Default 163 vs. 155 track length with turbo?

I have always run the longest track possible with N.A. sleds but now am looking at a turbo axys, and most of them seem to be 155ís. Is that adequate track for the 3 ft of new snow days? I donít even have any trouble weaving a 163 through the trees but maybe itís not necessary. Thanks for your opinion

The 155 will wheelie like crazy, you will feel more in control on a boosted 163. Especially if its a 850.

You Will want the longer track if you want any hope of keeping the nose down a bit more haha. Had a buddy turbo his 800 and was a 155, has since went up to a 163 and loves it more.

How controllable is a 155 turbo with aftermarket suspension to help ski lift?

I have a 12 assault turbo with a 2.6 155. Its been a constant battle to keep the front down. Either you setup your rear track spring so stiff it rides like crap or you will wheelie straight over backwards in steep climbs. I added arc which does help but its not a cure. If you don't plan to climb anything steep a 155 turbo is a blast. You have to ride as far forward as possible which can really wear you out.

I can tell you from first hand experience, that running a K-mod suspension dramatically reduces front lift.
With 20 position Raptor shocks-along with the new geometry of front and rear arms to the 4 position coupler to control lift- it all work flawlessly together.

The 155 does trench a wee bit more then the 163's (snow conditions of course play a role) but with a stock suspension compared to the K-mod from the ones we have seen/installed- you have at least control over your sled now, and that's the focus control......The plush ride is just a bonus!!!

Ya the video's look cool with the ski's in the air- / it get a bit scary steering with your feet and it's a bit embarrassing cause 3/4 of your track is grabbing nothing but air- and leaving a hole that always get peeps impressed.

I installed a kmod on my boosted155 last week and it is a completely different sled now. I set the skid up with more playful settings because we typically ride trees and creek bottoms. Before the kmod my sled was borderline uncontrollable. On the minimum coupling setting it pulls th front end up when you want it to but your in control. I can't say enough good things

With the Gen 3 skid, you can get Fox coil-overs with high/low speed compression dampening and rebound adjustments for even more fine tuning the suspension to your liking.
