Default Additional iqr chassis reinforcements?

So i got a new Welder and want to make my iqr bomber as possible. I know the open mod teams do some extra stuff and am looking for anyone's info or pictures of anything they have done to the iqr.

My ideas so far are

Reinforce front of running boards (iqr weak spot) to make my van amburg ultra boards as stiff as possible. I need them to still be stiff in 5 years.

Reinforce a arm attachment locations and bulkhead side walls to insure a arms bend and not bulkhead.

My sled has been dented in the very front of bulkhead for mod twin pipes clearance that where in it when it was team lavallee sled. My plan is to plate and weld this area as well as add some plate gussets to the shock upper mount location inside the bulkhead underneath where the steering hoop mouts to bulkhead

Im wanting to reinforce the location where the bulkhead and tunnel overlap as well. With all the bulkhead reinforcements i would think the damage would just transfer back to this location so i will beef it up as well so that the A arm is the weak point.

Does anyone have any experience with reinforceing the iqr. I want to ride this iqr for as long as possible. I absolutely love it for jumping and jibing. So i want to make the chassis indestructible so i can just beat on it day after day and year after year until im ready for a 155 track old mans sled. My sled gets tossed alot in bails trying whips and sometimes ends up in trees. I want it to just take hits and bend a arms. I I changed the rev 440 nuns out on a monthly basis. I used bolts instead of rivets on the nun which made it quiker but still a overnight job. I want this sled to just bend A arms and shocks so i can just go back to trailer and put new ones on in 20 mins. This the exact reason why i did not buy a freeride 137 even though it a nice looking sled. The freeride is not tough like i need. I need indestructible tough that can handle the next 10 years of abuse i will be throwing at it in the mountains. The freeride is definitely tough and im not saying im to good for a freeride, im saying im too bad. I bail alot and my sled doesn't always end up in favorable locations. And i can't afford a new sled every year and honestly cant find anything else that will work for me on a long term basis like the iqr. The new cat zr sx is cool but it is a big bulky machine and the iqr seems more flickable for wind lip jibbing. Please lus the iqr chassis is very workable and easly reinforced.

So my plan is to strip it down when i do the 800 mono conversion and do the fab work then. I have a bunch of aluminum from when i put a 136 van amburg set up on it so i can use that for plates i need to make. When it is all done and welded up to my liking i will send it out for powder coating black. I want to make it tough enough that i should never have to touch it with a welder again so a nice powder coat will be a nice final touch

Any input on iqr reinforcements and weak points would be helpful. Also will a 136 with 8in wheels fit under a new 128 tunnel. Im thinking of starting fresh with a brand new 2016 chassis from race department. For jibbing i want as short of a tunnel as possible, but need the track to fit inside tunnel when suspension all the way compresssed. I saw a zr sx with a 137 track and it fit perfectly in there, like perfect perfect. Im looking for that with my sled. I want it ro be as short as possible but working correctly. New chassis is $1500 bucks so i figured it could be worth it to start with new chassis. Selling my current set up will cover a new tunnel. And if i can mod the stock running boards myself on the new chassis and add a support to the front of the boards and my other bomber reinforcements i would be supper pumped.

Does a 136 track with 8in wheels fit under the new 128 chassis. I need it to fit into the tunnel with suspension fully compresed. The tighter the fit the better, i just need it to have a tiny bit of clearance, i want shortest tunnel possible that still works with 136 and 8in wheels. im not concerned about cooling as i ride in the mountains

I picked up a 14 mod chassis from Levi this summer. It has some bulkhead reinforcements that I can post when I get home Friday.

Did you buy this one? I consider buying that one but opted to spend a little more and get a basically new 2012 with fox floats from levi that was foam pit sled that was ridden once. They did the front bulkhead twin pipe notch right on the mods, but on mine which was a foam pit practice sled they just heated that spot and then mashed it down. Its fine but im kind of picky and it bothers me so i either want to weld and plate that area since i use single pipe and have plenty of clearance or get fresh 2016 128 chassis. I do not want to do an extension though. Does anyone know if a 136 with 8in wheels and 2in paddle will fit under stock 128? Im really leaning towards starting fresh cause my chassis now is sweet to sell if someone doesn't care about there homemade clearance mod. If levi was willing to ride it im sure its fine for average guy. If i can sell my current set up i can basically do the switch for free.

This was my sled before the mods. Will get pics of it after when its done. Van amburg took 2 months to build my tunnel extension. Kind of a long time to wait but im hoping it turns out really nice.

No, this one will stay a short track. I just traded my 09 iqr 155 for a 14 pro.
