I was talking sleds with a guy at work and he asked me what size engine the guys were running at the X-games? I thought about it for a second and had no idea myself.

Are these guys running on 440s, or are they 800s in a 440 race chassis? What class are they running?

I know it's kind of a newbie question, sorry.

that would make sense, why buy/run a 440 when everyone else will be on 600's walking your "edit for bad language"?

They were running 600 mods at the X games.

I was told at race school that the 440X race sled will cease being manufactured after the 2008 model build.



Current sleds run under WPSA Racing are 440 Pro Stock and 600 Open Mod.

I for one, sure miss the 800 Open Mod sleds.

But they are just as fast as the 800's and plenty of snap even more so than the 800's since they are lighter and spool up quicker. Talked to the Amzoil team and they are getting as much HP out of the 600 MOd's that they were getting last year on the 800's so maybe they are on to something

On the track i wouldnt doubt the 600 could beat up the 800s. Put them on the strip and the 800 will show it whats up though.

my buddy races here in western canada and he races in both classes. 440 stock, but can do clutch work and 440 open class, and for that one he has thousands of dollars into his engine.

For a laugh we disconnected his limiter stars and with one on the seat and one guy sitting on the front he was able to stand it up straight(but on a good hard pack) (thats his 440 mod)

He told me next year it will be only 600 stock and 600 open. no more 440's. (maybe because of the four strokes????)

Just a guess but;

This will be a good thing. It may just make a new market nich that we as consumers will be able to buy. Instead of having to buy a 440 roller and drop in a 800 you can buy a 600 race sled. They may have 4 levels of sleds.

1 Trail
2 Adrenaline
3 x Package
4 600 Race

What do you think?

This post has nothing to do with the thread.
I am shamelessly trying to clear POOSUCKS from the last postings....

Something about seeing that ID....
