They are really bullet proof and reliable in my opinion unless you mod the **** out of them but then they are probably still the most reliable sled out there

I think you will find thier reputation to exceed that of comparable sleds.

They all have thier issues but the M8 is a very well rounded sled.

Now fess up Ron, how bout the new DD. Seriously though they are easily at the top of the list for mountain sled reliability. Maybe even higher than the 4 stroke Yami's. I'm talking both the M7-8.
