Last year I went from a rev renagade to a backcountry x. wow what a off trail machine. I was wondering though how they were water skipping with all the vents for water infiltration to the clutches and turning the larger 1 3/4 inch track. the rev was fine for puddle jumping but if I was going out mainly to play on water I would tape seams and clutch vents (Found that out the hard way). Any experince or advice would be appricated.

Seal or tape up the running boards behind the clutches. water sprays right up and hits the first 3-4 open spots in the boards. I would also caulk between the bulkhead and plastic in the belly. I've skipped a lot with my short track XP on the river, seems to work fine.

Ported tracks for skipping arent a good combination just keep that in mind

It's not really the puddle jumps or small water crossings i am worried about. It's when i go out to specificly play on water. Carving, catwalks etc.
Do you get more water up in the tunnel with a ported track thus harder to turn. This is what I was worried about with the 1 3/4 inch track.

The 1 3/4 shouldnt be all that bad, my friend has a ported summit and he does fine, you definitely don't want to go slow though.
