  1. E-tec 2 reliability and Gen 4

    Whadya expect from a sled with that much pink on it ?
  2. E-tec 2 reliability and Gen 4

    Nice ! Like a high revvin' short stroke small block with a race fly wheel.
  3. E-tec 2 reliability and Gen 4

    Interesting video. I like the booster injector idea coupled with the lower drag magneto. Can anyone attest to how razor sharp the throttle response is - compared to everything else out there ? Also, I am paranoid of all the new motors with computer controlled oiling - I'm worried that the EPA ratings are just not enough for bullet - proof motors. I really want to be wrong on this, but ...
  4. E-tec 2 reliability and Gen 4

    Gotta say that "fuel economy" is not that critical to me, given varying conditions and weather. What is critical is having a large enough fuel tank to ensure 100+ mile range in any conditions.
  5. Great ride down the rail trail today - Hali down to Kinmount. Beautifully groomed. First time out this year with the big turbo 2up and it ran like a champ. Smooooth running and nicely mild this morning. My wife had a great ride. The B West trail from Maple Lake down to Hali was in great shape too. Thanks HCSA, having a great season so far. Here's hoping the rain tomorrow doesn't set back a good start to the season.
  6. A quick shout out of 'Thanks'

    Nothing worse than the perversity of inanimate objects. It is always great when some sledders stop and make a huge problem vanish in an instant !
  7. Thanks Livin' Btw, could you post the next groomer pass on the rail trail. Was down to Kinmount today - lots of new snow, but heavily moguled underneath, very choppy. Needs some groomer TLC. Would like to take the better half out riding double, but not till it gets groomed.
  8. Ran Little Hawk and Big Hawk lakes yesterday. They were pretty good, with previous slushing all frozen up. Quite a few riders out - no stakes though. Has any one run Kennisis, Redstone, Moose and Eagle ? Any info would be greatly appreciated.
  9. I think they have to have that lake staked with the rail trail open to the school yard. Don't want sleds running the walkways to get lunch.
  10. Thanks HCSA for the efforts in getting the rail trail open to Haliburton. The first step to a great sledding season !
  11. Now that we are on the other side of the Christmas Holiday, with lots more snow, we should be seeing lots of activity ( panning at least ) on the trail system and lots of updated, current info on the HCSA website and Facebook page - which have been very sparse on info so far this year. Trying to remain upbeat for this season... The rail trail is GREEN up to Kinmount. I'm green with envy and red with questions.
  12. You have a LOT of friends here in the HCSA, Livin' . Keep on posting.
  13. It could only happen to me

    Methane in the "Coal Mine" ? Sorry to see you get out of sledding, but you can't drive the old cars in the winter, that's why sledding makes so much sense. There must be some way to keep your sledding costs down to keep yourself in the game. Maybe stay out of the pricey new sled market and employ a vintage attitude in keeping an older sled running too ? Lots of older sleds and parts out there and if you do your own work, it can be a lot of fun and economical too. Cruisin' the trails is just as much fun, even if you only get a few rides in.
