A couple weeks ago I had a chance to look at OFT's
Big Nutz Axle kit for OEM Rails at the Salt Lake City SnowShow.

This morning I placed an order for that kit with the 7 inch wheels and two 8" wheels for the drop brackets as well.
What the heck, I want this sled to look GOOOOOD this winter!

Should arrive toward the end of this week and then the install will begin!

Questions.
What size is your track?

Why did you stay with the 3 wheel flavor and not go to the 2 wheel conversion?

Did you add the wheels to skid, or were they already there and you converted them to the aluminum. I have been really thinking of adding a set of wheels to mine as my Hyfax was TRASHED last season, but the 162 SE doesn't come with any wheels on the skid.

The reason I went with a 3 wheel kit was I have boost and many people recomend to have more than 2 when running boost, right or wrong I dont know just what I did as preventative.

Hopefully when I get home from the Snow Show tonight there will be a box waiting for me from OFT Racing!

But i came across a 9" ear Wheel / Axle set from CE Components for the Nytro..

9 inch wheels would be awesome..



Probably won't be long before OFT comes out with one of these themselves :face-icon-small-win:face-icon-small-win

I have to admit, now I have Big Nutz Envy.
Those 9 inch wheels are SWEET.
Maybe there will be an upgrade for next summer!!

New wheels and axle arrived today.
But came with no instuctions.
Been fighting this new axle for half an hour now.

For the life of me I can't figure out HOW to get it back in the frame with the wheels on it.

Thinking of opening the rail and gaining some space that way to slide the axle in.

now to get the 2 large wheels off the upper axle.
They feel like they have been pressed on and don't want to come off at all.

Just use a good heavy rubber hammer put one of your bolts all the way in and hit the end it will knock one off and then you can take the shaft out and knock the other one off they are on there snug but not to bad..
