With the older systems is was half the speed, but the newer ones have different gear reduction. You'll get a sled stuck long before you get the atv with tracks stuck though.

I also have a ZR800CCE with an 1-1/2 paddle track...I'm not talking out of my ass.

2004 V-Force
2012 Brute 750
2011 KFX90
2011 KLX110
1975 KV75
1985 LT230
gone but still loved...2006 Prairie 700, 2008 BF750i, 2009 Teryx 750
I don't list all the mods, but unless I supercharge the V Force, I've run out of things to do to it or bolt on to it.

You'll have lots of power. Under 500cc's is when you start running into problems. With any track system the rule of thumb is whatever the top speed of your quad is on wheels, it will be half of that on tracks. It's for that reason I cant justify spending that kind of cash. After seeing the ice buildup on the suspension and cv boots and the riders covered in snow from poor fender protection, it seems like lot of abuse. For well under $3k you can get a good snowmobile that is purpose built for the weather and would run circles around an atv.
Most people like myself buy these kits because i cant get to the back lakes on my sled. These are purpose built. If you want to go fast, buy a sled but if you like to explore the back country get the tracks. There is a place for the two. As forgetting covered on snow, they make a cacoon suit from kolpin that covers the rider from all the snow and traps the heat from the engine to warm the rider. Very effective but there is nothing like a rush when riding a 130+ hp sled wot!
