They E drive was switched over to pre-flat spotted rollers. I thought it was in 2016 but maybe it was 2017. They have a 6 sided hex that the weight slides on instead of a roller. You can install them in the older E drives but if your rollers are flat spotted then that’s what you have already. Just replace them before they wear through.

The edrive rollers have not proven worthy, every year i need a new set.

The difference on the 900 slidershoe & 900turbo clutch is not the primary rollers, (which both have) but this part which i know nothing about as for it's purpose?

It looks like a part that can be easy swapped if one wants?

The Expedition has new style gearbox and lower ratios then Skandic 900.
Which doesn't make sense if Skandic is primarily a work machine.

Tundra 300 it's only the new models Gen4 expedition with the new chain/gearbox that has the lower gearing, all the skandics & the expy SWT are still on the rev xu chassis with the older transmission, within a few years we should see the skandics on a gen4, (I hope?) then we'll get that lower gearing as will.

Thats right, i'm expecting BRP to use the G4 trans in the Skandic line up in the next few years.
At least if it proves to be durable, i'm sure the 900Turbo will put it to the test with a 20" track.

That would be great if they can but I can't see that happening

Hope I'm wrong but my fear is the Skandics go away and Doo decides the Expy's are their workhorse's.....
Yup, i hope your wrong too...but like you i also think the new lineup WT/SWTs well be the in the gen 4 expedition chassis

In the end will probably come down to sales... in this neck of the woods expeditions out sell the skandic line-up probably 20/1.. I can see where the skandics are better when u get in the thick stuff (less to hook up) but the expys also have advantages I would think..
