Ya, they are like motorcycles, so even though its got a smaller engine still very fast, and could probably beat any car in a race. Even rentals, rentals are usually newer since they buy new ones every couple years, and they will easily be able to do 100+. As for jumping them unless you want to pay the rental place a bunch of money to fix them(since they will overcharge) I wouldn't beat on them to hard.

They are fast. Most medium sized ones can do almost 100.

When I was 12 the ski patrol dragged me down a mountain on a stretcher with a snowmobile; does that count?

Wow, that's super fast. I'm guessing they have like mini windshields?

I love it, but it can get expensive, i mean i was in the UP one time, and i blew both my shocks and the torch are, and it cost me about 400 dollars to get the shocks, but it really fun, i would recommend it any day,

yea my dads, 600CC which is average could max out his speedometer which was at 100 and he had more room left this the throttle, so we clocked it once and it was going 120

my uncle has a 800CC and those things are Fing fast,

He's majorly protective over them...I wish he'd just *give* me one. Lol. He says all 47 of them range from $20,000 to $600. Geeeesh, id even take the $600 one and fix it myself!

how does a teacher afford that many snowmobiles?? teachers hardly make enough money to support a family by them selves let alone 47 snowmobiles.

maybe he sells drugs on the side

HAHA. I really have no idea. He's on his second year teaching here and all he's done all his life is teach. His wife is a Kindergarten teacher too. They dont have kids, but that shouldn't affect it too much. He's a very odd fella. Or maybe he robbed a bank?
