Somebody said that on the Xtra-12, there is more friction on the hi-fax, so if you ride in marginal snow conditions you heat up the hy-fax and then when you stop the track will seaze up to the track. Is this possible?

Re: Xtra-12

This situation is possible on any sled, I can't imagine that it would be that much more on an extra12, but who knows? Use Hyperfax, then it wouldn't be an issue.

Re: Xtra-12

X-tra 12's are a little more prone to overheating sliders than other sleds I've had, but as long as you are aware of the potential for a problem and make a little extra effort to keep them lubed you're OK. By that I mean don't expect to run on glare ice for more than a quarter mile without finding some loose stuff to run thru. I had over 4000 miles on my first set of hyfax. I think my 96 has an extra pair of wheels over a 95, but they are still pretty close. The hyfax wears a little more quickly at first, but as the wheels start supporting more of the weight, wear and friction decrease a lot.
