On sunday some friends and I were in frederic at a place they called frederic mountain, I was having a blast, jumping and hillclimbing etc but it kind of got me wondering just how much I can beat my sled until I break something...

There was one hill that I was climbing and jumping at the top, only getting ~4-5 feet of air but it sounded like hell when I was landing. I don't think I bottomed it but it sounded rough. By the way, I was landing on flat ground not a downslope. SO how much can she take?

I do plan on getting all of the 440 braces and stiffer torsion and front springs over the summer but for now I just want to know my limits.

well with a properly valved and sprung suspension they can take alot, the braces help out a ton for those messed up landing where you land on one ski or bottom out hard.

I've beaten the snot out of my 03 and she's still straight and true. Not insane stuff, but some decent air, hard landings, big g-outs, creek beds at high speeds, etc. I've had all the shocks re-valved and I run the front end springs very stiff (I'm currently running the stiffest dual raters available at near max preload). I personally think hard bottoming over time is the frame killer here. Run her stiff and you're good to go
