what are the pros and cons of owning this sled i will do a lot of ditch banging and very aggressive trail riding but i dont want to spend hours on end wrenching on it i dont mind a little work i will also use this sled to pull the portable around

what is a good year to buy and how hard is it to oil inject it and new heads for 92 octane

excellent dicth banger and aggresive trail sled, lousy for pulling anything, the race models are pretty high strung, so if you don't want to do much wrenching I would stay away from them. I think you would have to be a pretty hardcore rider to make the work worth it.

I am not allowed to post links on here so you will have find it your self but check out dootalk and all your 440 questions will be answered. I have raced or rode only 440's or race chasis since I was 14 years old(28 now) and they make a great trail sled with a little knowledge of them. Once they are clutched and jetted right they dont require any more wrenching than a normal sled. You do have to be willing to put some time into getting them right.

Depends on your gearing- I ran stock gearing with my 04 440 and had 88mph top end. My buddy raced his crosscountry and hit 102 down a river different gearing, smaller lug track etc. My 440 with the 800 motor is geared two teeth different than stock and it does 94 on the gps. (it gets to 80 without the ski's touching the ground)

    •   Not only that, but the boy they're hitching their wagon to ( Nunes ) said this;   Snip. "But he also re-stated his belief that Obama did not order the wiretapping of Trump Tower"  
    •   Those are great names from the kids. They seem to know where they will end up in the end! Instead of sweety, cuddles, lovey........  Lol
    • For something different and a little less expensive you could consider a Texas hog hunt.

    • Not nails but worse, they are self tappers from the metal roofing:)  Sorry, I need to take the angle grinder out there and zip those off this weekend.  Funny you bring up the name kabob, that is actually the name of one of them if they don't produce:)   Here is a short list of the names my kids came up with:   - Kabob - Soup - Nugget - Fried - Drummie - Pot Pie   I cant remember the others but you get the point...    
    •   I agree that in the long run, the very best thing that could be done is to completely repeal the ACA and then continue to reduce government involvement. The problem with that is this is a messed caused by government that would become a disaster at least short term for some folks if it were immediately repealed. At this point, government created the mess so it has an obligation to fix it with as little damage as possible to the people.
