    Has anyone put a Viper rear suspension in a Nytro? If so how did it work?

    I am just wondering why? I have ridden several Vipers many different sizes and versions. I can tell you my Xtx with Star suspension is much more controlled in the rough bumps by far. I feel the nytro is a better balanced sled over all. Now this is simply my opinion with 12,000 miles of riding on my nytro

    My Nytro is WAY rougher through the bumps than the Viper I rode through the same bumps.

    Have you adjusted your shocks? I have run the Star suspension kit for over 7,000 miles. My only real complaint of the nytro is the ice build up on the track/ tunnel ect

    Adjusted everything. The Viper was simply better both in front-end and rear-end suspension performance.
    I like my Nytro and have it handling really well for riding hard through the tight twisty trails but, the Viper was a step above in bump performance which I am looking for now.

    Does the Star relocate kit stretch the track to 128" by moving the skid back? If so, how much is the kit? Does anyone have a 128" x 1.25" lug Camoplast track they want to get rid of? Anyone have a relocate kit they want to get rid of?
