cut gears bathed in gear oil. Nobody I've yet talked to seems to know who made it. The electrical system is from France or Italy. I don't remember because it's not important. Was told the company refuses to support it and any replacements I may find on ebay are no better than what comes on the sled. Money would be better spent on retro-fitting some other, more readily available system. Thinking about just removing everything and swapping it out for an OEM system. But don't hold me to that!
