Boosted sleds? That make more power than a stock niner? How low is the tq curve though? I bet they are a blast to ride

Traction sled does 150 mph in 1000 ft. My ditch sled with a 162 in track did 120 in 1000. Working on getting the apex to 130 this year.

At first it was, now that I'm used to it, it's not bad at all. Traction sled excelerates so hard it makes your eyes water, but its on rails. The apex I have to pedal at 35, then again at 80, then just lean to steer as the skis are 4ft off the ground whenever its wide open. I just bought a fabcraft rear skid with fox floats, I'm hoping to keep the nose down with it.

Looking to put a drop visor on, can't figure out which I want. 1. Strait, 2. Low in the middle, 3. Low on the outside.
