A 17 to a 19 has much improved handling... It was night and day from my 18 to the 19. Once the sled is set up they turn great. I think the lowered spring setup made a huge difference.

This is the first 1" RipSaw that we have had on any of our sleds.
I have had a few other turbos that we put 144" Hacksaw's under them.
Personally, I believe that the hacksaw is a better track. However, neither one is designed to go boondocking with.
This sled was built/designed to be trail ridden. I am studded fairly heavy. It does everything that I want it to do.

If I were buying a sled, i would be opting for it. Conditions can change rapidly and dramatically, not having to stop to optimize ride quality sounds like a no-brainer to me.

I also have not heard much in the way of problems.
I wonder if there will be a way to update the 19's to have independent control like the 2020's? Having the IAC on my SRX has been awesome just wish I could control the rear separate from the front. If I had it to do over I would definitely opt for the IAC again. 2000 trouble free miles so far.

I swapped my '17 to a 1.5" track. If you don't care about top end, it really makes quite a difference on/off trail- Noticeably more traction from buddies with 1.25. (I have an 1100 Turbo with a 1" track and its useless even on hardpack- if we line up 5 sleds in the snow, it's gonna be in last place). ***Note- I ride in the UP exclusively so our conditions rance from hard pack to loose snow.
