With the 2012-13 snowmobile racing season quickly approaching, Polaris has unveiled its 2013 600 IQ Race Sled. According to Polaris, the sled features a new engine package that delivers improved performance across the power range.
The 2013 version of the 600 IQ Race Sled also features a redesigned track, enhanced shock adjustability, improved brakes and other changes designed to increase Polaris racers’ competitive advantage.
New Engine Package
The new Polaris Liberty 600 engine package in the 600 IQ Race Sled features a re-engineered cylinder head and cylinders that result in significantly increased horsepower. Polaris did not provide specific numbers.
“Our new engine package was developed with a focus on improving both snocross and cross-country performance,” says Matt Prusak, race program leader in the Polaris Snowmobile Division. “We’re seeing this engine produce increased horsepower across the entire RPM range. Polaris racers will experience crisper throttle response, improved holeshots, and stronger performance all the way across the powerband. There’s a significant increase in power over the 2012 race sled.”
