:huh: this is from maximum sled forum



This is directly out of Race Gas Mag. vol 1 no. 3 Dec. 2002.
In The Track industry news.
"We know for a fact that it will feature an A-ARM front susp.
and will look radically different.
Also, in the same mag, there is a conversation with D.J. Eckstrom.
He said "wait until you see the "second stage" of the open mod.
We should be really competitive then."

It will probably be some kind of Blade/Polaris Hybrid..........

If that is the case it will kick some serious A**!!!!!!


I still own my 2002 800 X-edge

My FireCat 700sp is just for Racing WSA NorthWoodsChallenge Terrain-X, maybe doing some Sno-X lter in the season..........

I am NOT brand loyal.......I am glad to hear Polaris is going A-arm!!!! :)

I've heard this rumor since last years snow cross finals at Lake Geneva, WI. That is because Polaris rented out the track to do sno-x testing at some witnesses stated that the front end had a A-arm design. I fully expected to see this at the beginning of the season when I was at the Goodwin shop when they were dialing in the clutching for the open mods, but the set up was still trailing arm. The shop stated that it may debut later in the season.

DJ's open sled has been awesome. The sled has been as sharp or sharper than the Rev in the turns. The sled is extremely light and has some very unique drive line changes. I'm not sure how Poo is doing it, but the sled corners extremly flat even with extended front end travel numbers. "04 goals; flat cornering, lightweight, and increased power.
