Snowmobile : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

How about a snowmobile? If snow's a problem then go across mud or grass.

A snowmobile don't need no snow, you know. If you go fast enough (i.e.: flat out) it will skim across the top of open (MELTED) water. The trick is getting it to turn. Open-water Summer snowmoblie racing is apparently quite the thing in the Great White North when the weather warms up for a week or so in august.

Snowmobile??? You mean you can make snow that moves??? How does that work?? (Joey attempts not to laugh too hard!)

Snowmobiles have been mentioned several times before. That being said, racing them in the summer on grass/dirt strips has become popular in some locations (hmmm...probably couldn't call it a snowmobile, perhaps a grassmobile).

You know, if you think about it, we could call them "Personal Half Tracks". Now doesn't that sound a whole lot more imressive?!

Snowmobiling on grass is called grass drags here in the US and on pavement its called asphalt drags theres specical tracks with no lugs on track and roller blade wheels on skis for asphalt racing and i guess you could call grass drags mud racing after a few sled raced they shred the grass with steel picks in tracks
