hey guys i was wondering what it would take to make an 02 xcsp 500 into a race sled(no engine mods) just getting the suspension ready and the studs, skis, bars, just ext. stuff. any info would be great.
cross country, the rough is probably going to put a beating on it but im looking to put different shocks on it, the class specifies that i run a <500 so thats what i plan on doing and some other minor stuff to make the transition
re valve ur shocks for style, brace the crap out of that sled. I am with powersledder on the pro-x idea. u could throw that 500 in ur pro-x but it would be kind of a messy job. Good luck on your project
^^U know u could just get an Regular pro-x chassis and find a 500 for it. u might be able to find an 01 to 02 which were the early pro x's for a good price but those are sleds that I do not see often besides Slednecks 4 but just keep your eyes open for a good deal
thanks sledcrusher but first i need to find a proxr chassis and then i can make the transition but i think i can make due with the edge itll do all right in the end, cross country is just really rough trail riding unlike snowcross and thats how i like it
good idea xxxxx... but im already racing the prox and it would be hard to put a 500 liquid into a 440 fan chassis, i already ran it by my dad and he said that it wouldnt turn out too well just because of the size difference. but ill keep my eyes open for a prox
what size track are you going to run? i may have some woody double backers if interested,
Double backers are backers that have 2 holes in them for 2 studs to side by side the picture explains it self better
I wanted to race XC. Will be doing that next year hopefully. I raced one amateur sno-x race and was extremely sad when it ended. Would like to be out on the track until my arms cant hold the bars anymore.
For the fan chassis, all you'd need is a heat exchanger, a hole saw, some hoses, and some rivets. Your sled has everything you need for parts really.
Then some added bracing and some stiffer valving then your golden!
Double backer studs are where its at. Much harder to get a pull through. It doesnt seem like the traction would be as high though. I could be entirely and absolutely wrong about that part, but that's just what it seems like in my head.
