[!]When's Polaris gonna step up to the plate and do something radical like the other manufactuers have done? Seat looks like something off the pwc. Nice Ski-doo yellow and copper looking AC colours. Should've stayed with the blue and red model colours. Just my opinion.[V]
First the Pro X is a DIFFERENT chassis, NOT an edge chassis the only thing that is the same is the hood/bellypan.
Second I don't think that Polaris should bother going to a-arms. The trailing arm IFS suspension has worked for a long time (I think it was introduced in 86 maybe earlier) so obviously it is a tried and tested and it has results that people are happy with. The trailing arm suspension has advantages over the a-arm suspension just like the a-arms have advantages over the trailing arm one. The biggest advantage is the distribution of impact when you hit a drift that sends the energy not only to the bulkhead but also further back in the frame resulting in needing less reinforcement on the bulkhead that would weigh more. I have read this in a magazine article and that is what I remember. I will try to find that article later.
