I could shave some weight with out the w/a kit and a few other things but it hauls ass the way it is and is tons of fun . Not bad for a full 4 stoke motor on a 174 as well, and it so easy to ride as I have a b motion in it as well which help to throw this thing around like a 2 stoke(yes I have one two, meow) so a 998 in a tube chassis would be sick, I bet you could get in well under 600. Powerhouse does make a chassis around the 1049 engine as well just need to run a apex chain case and some other stuff.

    I agree, i've seen one of Powerhouse tube chassis sled with a Nytro 1049 in it a couple year back in Pemberton and it was absolutely radical. Tough tough, could easily pound through mogul trails and curve up the mountain side including doing huge drops. They respond much better then the typical standard design to rider input.
    The sled was all tube with carbon fiber tunneling and paneling, pretty much no snow stuck to it. At the end of the day it probably weighed within 40-50lbs of a 2stroke that ran with it but well over 100 more HP.
    The guy on the tube sled was having way more fun whipping that around then his buddies were, made me envious.
