1979 Chrysler Snorunner: 134cc 2 cycle Power Bee engine, 320A Tillotson carb with hp nelson exhaust!
Been There done THAT
what do you need ?
I gotz two.
One 5 second rip across the yard is like a handfull of coke and ritalin.
You must have some wicked snow storms in Texas. Ha Ha!
Especially after you are holding onto it with one arm because you forgot to use the compression release to start it and it about ripped your arm off and it hurts too bad to hold onto anything !
I dont use the compression release, that just for kids.
Lived in Iowa for 38 years moved to Texas last year .
Owned probably 10 sleds in my life
Scorpions,Masseys ,Ski-doos were my specialty .
Someone sell me one nowz.
I got the 'arm ripped off thing' going once or twice, myself.
If you have one with good compression believe me , I don't care if you are hercules , you will feel it !
I have the High performance Model with all the speed mods. Mint Condition. North Colorado. $1000.00 and its yours. Its fast to the point where its really quite dangerous. (but you dont have to go that fast).
P.S. I have high Compression and I dont use that sissy Decompression either.
Yeah, just pull out the .063 head gasket or .093 whatever and leave the little one to make high compression.
Then use the 15 tooth clutch instead of the 17 to get out of the hole faster and have a friggin heart attack, complete with the military exhaust.
Those are the rippers.
I only use the de-comp actually when i rip out the pull-starter and have to use the emergency rope wrapped around the motor/flywheel to start it. Out in the sticks.
Fuckers sound scary tho'.
hahaa, wiffleball; I had to favorite your video. I couldn't find it before, so now I got it!
since we're all here, I'll pop mine up too, but Wiff did his first.
broke a rib jumpinga sno-rabbit/sno-runner last year...we have one running and a parts bike at motion left. sweet fun. we keep ripping "teeth" off the drive track, and are considering building one with aluminum teeth instead of the plastic ones. anyone play with this yet? devin's planning a custom pipe for our running one, too.
let me know how it goes, i wanna make some track too.
the way the tracks on these are designed, it's essentially just a chain with plastic angles riveted to it in-line.
we're planning to remove the rivets and plastic, keep the chain, and insert aluminum angles in their place (easier said than done, the design for their attachment is a matter of some debate). we'll keep you posted, deez, but this may not be the kind of track you're looking to build (please tell me you're going to put track on an all-state?!)
Everytime i jump mine hardcore the track slips and i rip off section of paddles when i gas it after I land.
haaha I have 2 35cc snoblower motors that I was thinking about twinning up possibly and making my own design of a ski-bike. Those tracks have inspired me to make something similar. I've looked into sno-runners years ago. I wouldn't care to go fast, but I'd want it to climb half-way decent if it could. I would like a sno-runner someday as well, but it'd about have to fall into my lap.
They fucken' climb a hill alright and do 40, that's fast enough if you ride mopeds on a rigid sno-runner frame.
You got it. Its the Millitary Exhaust that is the Hard to find one. Thats what makes the Difference. Also, the Stabalizer Plate keeps it from Crushing after Jumps.
And yes, it is scary. If you give it too much gas and it peels out, it will spin you sideways and throw you off. I never had that problem untill I did the High performance mods, but now youve gotta be slow with the throttle.
40 is more than fast enough. THese things Have no "TRAIL". Trail is what keeps a bike from falling over. Sno Runners dont have it. They are very scary.
rope or old xbox cables work well. but guys this is way too early for winter discussion...
Look if you want to go fast just buy a ski doo.
They were called Sno Rabbits after chrysler sold the remaining stock to another company.
a few on midwest-area craigslist for $350-500. not enough snow or land near me, but looks like a lot of fun!
I have one.
Aaron: I think the aluminum track teeth would be a very bad idea.
I think that would be a really easy way to lose a couple fingers.
This all reminds me. I have to get my snorunner ship shape here soon.
