We'll be out on it in the next three days. If it seems too loaded, I'll definitely take you up on that.
Not too much track for that sled. 151 and 156 were common track lengths people stretched the 700 to in the day. I ran a 144 on my 99 600 RMK which I later put a 700 top end onto and it worked fantastic, would climb most anything I pointed it at... 2008 600's have 155 x 2.4 tracks and work fine...
