Theres something else? ;)
Sky Ski & ride dirt bikes year round, snow ski in the winter.

Oh, and I have an RC MC X-Star but I'm not sure I'd call it a hobby. More like chasin the ducks & geese around the lake. :cool:

Winter?

Clean up the house, garage, and do all the projects I ignore in the summer because it's short and we have to be BOATIN' !!!!

Wait, there must be time for something else??????

The summer is short enough here to avoid taking up golf. It would be a shame to waste a perfectly good boating day stuck out on the golf course!

Traxxas for me thus far.

Right now I just have a Stampede. It is brushless and will do close to 50mph on 10 GP3300's. So it's plenty good for me. I don't race, just run around the yard and local dirt field. It's also great exercise for the dog. She loves to chase the thing.
I have thought about picking up a T4, but not sure.

We go snowmobiling up in the U.P. and hayward area. I have been ridin' since the mid 70's. Now that my little one is getting to be big enough, I am going to get her, her own. I am looking for a kitty cat like I rode when I was a kid. Never really got over the thrill.
Back when we first started ridin', we were thrilled to get them up to 50mph. Now-a-days, my secondary clutch doesn't even engage until then. We're pushing 105mph in 2000' on a stock sled before we start modifying them. And we aren't all into just racing them. All of us out trail riding is awesome too. Head out on a 100 mile cruise. If you ever get a chance, take it. There are tons of places up there that rent them.

I really got out of Batt. op. Once I stepped into Nitro, I never looked back, my batt. ops just sit and collect dust, got a few oldies too, USA1, Samarui, a few RC10's, Grasshopper, Hornet, and I think I may still have some road cars. Forget all the model numbers.
The only TRUCK I have now is the SAVAGE, and I have a body I painted that matchs my tow rig identically. I am workin on building trailer to hook to it and tow the rc boats. I wish I could find a MC rc boat. No luck.
I am looking to see that associated brings to the table in the next year, probably get what they come up with. I am going to get back into rc boats. A good winter build.

It's the 2' long one. Yea, I bought it. It looks like it might be a bit different than the one Milk has. Twin props & rudders in back. Chrome tower. Rudder position adjustment further back. 6 knobs holding the deck down on the hull.

Sorry, you posted that picture already. I didn't pay attention to the username before... :o

Nice! It is 19.2V or something like that, isn't it?

I had a SN twin engine, but it was not very fast and to turn one engine would go into reverse while the other continued forward. I ended up giving it to mynephew.

I would love to try out the one you have. I may have to make a trip to Wally World for myself!

I'm not sure what the voltage is on the battery but will check it out later. And I'll watch our Wally World for more of them.
It's a single engine & battery, but has 2 props & 2 rudders.

Starting to snow ski as an adult is very difficult. The problem is that you already know about fear and pain. It definately is easier the younger you start. I started my son and daughter on the ski's when they turned 4 years old, now that they are 9 & 11, they both out ski me and the wife.

For me that is the greatest thrill there is. And for any of you in Utah, I love the snow there :headbang: . Whistler,B.C. was great but the week I spent in Park City back in March was BETTER!!!!! ALTA rocks too!! Going back next year to hit the ones we missed this year. Also spent a week in Jackson Hole with the powder mags, which was awsome :D but Utah still rules in my book. Only one place to ski in Tennessee, but beats nothing. N.C. has some good places within 2 hrs or less. Snowshoe,W.V. is great also. Man LET IT SNOW!!

erkoehler
07-25-2005, 12:19 PM
What is the reason for not wanting efi? I have EFI on both of my sleds, and LOVE it. Once you have it, you will never want to go back. Easier starts, 1-2 pulls no matter how cold. Last season, it was -27 when we went out to start the sleds in the morning, two pulls later my F7 was idling as smooth as can be. All my buddies have XC 700's, and they were standing out there for the next 10 minutes messing with the choke and feathering the throttle to keep them going.

The throttle pull is alos MUCH easier. Your thumb will thank you for the change.

If you are looking for a dealer with leftovers, let me know I think mine still has a few.

no, we either go to northern wi or soutern wi. Usually when lower MI gets snow so does Whitewater, WI. My buddies have house there, so it makes it easy, and only takes 1 hour 30 minutes to get there. Otherwise, my family has a resort in Northern WI that we also frequent.

Modifications, is the number one answer in one word. With efi you can not do them. You are limited to clutch and track changes, thats it. I am not a big fan of leave it alone. I have a friend that blew up his F7efi a few times with the top tuners in the industry on his side attempting to tune it right, with catastrophic results. The systems are sooo finiky. I like the ease of starts and the warm ups of the efi, but I have never had to pull any of our carbs more than three times even in -25. So that I am not sold on. It's the, "can I leave it stock and be happy with it."
Throttle pull I did not notice, but I have not riden one for a long period of time, I will have to consider than when we ride for 8 hours straight, thumb fatigue sucks.

I have two sleds, both of which I love to ride and are plenty fast/aggressive. I leave the F7 in my garage up there then it is ready whenever I am up there. I keep the ZL in IL during the winter that way we can take the short trips to Southern WI/Northern IL.

As far as racing, just the quick 100+ mph run across the lake.

I am going to ask my buddy when it is this year. It is an unbelievable event, if you are into crowds and spectacular ice racing.
A friend of mine makes a 1/4 mile track in front of his house almost every day. Maintains it like it is an official track. So we spend alot of time on it. But love the trails too.


Don't really frequent Hayward, it is about 1 1/2 hours past where I go. I am in the Eagle River/St. Germain area.

SNOWBOARDING is definetely my passion in life. Snowmoboarding is even better 'cuz then I can get to some sick backcountry places without having to hike all the way in. Hopefully soon to be the pround owner of either a Polaris RMK 700, or an Arctic Cat M7 with a 144" or there abouts track. Used to have a snowmobile but when the 'rents sold the place we had it at, they sold the machine aswell.

As far as hobbies/part time jobs I referee College and High School Basketball. I used to play golf quite a bit but I don't have the time to practice as much as I need to to be able to play at the level that I have grown accustomed to, so I don't play much anymore.

I used to golf every weekend. Sort of got bored with it. It did "alright" on the course, never did good, maybe thats why I slowed. Now I play in a friendly tournament about once or twice a year with a bunch of the guys, but not really a hobby for me anymore.

The wienie roast is one event you should think about attending. Last year there was a guy who ran 150mph in the 1/4 mile. Like a rocket. Keep in touch if you want to check it out with us. We talked a few more buddies into getting sleds over the summer. So now we will head up with anywhere between 2 and 30 sleds on any given trip. Should be pretty cool.

I do nasty things... NOT! My other hobbies are, and not in this order...cooking, snow skiing, walking, and swimming. I also enjoy tasting wine and lets not forget enjoying tossing a few odds and ends back on the weekends...weekdays too sometimes. Oooh...do I have a problem? :dance:

Home repair on rentals, Rent what, houses? Where? Snowmobiling areas perhaps?
Where do you sled and what do you ride?

Looks cool. Ever had it down the 1/4 mile? I know its not a 1/4 mile car, but I was wondering what it does?

This winter I will probably just sit around and look at the swimsuit thread.
