Nice sled... I don't think you will beat the assault they are fast in a straight line, unless you spend some coin on clutching. On trail i love the S IMO best sled out there for my type of riding. congrats

ive got North Star clutching on the assault and just ordered the kit for the pro s the assault with ricks kit is just a beast very hard to beat I’m hoping the kit will do the same for the pro s I don’t think I would even want a sled unless it has ricks clutching makes huge difference

Doubt it.

My '19 Assault 800, out of the box, walks away from my '16 Pro-S 800 with Rick's setup. Both machines 23:40 gears, Cobra 1.3 tracks, two studs per bar.

They're both freaking awesome, but the assault seems to have less rolling resistance, better weight transfer and more traction.

That said, on flat tight twisty trails (or janked tight twisty trails) ... the Pro-S rails harder and carries more speed through the apex of a corner. I like 'em both. Horses for courses etc.

I had 8250 on my last one, and they were still good. 3200 on the current Pro-S and they show virtually no wear.

Mine were getting sloppy at 5K. I changed them at 6K and it made a big difference.

Great sled, enjoy! Don't expect it to ever come close to the Assault in a drag race, but that isn't the goal of the chassis....not that it is for the Assault but it is a nice side effect.
