So this summer I will be building a new rev. Starting with a really nice 2003.5 Blair Morgan tunnel. X- package shocks all around. 1.5x 121x 2.86 track and 8 tooth machz drivers. Debating on what rear skid to use, I have two sc3's but an upgrade would be nice. And other following mods as well. Anyways I have no motor, and I'm not sure what to put in this thing. I'm looking for max power but still be able to be a reliable trail/ ditch banger. 700? 700 SHR sdi? Rk tek 734? 800r? 860r? A triple? 4 stroke? Rotary? Diesel? Lol I wanna hear some feedback what's the best motor I can put in this thing?

I would opt for a RK Tek 734 or Sled Head Racing 770. Can't beat them for power and fun factor!

As to which skid to use I'd look at a minimum of a SC4 or newer. If your wanting a ditchbangin trail ripping with a touch of reliability, you may want to consider a ported 600sdi with a fuel programmer, or if you really want some HP, go with a BB 800. But for all out reliability with 125hp you're not gonna beat a 600 SDI or Etec

SC-4 skid or newer, as for motor... lots of folks claiming 600 sdi. It's a good motor but personally I don't care for all the electronics/relays, they can be a pain in the rear. Of course they'll fail when it's least convenient. dollar for dollar and ease of wrenching n tuning I don't see how you could go wrong with a good old carburated engine. Max power, 800 mill for me. Want more, Kelsey or Big John are just a call away

Sc4 skid is a better ride and traction than a sc3,,but the front arm bushings wont last as long without service or grease fittings and or better made bushings than alum

Not sure what engine but probly wont be real easy or cheap to adapt a 600sdi to a non sdi sled(you probly would need to buy a wrecked one for all the parts needed) wireing harness/gastank,fuel pump/engine

I like my 600ho and my 800ho ptec power,,but wish i could get rid of the ptec crap on top of the carbs?

I have a 700 topend for the next future build and leaving it stock for 87 octane gas and hopefully it will last a while also

Agree. For the complexity and $$$ to me the sdi would be a pain. I've always liked the sounds of the 700's and have herd good reviews about them as well, never driven a sled with this motor though.. I've driving a stock 800r in a xp. Definitely geared to tall for me. Most my trails are less than 8-10 feet wide and twisty so I prefer good bottom end power like a 4 stroke.

I can't seam to find any topics but has anyone put a carbed Yamaha 3 cylinder in a rev? Definitely would require some modification but I'm not Stanger to that. Would the extra weight be worth it? Probably not?
