Cool machine!

Seems to tractor around pretty good on the limited HP.

Details on the build?

Thanks!

Home made aluminum frame, Fiber carbon panel. Engine positioned low and glued on the front of the tunnel, very advanced driving position like the most recent snowmobiles. The rear suspension is home made for light possible.
Engine technology like Honda GX390 but 460cc, forged components, cam 306, ported, mikuni TM34, variable timing. 36HP 40lbft.

Weighs 300lb with gas so it weighs 200lbs less than a regular wet mountain snowmobile (weight that is mostly subtracted from the front) with a similar track (153 '' * 2.6 ''). It has a traction and incredible buoyancy at low speed. He can stop and start up hill without digging a deep trench. The high speed traction is less than that of a mountain snowmobile because of the very big power difference, but I use it mainly in the forest where it is difficult to go fast.
There is no more light sport utility snowmobile, it has the weight of an Elan with a mountain track and 3 times more torque.

All ready 2 feet of new snow fell last week, not counting that it had fallen quite a bit the previous weeks. It was just above zero with sun, so the snow was often sticky, it would have been too easy if it had been dry.

A little side hill, I'm not good in this discipline, but with this machine we can go very slowly, no need to give the gas to dig the caterpillar, no need to shift on one leg and the other in the air, not even need to steer.

Taken for the first time with the M, the disadvantage when it does not move more is that it is really deep hollow. As the rear bumper is nearly 3 feet below the surface of the snow, and the bumber is a good 38 '' above the underside of the track, the rear of the track is just under 6 feet under the snow and it there is still no land in sight!

When I fall down the snowmobile in virgin space, its calle mid breast.

Despite the limited power compared to the huge track, the engine climbs to 5600RPM initially and holds its 5200RPM in the coasts with deep and wet snow. (5200RPM is the speed at which I measured the engine at its best performance) It has a little more torque than the 600ACE.


It would take a wiper on the gopro, the passages normally cleared are no longer at the height of the snow

The front are no name, but They are very light and they do the work. The central shock is a Fox Float 3, it is he who is the most important for my use.

I made a table of data. The first 2 are series snowmobiles that I lightened more than I could with a budget raissonable.
The next 3 are snowmobiles made from scratch.
The last 4 are small sport utility snowmobiles for comparison
