Re: Chaincase, Holz Rear
When I spoke with the folks at Tison, they had nothing but good things to say about the Holz setup. This
is from a shop that uses the M-10 Mountain suspension on most all custom mountain sleds that they build.
Thats a pretty strong message.
Yep, I've read about the RMK's trenching.My dealer, Xtreme Polaris in the Denver ,Co area, did some testing with
the Polaris 136 x1.75, 2" and the Camoplast Challenger 141 x 2. They ran the same sled up the same hill
with each track until it spun-out. The 136 x 2 went around 300 ft, the 136 x 1.75 went about 600 ft and the
141 x 2 Challengerwent over 900ft. The test was done in fresh powder on the same day. Basically, they
recommend the Challenger as the best deep powder and climbing track. It doesn't evacuate the snow out from
under the sled like the others do so consequently it doesn't trench as much as the others. The Holz suspension
also helps the approach angle somewhat as it changes the geometry of the torque arms. No, it's not as
significant as a chaincase roll but it's something. Plus the track and suspension kit are almost a bolt-on affair
whereas the chaincase isn't You do need to change the tunnel extension, otherwise the track can contact the
extreme rear during hard landings. This is about the only aspect that isn't bolt on. It requires some riveting and
Good luck with whatever you decide.
