Default 2016 IQr

2016 was set up at Haydays, I do not have all the specs but have heard minimal changes this year. Chassis is going on 11yrs! Polaris built a chassis so good in 05 that even they are having a hard time beating it.

2016 Polaris® IQ® Race Sled Features Walker Evans Shock Package That Has Won Titles & Gives Racers Outstanding Adjustability





Polaris snowmobile racers head into the season with optimism and confidence fueled by the proven, winning 2016 Polaris IQ® Race Sled. Polaris racers will enjoy the greatest range of ride and handling adjustability ever from the Walker Evans® Racing shock package that was developed through extensive testing and racing.


“Our shocks in recent seasons have been really good, but we spent the better part of three years developing the calibration of this sled in conjunction with Walker Evans Racing,” said Polaris Racing Manager Tom Rager, Jr. “The big benefit is adjustability. These are high-low rebound-adjustable shocks that have a different kind of rebound than most shocks, and the design keeps the clickers separate from each other so they don’t affect each other when you make adjustments to one of them.”


Top Polaris racers such tested the shocks and race sled extensively in the spring of 2014 and throughout the 2014-2015 racing season. They developed specialized suspension setups that suited their individual racing styles – and won snocross races in the United States and Canada.


Polaris has historically developed high-performance technology on race sleds, then implemented versions of these components and designs on consumer sleds. Such features include legendary Polaris IFS, the lightweight crankshaft, high/low compression-adjustable shocks, high-strength chassis architecture, rider balanced positioning, and more.


Key Features on the 2016 Polaris IQ Race Sled
Walker Evans Racing Shock Package
• IFS shocks: Front track and rear track shock are Walker Evans Aluminum IFP Adjustable Shocks with Piggyback Reservoirs
• IFS shocks and rear track shock are high/low/rebound adjustable with 28 low speed positions, 22 high speed positons and 16 rebound positions of adjustability
• Front track shock is high/low adjustable with 28 low speed positions and 22 high speed positions of adjustability
• Clickers on each shock are in isolated positions for easy adjustment without affecting one another
• IFS shocks have a 2"-diameter shock body, up from 1.75"; the increased area reduces internal pressures resulting in improved shock performance
• IFS travel is 10.3" (26.1 cm) and rear suspension travel is 13.9" (35.3 cm)
• The shock designs let teams make changes quickly on the track and at trackside between motos


128" Rear Suspension
• Polaris 128" rear suspension with 128" track provides outstanding traction
• Increased torsion spring rate
• This setup delivers outstanding holeshots, better stability in whoops sections, and improved cornering
• This rear suspension tracks straighter in the whoops sections, and helps minimize ski lift for enhanced turning
• The track is an aggressive 15" x 128" x 1.75" Sno-XT track


Proven Polaris IQ® Chassis
• The 2016 IQ Race Sled is built on the strong, durable, lightweight Polaris-exclusive IQ® Chassis
• Advanced assembly techniques minimize sled weight and the number of parts used
• Design, materials, and manufacturing processes provide maximum strength and durability


Polaris Liberty® 600 Engine
• Liquid-cooled 600 twin delivers best-in-class acceleration for outstanding holeshots
• Engine delivers impressive horsepower across the entire RPM range
• Twin Mikuni Rack TM 40 carburetors
• NiCaSil-lined cylinders for efficient heat dispersion
• Polaris VES (Variable Exhaust System) for maximum power and instant throttle response
• Sled uses legendary Polaris P-85 drive clutch and Lightweight TEAM® Roller driven clutch


Lightweight Crankshaft
• Has a 2.5-pound weight reduction in rotating mass compared to the previous crankshaft
• Inertia is reduced by 25%, and throttle response and acceleration are enhanced
• This all adds up to improved holeshots and the engine reaching its optimal operating RPM faster


Premium Brake Pads
• Hayes® Type 126 brake pads deliver consistently reliable braking as brakes heat up during racing
• They also help to extended brake pad life
• Liquid-cooled brake system uses Cyclone master cylinder and “Phantom” dual piston caliper


NEW 2016 Racing Graphics
• New racing paint scheme features: red hood, side panels and front skid plate; black low windshield
• Racing seat is black and red with Polaris graphics
• Hood and side panels feature Polaris 600 R graphics

Model year 12 for a chassis that came out the same year as the consumer IQ. Anyone remember the '05 Fusion 900?

Pretty remarkable that the IQR was born from the same basic chassis!

Could the 2.5 pound lighter crankshaft show up in the consumer version 600 next year?

Completely different motor than the consumer 600.
