IT IS A DRAG MACHINE FOR RADAR RUNS,,, NOTHING HAS BEEN MODIFIED ON THE SLED ITSELF EXCEPT FOR AIR SHOCKS.... I WILL POST MY NEW PICTURES LATER,, YOU WILL LIKE...

You are out of hand brother. One minor detail, your carb bowls will run out of fuel unless you buy wedge shaped floats. These carbs are not meant to take G forces east and west and control fuel level, just north and south. Might even throw a cup full of fuel at you too out the vents when you accelerate forward. Food for thought, maybe when it runs out of fuel, the hesitation will be timed about the same time you realize you are on your death run, who knows. If we don't hear back from you after testing, I'll have a clue what might have happened to the driver.
Good luck

Don't worry none Bruce, It won't even survive the torsional forces involved to get outa the hole to trip the start beams.....

Nice project!!!
Do any of you remember the drag bike called the "Barn Job"? Unless I am mistaken, that was the first time someone used a V-8 on a bike. It was also a 327 SBC mounted sideways. They had a trick stand that would collapse with a trigger release. It was a hand full.... :D

If its a problem, just turn the carb 90 degrees and be done with it

Worst advise I ever heard...........Carb will be fine,you ever own a blown motor??,my biggest concern would be oiling,a circletrack pan would be nice,if you dont have one already..jmo...

Getting ready to pull out the polaris again. Looking forward to testing the direct drive setup in it now.. Did a few grass drag test runs over the summer and is scary fast now...

I love the gomobile. Oiling is the first thing I thought about then all that white stuff on the ground. Looks cold. Not for me :lol:

I've never seen a snow mobile so excuse my ignorance. What kind of transmission does it have and how'ed you hook it to the V8?


I would have to put a fake pull starter on it if it were mine! And act like I was pulling it when I hit the starter button!

It has a snowmobile clutch mounted to the crankshaft and runs a normal snowmobile belt.

I like the fake pull starter idea, going to do that for sure!!!

Actually since I built the sled, I look forward to winters now. I have had more fun and excitement with this then you could imagine. I will never forget the first time I took it to the snowmobile drags event at anchor bay and 200 peple went into shock over it..
For the first two years I had a holley 650 dp on it and never missed a beat ever.. Now it is fuel injected with a holley pro jection and works very well also.. Thanks for the comments

I really like that hot rod you have built. I could see myself on that thing about 40yrs ago! Bad to the bone, cold bones in your case! Just one sugestion, if you turn many rpm's I'd like to see you put a harmonic balancer shield or sfi damper on it. Extreme cold weather may make it more brittle, I don't know. It may never let go, but if it does you are too close to it with nothing in between. JMO. Keep on racing and having fun.
