    "The "Frozen Assets" snodragster is the latest entry in the world of snowmobile speed racing from Performance Concepts in Mokena, Ill. The car gets its power from an alcohol-fueled 670-inch V8, with twin 88-mm. turbos for a little more air. All that power gets routed to studded treads, which have to be sprayed with coolant during runs to keep from overheating -- even though they're typically hauling ass on a frozen lake."

    Steering, what steering? Those little skids in the front just keep the front end from digging in and causing a real mess......
