Well, that sounds pretty promising!!Bodacious said:I have 1200 miles on mine since relocating. No problems. As for the rear hyfax square edge, I've been cutting the back edge to 60 degrees for years. I highly recommend to do this on your sleds that have reverse, it's much kinder to your track clips.
I'll have to do that to mine, I think.Bodacious said:I have 1200 miles on mine since relocating. No problems.

When I change hyfax, I cut the rear of the hyfax at an angle. This will keep the track clips from "slapping" when departing the hyfax. Sounds like your clips are doing this hyfax mod on their own. Perhps the noise will reduce as well, over timesleddude5 said:This is noisy .............. rear of the hyfax is being chamfered, eh. .
Do you know the part number for the stiffer spring? I wonder if your original spring is stiffer then mine since I have a NON-X. Is the original spring a dual or single rate? Want to sell your original spring?Bodacious said:JUst this, I've had a very positive result with the changes, I also added a stiffer center spring, which makes the sled feel much better to me. I will not change back to the OEM set-up. All I can say try it you may love it, I sure some will find fault in it. If you move it and don't like it, 20 minutes and you can have your "DEAD FLAT ON THE SKIS RENEGADE" back to the original set-up. DOO it or don't, it's your choice, I just don't know what else to say.
Yes, you have to drill the new hole but the reinforcement bracket on the inside already has the hole. There is a picture of this in another thread somewhere. By theory lowering the front of the skid increased the attack angle of the track and therefore would be worse for deep snow. This is the single reason I have not done this yet.. On the otherhand making this adjustment will give your sled more weight transfer which should improve the feel of the sled in deep snow.newf001 said:Didn't you have to drill a new hole for the bolt? Also, I was wondering how changing the skid in relation to the tunnel effect powder riding? better or worse?
