The one guy who gave their Rupp snowmobiles to me and he sent me some pics from my e-mail. The old Rupp snowmobile race. These photos are from early 1970's Rupp Snowmobile Race at Walworth County Fair in Elkhorn, WI and there was 14 rupp snowmobile in this racing plus other model of snowmobile like ski doo, polaris, etc... So they were racing each other. One guy got first place in this race was rupp, he had 1972 Rupp Nitro 650.
I never knew it was done on plain old dirt. See quite a few pictures where it's supposed to be snow and has turned to mud, but on a horse track with no snow at all??? Looks like fun!
yep, a horse track with no snow. This was in September. Should be fun! Maybe we should go on horse track and race! But it will wear the Rupp's Sled out faster. Also get close to 100% traction. woo hoo!

pathfinder: Anyone have a source for the correct track clips for the 72-73 Nitro tracks? Also what type of clip tool works, I've tried several and they all don't get the clip tight enough! Thanks

BeatUpRupp: Just found a '72 Nitro 340 hanging out near a relative's house. They claim it has an "experimental" engine in it and it was very fast. Even though it has sat outside for 20 years they won't sell it!!

lemans1955: Lets get some pics of that thing, maybe if it really is something special some cash will persuade them. Always works for me.

snosnake: Hey ruppgreenhorn I would say your just going to have to check it out. Thats a fix you can not do over the internet. Just start with the easy things first like the tank pick-up.
