I want to lift the rear end of my Vmax to provide a little more room for the heat exchangers, and possibly give it a little more of an aggresive stance. Any ideas on adding that lift? Or photos of your mod to lift it? Would be greatly appreciated...

You would have to get some lift brackets to move your suspension rear mounting holes down, raising the rear up, but remember, you don't gain travel. Or they are called suspension drop brackets.

Get some 3" x 3" angle aluminium, and some flat plate, measure and rivit, or bolt to tunnel just under where the stock rear holes are, and drill out the bottom front holes on the tunnel where the fron of the skid mounts. Done deal, thats what I did.

Did it to mine. slp makes ones for gen 2 sleds for 20 bucks. im sure it could work for you. but they also have universal ones made too. make sure you drop the front too. almost as far as the back.

Totally different ballgame on that Yammi....you need to talk to Bruce @ CB Performance Parts(sponser here) and he has a set of brackets made for the Pro-Actions sleds. They work but can be tricky because Yammi had their head somewhere it shouldn't have been when they designed that suspension and with the three mounting points it screws things up. Good luck and as stated, you won't gain anything and the sled may handle worse.

On the XC there was a hole in the front bracket, but not through the tunnel. Just had to drill out the hole thru the tunnel and remount the front. Dont know if its the same on the VMax. Friend raised his up just in the rear and chewed up brand new sliders in 15 miles.

The front you just drill holes under the original holes. Almost as much as the back bolt. Just measure and drill.

One thing I noticed is the front suspension lifts up a bit too by doing this.

on my edge the already have the brackets to raise the back end. it made a huge difference on the jumps and racing so much more torque and in the deep snow i couldn't get stuck! good choice to do it! but i did it on my 440 Indy sport and i just made my own brackets!
