so whats the theory behind that first sled? Blow the hot exhaust down near the skis to melt the top bit of snow (think zamboni), which makes it a little more slick, therefor faster?? :lol2: :fluffy: :bounce: :dance2:
I think in the first picture, the thought was to use the exhaust as thrusters, to help take the weight off of the skis, increasing weight transfer and traction.
While on this sled, the thought was to increase down force, pinning the twin tracks to the ground, increasing traction.
Shades of Paultla racing in the late 60's and early 70's. I still remember Georges 650 triple as it lost a cylinder every time he hit a drift raceing out to Grand Island and back to Munuising. Ya could hear them for miles. They couldn't hear any thing for days LOL.
I also remember Rupp had a rail they ran on lakes as exibitions.
I DON'T KNOW IF THIS WOULD QUALIFY AS VINTAGE, BUT, ONE OF THE GUYS I WORK WITH SAID THAT BENDER MADE A SLED CALLED AN OUTLAW IN THE LATE 80'S. ANYONE HAVE ANY PICTURES OF SUCH A SLED? I HEARD OF ONE CALLED AN AVALANCHE TOO, A TRIPLE IN AN EXITER CHASSIS.
