Wasnt that the point of the XRS? To have basically race ready suspension. When people start complaining about things being too stiff thats how the x package ended being as soft as it is.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!rocketman said:In SnowGoers Top-Level Shootout , they stated the Polaris Dragon was steady and stable when slammed through the 1 to 3 foot 1-mile section of test trail. They even sat through some bumps. The Dragons headlight beam was steady and the sled stayed on course. This reduced fatigue and kept them in better control compared to the Ski-Doo or Yamaha. The X-RS headlight bobbed up, down, back and forth as the sled swayed and hunted across trail. This instability robbed confidence from the driver. A major element that set apart the Dragon from the MXZX-RS was the fact we could sit as we pounded through the rough; we had no choice but to stand on the Ski-Doo or we'd have ended up in the woods with a broken $11,000 snowmobile. Without a doubt, the Dragon has THE suspension package for AGGRESSIVE, rough-trail riding. Sounds like they really really liked the Dragon in the rough. Isn't the rough were the X-RS should shine? Did Doo miss the mark by putting the 440 snow-cross type suspension under the X-RS? Did Doo over spring the X-RS for the rough trail crowd to satisfy the ditch jumper ect...crowd?
yes i agree. somebody on doo talk last year said they were at a ski doo show last year and were talking to one of the reps. the rep said that tug hill was one of the main places they were testing and designing the sled for. the rep also said there was actually talk about calling the xrs the tug hill special.hondolane said:Head to TUG HILL, NY on a Saturday afternoon! Nuff Said... XR-S just so you can sit on the bar stool at night!
AMEN. Tug Hill gets so beat up on ANY saturday afternoon up there especially right about 3:00 -4:00 PM. This is when we love to ride as most pople resort to sitting in the bar and drinking when trails get beat. I doubt Doo tests on Tug Hill as I have been going for over twenty years now and the only testing I have seen was by Redline. And that was funny because they were testing in the fields and blew a motor up so when they went back to trail riding the Redline was being towed by another one, LOL....hondolane said:Head to TUG HILL, NY on a Saturday afternoon!
