I&#39;&#39;m looking for some people that have raced in some Hillcross races.........mainly in the Mn and WI areas..

I&#39;&#39;m trying to build a mod sled to run in the x-games class...
What size paddle track is everyone running?
What size motor is everyone running?
Can you run coated pipes?

As it stands now im thinking of a 1 5/8 paddle track and a 700 mod motor built by trygstad...all this put into a 440 rev chassis...

Any and all suggestions and comments would be appreciated... photos would also be great ..

well i don&#39;t know about the guys in the mid west but here in the east just about everyone was running short tracks.most guys just ran their mod sno-xer&#39;s.the rules state that you don&#39;t have to run a long track to qualify for the x-games but if you do qualify you have to have a sled that meets the x-game specs ( min 136" track) by dec. of the next season.pretty lame..the short tracks have the weight advantage. i my self am running a t/s 680 mod, very light 370 lbs wet with a 136" x 1 3/8" padles.big paddles are great if the snow is loose but if it is hard they don&#39;t get any traction.the smaller motors seem to do real well because of the power to weight.last year i ran a 800 twin which would pull everything up the hill "when" it got traction.the 2" paddles were just to big for the snow conditions.
