    hey guys. i just moved to Texas and will no longer be able to snowmobile lol. I had a honda odyssey years ago and had a blast with it. now im looking to build something on a grander scale. i have a complete drivetrain from a 670 skidoo Mach1 and will be fabricating a chassis. this will be my first time building. as the build progresses i will probably ask alot of dumb questions so sorry in advance. if anyone has used a sled drivetrain and has tips i would greatly appreciate it. i do have experience with fabrication. i spent years as a millwright and i am a fair welder. my brother is an engineering student and will be helping with the chassis design.

    Welcome to MBN.

    Start here: How to design and build A-Arm suspension

    Look up a few of my builds - all are CVT drive, most using sled engines.

    One option for a drivetrain is look at a UTV transmission. Most are geared towards a sled type of RPM, have forward, neutral, low and high forward along with a PTO for 4 wheel drive. I’m using an XP1k drivetrain in my current project. They’re more and more plentiful and can take some serious hp.

    I've got a 670 in my pilot, it rips but I need to improve the rear suspension and also add a support bearing onto the driven clutch, I think the added HP was a little too much for the input bearing,
