I always prop the back of my machines up so the track is hanging off the ground,over summer storage I often start them and let the track spin
It keeps the track from taking on the shape from sitting flat,the rubber sometimes cracks at the spots where the track was'bent" around the boggie wheels or sliders.I've got a '74 and the track is good,a'95 like new and 5 1970's Ski Whiz by Massey Ferguson..all tracks look good.I got my '74 at home here,engine was tuned and is back in,just need to hook up fuel lines and cable controls.When I bought it new it was the Boss machine in the neighbourhood 440 TNT sm by Ski Doo and it was quick,took it up to 100mph one night and my helmet went into a speed wobble and almost threw me off the machine..that was the last time I ever let a snowmobile max out

The old Ski-doo's TNT's with the engine right in front of you were fast but didn't handle very good. Neighbor had a 340 TNT after trading in his 440 because it was too fast. The 340 was still fast. We had a 75 340 TNT with the engine in the belly. It had way better handling but wasn't as fast as the older 340 TNT. Different engine but was also way easier to pull than the older one.
