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)

    • Lets try it like this.
    • Yah - great looking decoys! MJ - I'm just letting you know I'm breaking into your house and stealing your spear rack.  And mount. I found a rickety old 5 tine when I cleaned out the garage.  I might give it a try this season.
    • I can't identify any of those for sure, and certainly wouldn't recommend eating any of them.  The first pic might be some older honey mushrooms, but it's pretty tough to tell.  I've got about 8 mushrooms that I can positively id.  Beyond that, it's just not worth being wrong.  There are still some fresh hen of the woods mushrooms around the metro if you get out into some oak woods.  You can find them around the base of big mature oaks and they are pretty easy to identify.  Found about 20 on Wednesday.  Many were a little old, but was able to take 4 nice ones home.  Here's a pic of one that I left behind.
    • I'm putting it on my calendar.  Don't forget the Nord Lord trophy since it has a new home to go to. 
    • Detroit News breaks 143 year tradition, endorses Gary Johnson.   The endorsement is the first time in the paper’s 143-year history it has endorsed someone other than the Republican Party’s nominee. http://www.breitbart.com/news/detroit-news-breaks-tradition-endorses-libertarian-gary-johnson/  
    • Kind of like Trump did Monday night.
    • Gets on a bunch of talk shows. Jumps another 5 points in the polls.. This just ain't working the way it's supposed to...
    • Looks like it's unanimous then. Good thing my vote goes to Hillary since it seems everyone thinks she is the best person for the job.
    • In your situation I'd try to be standing around the time you expect the deer to show up since it sounds like your upper body will have branch cover but not lose drawing ability. I usually set up off to the side and a little behind the tree from the direction I expect the deer to come from.  That way I get the full benefit of the cover of the tree I'm in. I stand a lot though; I rarely sit.  My ears tell me quite a bit but I'm usually looking around that tree all the time and my body is close to it.  I seem to be able to get away with quite a bit of movement and am rarely at 15 feet or higher.
