When people say 36" or 42" stance I assume there measuring ball joint to ball joint on the front end?


Everyone measures differently but as most measurements are ctc I go from the ctc on each spindle as my width-39" ctc

I'd need to cut my arms down another inch or more per side for a number closer to 36" ctc

Here's what I've done to sled. Added Tom's Emo RR to sled, had to upgrade some of the skid to T motion, as mine had the sc5 skid. Put in a 2 wheel kit while I was at it. Put on a can for some weight loss, but mostly for that braaap'y noise..lol. put on a DJ clutch kit, and just picked up an RSI vented bag which I will mount for Google's. Upgraded my heating elements, that's a comfort thing....

Glad the running board cut outs work for you. Let us know how the centering works I was thinking about doing that on my 36" stance sled this week. My 38" I run on Narrow

Centering the ski was a better mod than offset skinny , its still easier to carve and get on edge but it doesn't feel as awkward on the trail or hard snow that you can get your skis to bite into. It only makes sense if you step back 5 feet and look at the geometry of everything. In not sure why skidoo wouldn't do this stock. I also believe my rubber ski insulators will last longer because it was always the heavy side blowing out of them
