We look for the IQ race chassis to come with an all-new laid down 440 mill and a host of trick, lightweight pieces.
The debut of the IQ as an Open Mod late last season was highly successful considering the sled was rumored to be using a conventional Liberty 800 based engine.
According to sources, the IQ chassis possesses substantial flexibility in its ability to carry both a lay down and conventional, upright powerplant. However, don’t look for the current 440 used in the Polaris Pro-X racer to reappear in the IQ limited build 440.
Look for a common side intake/exhaust mill using every power enhancing trick in the book including hot buttons, pipe sensors and electronically switched exhaust valves.
Under the IQ 440’s tunnel, we anticipate a full set of clicker Walker Evans shocks with remote reservoirs, aluminum skidframe components and rail doublers.
The new engine will dramatically centralize mass in the 440 and we would expect the handlepole to come fixed in the full front position without the Rider Select system.
Look for a deep lug (1.625 to 1.750) Camo-shredder out back using Polaris’ ultra fat, hollow front drive axle. The IQ’s constant camber wishbone IFS will most certainly be a good match for the rigors of snocross.
In discussions with Polaris personnel we’ve been told the stock IQ Fusion chassis can withstand snocross racing abuse without cracking or suspension failures. This should be one tough, lightweight racer.
