Hurricane,

I have checked out all of your videos. Your set up is pretty impressive. I'm not worry about the season being over with here. My son has been bugging me to do something with it. So when ever you are up and building parts again please let me know so we have something to work on. My email is Jopey66670@aol.com 

Thanks

The kit is worth the wait..... I tried gearing down with a 12t pinion because my boys are young...it's too low....track just sinks in powder snow....too much torque ( I'm going to go 2s and build from there!)

Found bearings now just to install with sanding trick.

Paddle ideas anyone....my fear is ripping track apart and not findinga replacement.

Hey JC8
thanks I'm glad you like the kit.
I studded my track with finishing nails with the large head on them.
I put one every other lug and only one for each side just make sure they are out of the line of the wheels.
Mine has no problems doing wheelies on ice

I am slowly getting back to having everything running I use to get only 2300 rpm from my mill now I get 6793 rpm should
help with cutting parts faster.
I am still tweaking the wheels for the ski's so it can be run in the summer just like in my vids on youtube.

Hi Hurricane, do you think you will have any kits ready this spring?
If not, I'd rather wait till next winter, that is, if you plan on making them again next winter.

Paging Dr. Hurricane!! .... Dr. Hurricane are you out there? It's getting cold so I figured that this thread needs to get fired up again. I know that you've been thinking up all kinds of tweaks for the 2013-2014 year model. Not that there is anything wrong with last year's beauties.

So just wondering..
Is there ever going to kits available again or should I just go and make my own? I've had all this money in components just sitting here...all winter.
Just want to know if you're done or if I should keep waiting.
