Default Check out the new product on my sled

Stopped by Vanamburg Enterprises today to look at the build on my 11 Pro and got to see the first set of "open style" running boards that VEI has built. (Yep, guess that makes me the guinea pig. Not really if you know VEI's reputation for quality). Mike is using his signature extruded outer rail that is extremely strong in itself and very proven. He will be making these for other sleds also (in the future)(not sure what makes and models).
This running board should be exremely functional and strong. Also in these pictures you can see the C3 powersports extended (d & r) "chaincase" utilizing an AVID inner "chaincase". These were just built this week, so they don't even have this on their website yet.
http://vanamburgenterprises.com/

Oh, BTW, Mike stated that his running boards are lighter than Airframes (They weigh about the same as Airframes that don't have the screws in 'em yet.)

Call me crazy, but I see the potential to run FULL running board coolant in those.

Both inside, outside AND on the cross pieces. LOL

Actually not crazy at all. VEI used to do that with this exact extrusion. The problem with the newer sleds is they are not designed for this. The difficulty is getting the coolant there. Anything is possible. I would seriously look into doing that on this build but I am getting a full u-cooler so cooling will not be an issue, but it would be nice to have heated boards.

Can't remember what thickness his tunnel is, but it's for sure thicker than stock. I can't wait to see it done. Camo Extreme 2.5 but I wanted to make sure I had plenty of room for whatever track I wanted to run. Plus I like the added clearance for the 2.5"

I can't wait to see that puppy on the snow this year bud, should do real good... especially with added cooling capability

Biggest thing I miss going from my 900 to the raw is no heated boards... but them again those holes you have are WAY bigger to help flush the snow out. Should do nicely

I'm sure it can be done. Some metal fabbing no doubt though.
Yes, I have the hillclimb race model on my GenII. The tunnel was built in 2003. Running Board coolers. Still running them today with the big huge double pass cooler in the back.
I think I bought it the year after they became VE...after they were CMV. Not alot of people remember them as CMV.
