Are fan-cooled sleds good?
The fan-cooled snowmobiles have an advantage because they do not need snow thrown on them for cooling. A fan blows the cool-air over the engine and passively cools it. Fan cooled snowmobile is going to perform vastly better than the liquid-cooled one in less snow and a little bit warmer climate.
