Oh im liking this idea. I have always liked those old standard body sleds. Theres just something about them. Someday its either going to be a 2001 Edge X or 98 XC 700. Those are my favorite sleds of all time.
Now if i could get a 98 XC 700 body with the edge ride and handling, no doubt buyer here.
you could put the suspension off an edge on Gen II. YOu oculdn't do all the edge "updates" cause that would require changing the way the sled is(width, length, etc.) and it would prolly be different enough to bother you. My vote is still an XLT in an EDGE Chassis I think that would kick MAJOR ass. My opinion anyway.
erick, how are you going to incorporate the multi angle tunnel of the edge into your gen II?? Or is this not necessary for it to operate to it's fullest potential? Sounds like an upgrade such as that would be extremely sweet!! Fabricating stuff is cool so now you've got the gears spinning in my head with a new idea...
Win if you can...
Loose if you must...
But NEVER stop trying!
Hmm, i like this idea! Do you think an Edge rear skid will fit into the older "flying wedgie" style sleds with the Xtra-10 removed??? Someone should measure them out; i wonder if it is a direct bolt on...?
How much do you want to spend? If money is no object, get your wedge chassis Polaris, throw in a M-10 rear suspension and a BLT long travel front suspension with 10" of true travel, also by FAST inc. and there you go. Done deal.
The M10 with the optional Mvalve shock kit is a rising rate suspension. You also have your choice of 7 different shock packages (fox,ohlins,ryde fx...). Plus the sucker is made to bolt into the wedge chassis with the Polaris mounting hardware. The edge suspension is probably better for ditch banging like you said, but if you want to ditch bang, then get a ditch bangin sled. Not the old wedgester. She was great in her day, but you cant beat technology!
