    Re: It's almost here. The electric snowmobile.

    I do believe that these E sleds are the future. A few guys on this site will laugh at that idea. Just like the steam locomotive engineers scoffed at the diesel trains replacing them. They really thought the diesels would never beat them. Maybe the nature nazis won't come down as hard on these machines as they do on the current sleds with the tomato can exhaust stingers.

    Clearly it's the future for most vehicles.

    I'm just not sure how to turbo it or rejet the Carby for higher elevations ...

    Still has a belt. I don't know why they didn't move the motor down into the tunnel. Direct drive. lower center of gravity.

    Our Father, who art on mountain
    Himark be thy name
    may snowfall come
    on mountain peeks and lower valleys
    give us this day blue bird skies
    and show us the way to abundant powder
    and lead us not into avalanche conditions
    but deliver us to eternal powder
    for thine is the powder the slope and the glory
    for ever and ever HIMARK


    I would rather fail trying than fail to try

    I haven't reached my expiry date
    But I definitely exceeded my best before date

    Turbo lag is just foreplay

    It pretty well is direct drive... the motor is linked to the drive axle with a belt/tensioner. It has eliminated the primary clutch, secondary clutch, clutch belt, and jack shaft. For the motor to be inside the track it would have to act as the drive shaft with no gearing options. But now that the fuel tank and single pipe are gone, the sled can be completely different as batteries can be any shape and put in more than one spot.

    Re: It's almost here. The electric snowmobile.

    Agree on range but weight? Any sled fully fueled will be more than 500 pounds. This will be like all other electric stuff for the foreseeable future: good for shorter local rides rather than cross country transit. Battery technology has to change...

    Cool technology. Lots left on the table for naturally aspirated engines tho.
