the 44o will NOT be a good trail sled. but it would be a great ditchbanger. the 440's are just really finiky on jetting. and you tend to have to rebuild them a lot. if i wear you i would buy the iq 44o, pull the 440 engine out, sell the motor and buy a 600 and put it in the iqr chassis. then it would be pretty good for trail and an even better ditch banger!

^ Yeah I've heard they are hard to keep tuned properly. They are great for ditchbangng and well obviously have lots of low end snap.

Do you have any trail conversion parts or are you starting from scratch with a race sled?

Actually the tunability isn't that bad. The engine doesn't have a lot of low end snap, but the low gearing makes it feel as if it does.

I've got my sled set up pretty good, trail converted 440 (still premix), large custom gas tank, revalved shocks(you could even go softer if you wanted to plush out the ride a little)

i have an 06 and its trail converted and its perfect for ditchbanging i dont know how much it cost to trail convert but the suspension in these sleds is perfect for throwing it through anything

yes the sled is fully trail converted

my idea was to get oil injection lighter springs and possibly gear differently
