If you follow WBJ1's "Over-Kill-O-Wattage" LED Light philosophy, you'll need either a higher output alternator or a second alternator....

Are you sure that 543 will make it pulling a 50kw generator? Might have to send the Kt-4 out with the Sqwrl to help pull it! 😉

Gathering of old grousers on the 4th of July? Challenge accepted by the Sqwrl (He is a professional driver so pinks should be no problem). The deeper and wetter the better since the Kt-4 up for the challenge has some tricks up her sleeve! If by some chance the Sqwrl fails am I allowed to be in the essay contest?

adding a extra alternator and battery would work for everyone else, but not for the PP,

I will be needing the extra lighting...

cuz, at the steep and deep competition, know for a fact, the power paddled 543 will win and everyone else will want to keep trying and that will go very late into night and more than likely into the early morning hours, and will only come to an end, when they run out of GAS, I just want to make sure they have a very well lit hill so there will be NO EXCUSES.

Game Over...






PS. KT4, best start working on your essay, topic " what went wrong"

I'm surprised the Snow Trac mafia are not merely under-represented, but completely without representation.

I thought maybe it was because they were concerned about having to contend with deep snow, and/or high elevation. (Both of which might put them at a significant disadvantage.)

But I did some research and, believe it or not, the site of the Clowder, Big Powderhorn Mountain in Michigan, gets almost as much annual snowfall as Sun Valley!

Big Powderhorn:
  • Projected Opening Projected Closing12/15/2019 04/01/2020
  • Days Open Last Year
    100
  • Projected Days Open
    108
  • Years Open
    55
  • Average Snowfall
    214"

Sun Valley:
  • Projected Opening Projected Closing11/28/2019 04/19/2020
  • Days Open Last Year
    149
  • Projected Days Open
    137
  • Years Open
    83
  • Average Snowfall
    220"

In terms of elevation, Big Powderhorn's base is 1,200', and the Summit is 1,800', with a vertical drop of only 600'. Sun Valley on the other hand has a base elevation of 5,750', a Summit of 9,150, and a vertical drop of 3,400.

So maybe it's the elevation and the topography that's keeping the Snow Trac mafia back home; safe and sound in their warm garages?

1949 Tucker 323, Sophie, is getting a Transdapt/Holley Sniper EFI in preparation for Sun Valley. Yes PP, all the original parts are safely stored away.

no worries, BFT, the "Bear", the snow track are coming! the key chains will be in Sun Valley, warm and safe in the cabs of tucker snow cats

ah, I will put the Tesla battery in the tucker snow cat trailer...

or how about a LS engine

or a rousch 302 with super charger,

or just maybe just put the 340-six pack, back in, and call it good

nice work VB, in getting your 423 ready to challenge the back country of the Sawtooths of Idaho, do take a few minutes and look at the pontoons and rollers

time to get your machine in the shop/garage and give it, a good once over and maybe a couple times on the snow before the 'snow cat serenade'

so pleased with the great response and who is coming, truly a gathering of the faithful snow catters, great people...thank you

fyi, rumor has it, our first Snow Tracker has made reservations
