A guy in our club knows someone who works for Yamaha. He said that it lifted the skis off the snow when he punched it - HE WAS ALREADY GOING 110 MPH!!!! Holy Crap!

Which would actually be 98 mph still impressive though. Speedo's lie on all machines especially on loose snow. I have had front end lift at over 100 just from a gust of wind hitting the front of sled. When the Thundercat's came out in 93 2 people going 120 flipped over backwards on flat ground in South dakota and died. Not safe to do unless you lower the sled for high speeds.

Blade I think your bud is feeding you a line, you wont pull the front end up when you punch it at 110 mph. First of all there isn't that much left to punch, and unless you rolling over a crest of a hill at that speed the front end isn't comming up. Are you sure he didn't say the wheel of the bike and was talking about an r1??? made me laugh though, thanks.
