    What do you guys think of the new sled styling? Polaris has the only subtle changes, the rest are very different. I really dislike the new headlights there using now. They look like stretched out eyeballs. The Firecat isn't to bad, except for the front cowling scoops is a little much. I like Yamaha's side view, but the front windshield and lights ruin it. The new Skidoo MXZ is the most outrageous. It's taller and shorter now. I totally dislike the new design. I still much prefer Skidoos styling last year over any of the sleds this year.

    The MX Z REV has some styling problems. The windshield looks gimped, and the track and seat seems to short.

    I don't mind the Firecat, except for the slant eyed headlights and funky scoops. The Mountain Cats aren't to bad besides the cheap handle bars and grab handle.

    Uh maybe.. see if I can find em.
    a buddy of mine sleds and thinks it'll suck, I guess inline 4, four strokes just can't compete with the big (single or twin, can't remember) 2 strokes that are common.. I don't really know much about sleds.. but with an R1 engine it can't be half bad :)

    here's the link

    why? before my R1 was winterized I started it every few days, it would start on the first crank down to almost zero.

    Skidoo all the way 4 me. The MXZ and Mach Z rule. The world snowmobile championship are held every year Eagle River, WI about a half hour from my house. SkiDoo represents very strongly every year. My brother rides snocross with his MXZ it is tight as hell. They sound tough too.
