I'm not saying Rick doesn't know how to clutch a sled...  But no serious race team will put a "kit" in a sled and run it as is. No serious race team will buy off the shelf parts that they can sou

Yup remember that one also.  Worked on sleds for over 40 years.  People bring him sleds from across the nation and Canada just to work on them. Fixes sleds still under warranty that 4 other dealers co

Im back!   Rick is a full blown retard, and a habitual liar and bullshitter.

Not as fast as Iceman F7 on the pond 

I know someone that went to high school with iceman and battle storm. They have both had fingers pointed at each other for spray and lower end work. One them either has or has someone with a track dyno they have significant amount of time on. Both of them have built some really fast sleds.

But no serious race team will put a "kit" in a sled and run it as is. No serious race team will buy off the shelf parts that they can source themselves from someone like Rick. And I have YET to ever see a NSP sticker or ricks magical helix in any snocross sled. I can tell you that the clutches change non stop - thats why the pros use two sleds in practice, or you'll see the mechanics changing complete clutches out after laps have been rode. 

So many variances and variables that one kit across the board will never work in any snowmobile regardless of XC,SX, drag racing or even trail riding. if anything the kit will be a base line at best for tuning. 

I have ran stickers on my stuff for products I didn't use because I was paid to. I had a oil deal with a company years ago , and would literally fill their containers with rotella because it worked better.

I'm sure, Iceman does hold whatever world record.  You don't just luck into that

He posts occasionally on the ACTR group, mostly selling Amsoil.

I talked to Rick on the phone once years ago when I first got my 2015 Rush and he was friendly and helpful.

But his rants are painful to read. The one he claimed Polaris calls him for info was fucking ridiculous. and Cutting holes in Ice for testing because thats the proper way was a good one too.  :lol: Now he bashes Poo left and right. Strange Guy.

Most of the stock and improved stock records were set in 2018 or earlier.  Was neat in its day but todays sleds are not setup for speed runs.  By time you slam them down which I'm not sure you can in stock class and are limited with stock engine calibration with all the safe guards to protect a motor just not worth it or completive

Not only that but nobody makes a 440,500,700,900 or 1000 cc sled anymore so those records could be written in stone now.I guess the 650's and 850's would be in 700 and 900 but leaving 50cc on the table,,,that's more than 5 hp down,,,on the pond.

You would Have to buy a used one and put a ton of money into, to try and beat those records
