A friend of mine just came back from Yamaha service school. The factory people told them that the RX-1 beat the SRX by 8 sled lengths in 600 ft. That is fast. Those of you out there with open minds will bve impressed by this. But there are those who can't imagine that any brand other than their own could build a good sled. Sooner or later we all have to realize that all the manufacturers make good sleds. They all have had their pink elephants too.
