hey guys i got a 800 storm lastyear wit the motor gone for a good price i have it ust about back together now but i was wondering if there is anything i can really do to make it decent for jumps i am pretty sure i got a xtra 10 rear skid lined up but i was wondering about the front suspention if it is only the shocks that are differnt and also i was wondering if there was much of a differnce in the weigh of the bodys from teh storm to say a xlt or something simmilar


thanks matt

I'll be the first to say it. storms arent light. They are actually really heavy compared to other sleds but they have enough power to compensate. xtra 10 rear will help, and no you need control arms, steering rods and shocks for the front to switch it. Storms are meant to go really fast on flat ground and they are good at it. with jumping you will need to be careful because the storm is very noseheavy and will drop right down on you when you tap the brake when ur airborn. Don't forget you need to remount the holes for the rear suspension, just do a forum search and you'll find pics.

Good luck, let me know how it turns out.

They are definetly heavy and they dont land softly that's for sure. I keep mine on the ground... going fast in a strait line...

its not really that heavy compaired to sleds of the same hp rating. specialy since the new sleds have years and years of new tech into them and are only 20 lbs if that lighter.

I am very agressively looking for an xtra 10 and I am planning on longtracking it out to 144, I have a line on an xtra 10, just trying to find a track and saving up the $$$ for the tracksusa rail extensions. of course this is going to be a summer project.

Pance is only 15 whats YOUR excuse?? You see unlike YOU Pance is a pretty bright kid with a future, I doubt when he's 24 he'll be sitting around sucking off of the Gov't welfare tit like you are!! I for one am getting real tired of half my paycheck going to taxes to feed you and your family, its kinda funny how your too "disabled" to get a job, but your not to "disabled" to sit on a computer, a snowmobile, or an "imaginary" 4 wheeler!! I also noticed in your last "rude pm" thread that you failed to mention that you've been sending threatning pm's to a 15 year old kid (Pance), or how many pm's you've sent me wanting to set up a fight that you wouldn't show up to in the first place!! You know all of your little "oh poor catsrule" threads and posts are getting real old real quick!!!! Your like a little pimple on the ass of civilization (irratating and won't go away)!! So seeing how theres no snow and i have nothing else to do I'm going to make it my personnal crusade to expose you and ALL your BS!! So starting today everyone is going to know that you've been acting real "mature" and sending threatning pm's to a 15 year old forum member!! But I guess thats just another class act out of you isn't it?? Even though the mods might not be willing to do anything about you and your antics I WILL and I'm sure there are plenty of MEN on here who won't take real kindly to you threating kids!!!
