What a difference.
When I changed over to DEcoupled the front end lifted right up again. Much easier to play with when not climbing. This is really a suspension that wants you to make quick on the fly adjustments to dial it n for exactly the kind of riding your doing. Climbing, couple it. Playing in the trees and fields, uncouple it. Turn over time, less than one minute.

In Canada it was just rotating the block.
But Kevin came by last week and gave me a NEW BLOCK that he is putting into production this summer..

This one offers even more versatility between the 4 major settings.

Sled should be up on the rack next week and mods will begin then.

Does anyone know the actual wieght of any of these skids? Would be nice to compare weight as well.

How about price, is it fair to list there price here? I know what shocks you go with will change the price and weight of the skid but maybe list the price, weight and what shocks are being used, and get a rough estiment?

If it works out and I can afford it I may be doing a whole different build this year, my biggest decision is what skid to put under it. Rigth now I am leaning towards the CR10 and Racers Edge.

No.
I totally forgot to weigh it before I installed it.

The whole thing has to come out this summer to do some work on my headers and exhaust.

Will try to weight it then.

Thanks for coming on here and being honest, might be a little heavier then some but I'll take the durability/reliability over 10lbs weight saving any day

I certainly have nothing but good things to say about how it performed last winter!

Can't wait to take it out and put it through its paces again this next season!

Ive tried one of these titled skids. It didnt hold up to well lol. Got tired of bending, fixing, and sending it back on my dime. So i ended up giving Mr Baker a call and he built me a Racers Edge skid with a Elka rear and i ordered a Zbros shock for the front. Best skid i have tried bar none. Allows me to climb and still play in the trees with ease.

I have been pounding it for 2 seasons straight and all the parts are holding up perfectly including bushings and the arms unlike the last pile of chit i owned.

Daryll and Lance put out a great piece and i will be riding his skid for the forseeable future !

It's funny i don't usually hold back on products that are junk lol. This one however is another story. They make a product that i really like, although I have yet to test it lol. If it doesn't hold up then I will be more than happy to share my findings ! I guess they get a let LOL. :sorry:

Yup, worth every penny ! Have to ride one to appreciate. I personally wouldnt run anything else.
