Ok guys here is a sneak peek of the new parts
Now the center link for the suspension fits nice and tight to the shape of the sled so it will always be centered
this way i just bold it together and then clip it in
now the new wheels will be on the outside of the rear suspension so you will the whole wheel now and they are adjustable on the ends so you can tighten the track if its to loose.
The new steering knuckles I made a step for the shock so its easy to install and won't hit the suspension arms anymore I also countersunk the bolt for the trailing arm.
Also the shock mount is made into the steering knuckle.
Things look much cleaner and easier to install.
Now once the rear suspension is done (that's what I'm doing now almost there LOL) I will post pics of it.
So have a look and let me know what you think of the new parts.

Ok hurricane i just have to say you do amazing work those kits look killer. So i've built one of these mxz sled and it seems to do really good as long as it's heavy snow or if it's only 4" to 5" deep. I've tried running it up at my family cabin where we have alot of powder and i'm having a hard time keeping it from just digging a hole. Do you know of anyway to maybe long track one? I do have an extra track i just do know if you can cut and splice two of them to gether or will it just rip the track apart where ive spliced it ? Do you have any ideas on how i might could do this?

I think you should be able to add to the track if you do it right just make sure how ever you join them that the part if flexible and will bend around the drive wheels.
Also make sure you line up the lugs and even space them.
