This is going to be my first year racing sno-cross. I have rode polaris all my pretty much all my life and bought a 2000 440 edge racing sled last year and trail rode it and just bought a 2002 Pro X 440 liquid to race this year for sure. I would get a used race sled you can find good deals on them the have a lot more bottum end power which you need for sno-cross and are built to take a major pounding. Just dont get any farther behind than a 3 year old race sled because you are starting to lack power and strength in the sled. What type of sled are you racing, what brand.
