it is not always fresh and then there are the  jumps and drops 

Still doesn't work the shocks half as hard as pounding moguls. The Float upgrade on Summits is for people who want to save a few pounds and have money burning a hole in their pocket.

Are they a spring option now or do you still have to buy them outright and try to sell the stockers?

Of course I have, it's still about 100,000x softer than diamonds.

Oh Dave, dumb dumb Dave, trails are literally super packed down hero snow... You might as well be claiming fresh poured concrete is as hard as set concrete   :lol:

Tell that to the off kilter 3 footer that sent me fish tailing until the sled flipped out from under me last season because the HPG Plus center shock couldn't take the hit.

Actually I was on Pops' X when I wrecked because he was tired of me telling him the handlebar adjustable airshock in mom's Enduro put his X rear suspension to shame. We switched sleds with me before a whooped out section of trail and I proved myself right by eating shit on his undersprung, undervalved X :lol:

I don't know where you ride but up in NY they're really on point with grooming now, if you know where to avoid the real heavy traffic you rarely see big rollers anymore.

Buy a RR or R-XC and they'll take it on pretty good.

Where are those sleds on the scale of shock stiffness and actual XC Race setup...guessing the R XC is basically race ready but how close is the RR?

I haven't ridden a RR since the 2014 and I never rode a RR and R-XC back to back, but I'd say they are fairly close.  Most people, unless they are riding them back to back, probably wouldn't notice.  

With the new QS3's on the R-XC, #1 would be a trail riding setting, #2 as close to a XC race setting as you'll get without reworking the shocks, and #3 is just odd.  Like a cross between a sno-x and XC setting.  

You'd be happy with either one once you get the suspension set up for you.

That sounds good....I had a used R XC on the line but I let it go and went with this IQR...nice sled but needs a little softening up. :ylsuper:

like I said I avoid the places I know that shit happens . if i trail ride around the house I know exactly what was groomed and when and by who . at the cabin I know the scedual . 

places lime the UP in low snow every place else you can't pay me to go to . really I won't travel more than a day trip north any more . if i am going to be out of town for more than a day I will just fly out to CO for a 3 days  .

Done deal. :bc: Ice ripper 1.5, medium windshield, mirrors, 2" riser, transferring all the other stuff from my old sled, and I chose the June-September delivery so I can at least sit on it and play with it in the garage. :lol:

Nice, but I wouldn't have wasted your $ on the IR 1.50".  Should have just ordered it with a 1.25" RS1 and then swapped it out for a 1.50" RS2 and sold the RS1 on DY or CL. That's what I'll be doing :bc:

Pretty sure you can either do that or dealer will swap out stock shocks and give you so much $ credit towards whatever shock you choose.

@ford_428cj, check out where I was today.

The last picture was the route the Winnipeg to Willmar I-500 was suppose to take.  It is one of my favorite sections of trail, if not my favorite.
