yes, I certainly feel the Powder Pros are worth the money. I'm going to ask Dan at the Outdoor Shop and maybe he can work up a great discount for HCS members B)Originally posted by Pantera01355@Jan 6 2003, 09:09 AM
So do you think that the Powder Pro are worth the money if most of your riding is on gromed trails with only a little bit of powder riding?
Yes, these skis are at their best on a loose broken surface, like you would have on a sno-cross track or a pounded trail on a saturday afternoon. They are just the ticket for the Firecats.Originally posted by ToddUF7@Jan 6 2003, 09:14 AM
Rob, great report! Hey, you are right in line with the TEAM ARCTIC sno-cross racers w/ the SLP skis. I noticed at the
Winnepeg snocross race Tucker Hibbert, T.J. Gulla, and Kent Ipsen all had the SLP Powder Pros on there race sleds.
Yes, the Powder Pros will be on my F7 from now on. They don't raise the spindle height.. The ski mounting bolt actually recesses into the ski sides.. A little hard to imagine before seeing it. You have to mount the saddle to the spindle before mounting the ski bottom to the saddle. I may try letting the limiter straps back out, but I'm pretty sure that would return me to wheelie time in a big way.Originally posted by Roy T@Jan 6 2003, 11:20 AM
So Rob, it sounds like we can safely assume you're going to be running the SLP Powder skis then?! Just a thought for you -- it looks like the SLP Powder ski has a pretty deep keel that might actually raise the front of the sled a bit if the spindle mounting bolt height is respectively raised as well??? If this is indeed the case (I'm sure you'll take some measurments, if you haven't already!) that might be all the more reason for you to consider lengthening your skid limiter straps to the longtest settings. Let me/us know what you think about that idea, and if you try it.
And both SLP skis DID get rid of the minor nervous darting/tracking issues??? I could certainly notice it with the stock skis, even with the proper 1/4" - 3/8" toe-out -- reminded me of my last two XCs before I installed the Tru-Track runners and Sure-Steer carbides! -- Roy
Mine is a snopro and cam in the longest hole. I raised it one hole, so I'am using the middle hole now. I don't think it is necessary to go any shorter than that. And if you do, you are sacrificing some rear arm travel unless you install spacers in the IFS shocks.Originally posted by cat716@Jan 6 2003, 11:50 AM
$400.00 all added up the way I figure it - ouch! I have always loved the way my past cat have turned - a bit disappointed to have to spend money to make it better but if this would fix it I'll have to get a set.
Rob, How much did you shorten your limiter strap? Did you make a new hole? Thanks
