Get graphite sliders

I did last year

a tip for ya

drill 1/8 holes 4-5 wide and the whole length of the slider(Hyfax)

I did this last year after reading an old SnowTech rag,that gave that tip

I only drilled holes on one and kept the other with no hole

at the end of the season,lots of low snow and ice riding, I did note a diference in wear

This year I will be drilling both sliders and getting graphites again

Well worth the $3 extra over the regualr slider

I bought some sliders from Farm and Fleet once and they didnt last two trips . I went to the dealer and for a dollar more got the factory ones that lasted the rest of the season. I bought the graphite kind but didnt notice much of a diff..

what does drilling the holes do?[/b]
packes them full of snow and forms a nice ice that helps lube and cool them. the way dad done them was to drill a patten that looked like the 5 side of dice over and over.the hyperfax, save the money IMHO. ohh by the way thanx FB your starting to give away the secrets I don't tell.
