I found out some true info on the new AVENGER today. I talked to someone down at ODG this morning to ask some questions about my machine and some parts it needs and we got talking about it and it is definatly a 25 HP kohler, brand new tranny- totally different to be more like a car tranny- this is a fact!!! and the steering is now make like a snowmobile (handlebars with the brake on one and throttle on the other) Yes, the wheeles are elevated on the front and back to eliminate some of the bearing problems and to turn easier but still give 8x8 drive capabilities and have all 8 wheeles driving. They still have a couple things to work out, tracks are one of them. They are trying to make tracks work with the rawhides but havn't got it finished yet. They should be available with the AVENGER within 6 months or so. I am going to try to test one out at the end of FEB when I go up to the cottage again. I found a dealer up there thatI can deal with directly now and he has the equipment to do everything. He will have the Avenger in next week and then I can test it. Also, the Cottage Life Show in TOronto is at the beginning of March, and the ARGO is always there. I have to go to the show anyways as Dad has an exhibit in there, so I will take tons of pictures of everything, from every angle etc.
