In every case, do ice scratchers really work?
Long track riders especially should consider using ice scratchers. The longer slides heat up much faster and can melt away quicker than short track sleds, even when there is a decent amount of snow. Be sure and use the scratchers in the mornings especially because the snow is more frozen and hard from the night before.
At the least, where do you put ice scratchers?
On another note, how do I stop my snowmobile from overheating?
In case there is mild overheating while riding, you can try and add an extra fan and radiator on the back side of the motor sled, and they would keep the temperature level in case you have to ride it for a long time. That is also a good remedy if you use it when the outside temperature is warmer than the usual.

Snowmobile coolant flows within your sled's system to keep the engine at the appropriate temperature when riding. These sleds are known as liquid-cooled snowmobiles. Some sleds are fan-cooled, which means fans redirect cool air to the engine to keep it from overheating.
Simply put, a liquid cooled machine will be noticeably more powerful than a comparable sized engine that is fan cooled. The liquid cooling allows them to run the engines with a hotter ignition since they have much better cooling ability. That means horsepower and performance.
It is well worth it to buy the higher dollar scratchers. The average expected value of the $20 tickets is almost 80%. The average expected value of the $5 tickets is about 65%. That means if you spend $100 on $20 tickets, you're expected to win $80.
But as a rough guideline, the higher the ticket price, the more likely you are to win some money and the higher the jackpot, the less likely you are to win any money. So, in general, your best odds are buying the most expensive ticket with the smallest prize.
According to Mark Gallina, liquid cooling more “efficiently distributes heat over more convection surface area (radiator) than pure conduction, allowing for reduced fan speeds (better acoustics) or higher total power.” In other words, it's more efficient, and often quieter.
