Rode the 660 turbo today. Not a bad sled. Real quite.. sort of sneaks up on you. Does not feel heavy. Some turbo lag but when it gets spooled up it does stretch the arms. Overall, I liked this sled.

Thanks to Livingstons AC (Hillsboro NH) for the test ride.

Bobcat:
Do you think a woman with a medium build would be comfortable with this sled? I'm concerned about the weight...you mentioned specifically that it did not feel heavy. Looking for a solution for my wife next year.

flatlander,

I gave the following response on Amsnow:

<I would say it acts much like an older non-valve 550 or 600 but with more top end. <This sled will easily do 100+ yet it is smooth through the power band depending on <throttle opening. If you peg the throttle at 10mph you will feel some lag (sort of like a <lazy secondary) then things start too cook. You can actually get ski lift given the right <conditions but the ''hit' is not abrupt.

<Under ''normal'' conditions it is smooth and well mannered.

I think it would be great for her.

Flatlander,

Let me try this again.

I wrote this on Amsnow:

Again, I think it would be great for her.

My dad was talking to a dealer today and said that they'll have the turbo out for testing sometime soon, so I think were gonna go out and take it for a test. Hopefully though they will have a firecat to ride too. hehe.
