I am expecting to get my 22 spring order SRX and am looking for advice .
I plan on getting a 240 or 270 SS Hurricane tune , along with a 1.5" track , and studs.
Mostly trail ridden and feel that I want/need more traction to take advantage of the increase in low end grunt .
Comments appreciated .

I had a 1.5 track for trail riding and loved it. I bought the Storm 1.5. It worked well on my stock Sidewinder BUT once I started to turn up the power the lugs started to fold and the track really stretched.
The next 1.5 track I buy will be the Ripsaw 1.5

On my previous SW when , I replaced the 1.25 track with one that had shorter studs , I noticed the difference , so I plan on putting in longer than normally recommended for the Ripsaw 1.5 .
What size studs did you have , if any ?

IMO, if you want to take advantage of a bigger lug track, then run the 24/50 TCAT gearing. Get a Muffler tune over the SM with the 270SS for more bottom end. I would also opt for a 1.25 ripsaw II track (full bar) with 1.625 studs.

My spring order SRX was cancelled , but I was lucky to find one in January , to save my riding season .
No time to do any track changes , so rode it stock . Couldn't find a 1.5" track .
Great sled , but the 1" track is an issue , as anticipated .
Too much spinning and less braking than desired .
The track is OK , but nothing on this sled should just be ok , hence the change for next year .
This , as is , is not the best trail riding model , it just looks so damn good !!!!
My LTX-GT EPS was also cancelled , so I didn't even get a chance to decide on which one to keep , as intended .
