I went out to the pond tonight. 22deg. Conditions are as follows icy/crusty top that will support sled and me (165lbs). Breaks through to about 5" of powder. After about 200 or so feet ther sled will plane on top of crust. Sled set up. 360 mains. v force 3 reeds. Speed werx air intake. Limiter strap as long as stock hole will allow. Coupler blocks removed. Spring blocks on #1. 1" track with 102 1.175 studs. Thick shim removed from seconday and installed a thin to replace it. Reverse installed 18/40 gears. Distance is 2 tenths of a mile marked off by speedo. I know its not the most accurate measurement but its the best i had. Was figuring about 1000ft.
