ok well im looking into getting a pakage from tracks usa and i found 2 different pakages , # is 121-136 with a intense 1.5 inch lug, it comes with everythign its 699$(pakage#5) and the second is a 121-144 with a camoplast 1.25 inch lug for 629$(pakage 14) im just wondering witch one would be better it would be for my 600. the question is witch one would be better for trail/sometimes deep snow/sometimes climbing hill in a pit? would the extra .25 lug help or would a longer track be better? im aiming more towards the 136 since its only a 600 but im just looking for other opinions and ideas, thanks.

I would without question go with the 136. It has good flotation without sacrificing trail ability. The 144 would be good if you did lots of deep snow and you could put a longer lug track on it but, trail riding will suffer somewhat. With the 1.5 inch, your slides will probably wear out a little faster if you ride a lot of hard-pack but thats not a big deal.

It depends, personally if you have a lot of low end torque then i would keep it the same, it will be harder to ride in deeper snow and hill climb with taller gearing. Someone with more experience with clutching should chime in though.

clutching at least and maybe some gearing, depending on what you want. 136 is fine for what you want but the 144 would do well too. Many people trail ride 144's and are very happy with them. I think the 136 with the deeper track, as long as it clears, is the way to go. Just me though.

If it was me, I'd probably go with the 136 also.

The 144" is a Tip up extension, so your trail handling should'nt suffer any.
I put one on My EXT Triple this year, so I guess I'll find out.
I did add one extra set of bogie's at the original 121" rear position.

Either way you'll be happy with Track's USA's set up.

I went with the 136 X 1 3/8 cobra since you will have to notch the Intense because of the coolers.

The clearance issue is at the front of the sled not the rear,those will do you no good.You will have to get smaller drivers if your going to run a taller lug.

doing them rear drop hangers and extending a 121 out to 144 is going to not be a good idea. it will change the geometry to much of the rear skid, you will have to use the rear limiter strap to pull the rear of the rails up. basically taking 2-3" of travel out of the rear skid. and then there still is the possibility of having a sled nose heavy, when you let off the gas the front end will dive and plow.
if you use them drop brackets on the 136 you will need to drop the front mount of the rear skid 1" as well. but now you run into the problem that you really change the attack angle of the track.
personally after messing with them drop brackets and extended tracks i would not do it again. if you are staying 121 then give it a whirl.

clutching will be fine, but gearing i would drop gearing i would drop 1 tooth on top sprocket and go up 1or 2 teeth on the bottom sprocket.

I thaught you were talking avout the back ones.. but ok so.how much are smaller drive sprokets? also wat size would i need to go to? also how are the slp extensions? are tracks usa better ? cause i found 121-136 rail/tunnel for 200$ then i just gotta get a track it would end up the same price so just wondering if im better to go with slp or tracks usa

Tracksusa is better than SLP...and not that they aren't good(SLP) but those who use the Tracksusa stuff say how great the fit and finish is and they also extend the hyfax to the back unlike the SLP ones. If you could find SLP stuff used and save some ching then go for it but if it costs the same...get the kit instead. You would probably need 8T drivers for the Intense and it isn't that much more track to go through the hassle if you ask me.

^ I had SLP rails on my indy 500 and they help up pretty good but Tracks USA rails look to have more support. I also like the extended hyfax idea compared to SLP's extension set up.

If you click on the pic I posted of My conversion, you'll see that the extension's actually "Tip Up" .
This give's you the 121" footprint on hard pack, so your trail handeling won't suffer.
When you get into deeper/softer snow you get the full flotation of the 144" footprint.

You don't need smaller drivers. A 2" lug will fit under an Edge. I've done it.
