We looked into Lexan hood, but the durability issue was one that we couldn't overlook. They are known to have problems cracking and breaking when used for trail riding.

I think it's a great idea.

I just have one question though. Is this project totally unbiased or are there some advertising concerns involved?

If there's anything I can help with, let me know. I've been through more than my share of aftermarket parts.

I wanted to build a project that would represent what is available out there that nobody in the midwest are currently using. Things such as carbon fiber arms, etc.. are things I have never seen here, so that is what I went after.

Allot of research was put into what is out there, what works, and what is available. Many sources were looked into, but I feel what I decided to pursue is what would fit the project's needs best.

Amongst it are a couple of products like the Team clutch that just are talked about allot on the forums, but nobody has any details on it.

All projects and reviews on SW are non-biased. Period.

I would accept nothing else.

I can't wait to see this sled in action. I think the sled should be called Ultimate ZX.
Hopefully this sled will be at the SW ride in haliburton, for some real world testing It will be nice to see some performance numbers and a Wet weight.

Cool

I'm curios as to the cost of the ExpertX rear suspension? I wanted to get one for my sled but, low and behold I cant find them!! Let me know where to get a price! Thanks! Can't wait to see the results on this thing. Should handle like a Cadi and drive like a Dodge Viper!! Keep it up! SWRules

I'd rather laugh with the sinners then cry with the saints!
