A boosted sled is a boosted sled is a boosted sled, dude what else needs to be said about that?

When I bought the Dragon they went through setup with me and answered any questions I had, they'd better do the same with the new sled. I can't do the setup and still have a warranty, he said they have to do the setup. I'll be going over it with a fine tooth comb when I do get it home, just like I did with the Dragon.
The M8 is the closest in riding position, handling, etc. to the Pooplaris. I have heard NUMEROUS XP owners say they don't like how the sled handles. If you liked your Dragon I bet you'd like the M8 and wouldn't like the XP.

If you think you're wimpy 800 can keep up I suggest we line them up and see. Smack talk is great but lets put some money on this duel. $100? Gas to the Snowies? I'm that confident that I'll win.... are you?

Have fun tuning your boosted sled for low and high elevation. Polaris doesn't have the best track record with their 800 and now you want to go throw a turbo on it? Go for it but make sure you get Wolfie to right your trials and tribulations essays for this website.

You might want to take it to a local church to get blessed when you're going through it. It will need ALL the help it can get.

Looks like mud hit a nerve.....lol

I dont think mud was saying he could smoke you in a race he was just saying it will go anywhere your beloved M8 would go.

Poo has had problems with the 800's but from what I read these new 800's are worlds apart from the previous ones. Time will tell how well they perform.

Nah, I just love me some good smack talk.

Poo's 800 might not have reliability problems (time will tell) but it sure is lacking in the horsepower department. 143hp <snicker> is pretty damn embarrassing.

Embarrassing is when the 143hp sled highmarks the mighty M8.


All naysayers will be quieted once we get snow.

Salesman called and said all the computer says for a delivery date is October. He said he checks every monday and when it says something different he'll call me. I told him I'll probably still call once a week to check lol.

It won't highmark my 2010 M8. More HP and a better track. Instead of talking smack why don't we make a bet? $100? $200?

I believe mud got the 136" and you have what?155" ? I hope you should be able to get a little more hieght....lol. I think the RMK would give your M8 a little trouble.

You haven't ridden with Slanteye or you'd know just how true this post is. Put Slanteye on a 136" and he'd get stuck before leaving the Frathouse.

His sled is a 144 and is lighter.

How many times will I have to ask.

IF YOU'RE SO CONFIDENT MUD WHY DON'T WE BET? I'm game for $100+.

We can line them up on a hill, on a trail, or wherever. PUT UP OR SHUT UP!

Cuzz even my Poo/KittyKat dealer says if ya want handling and better horse powere transfer go Poo, if you are fixated on HP #s then its Kat. But more hp doesnt mean you win the race or even climb the highest. Handling handling handling and power transfer is what equals wins. But i think all you fuckers that are affraid to run hte Ol Tripps(MUD) are chicken shits!!!hahahaha

If you ever put your kretch down and get a smaller sled you'll see how stupid you sound. OF COURSE YOUR MOUNTAIN SLED WILL GO FURTHER THAN A TRAIL SLED IN THE YOOP! Did everyone hear that? I admitted that the pussy riding a mountain sled in the Yoop SHOULD out climb my TRAIL sled.

Did you go everywhere Cuzzi did with the Dragon?

I would imagine the Assault would be more capeable than the Dragon was.

Your 144 is a mountain sled in deep snow. It has tipped up rails that make it perform like a trail sled. I realize the 153" is too much for the UP but is good for out west. We can race on a straight trail or wherever you want Mud. I'm not scared of power vs. power.
