All-New IFS is One Key Element of the 2011 IQ Racer
What do you do with the world’s best race sled? If you’re the Polaris engineering team, you work to make it even better for next winter.
The Polaris race development team has taken the proven Polaris IQ Racer – a sled that has won numerous titles on race circuits across the snowbelt – and improved it substantially for the 2010-2011 season.
How? By developing an all-new Independent Front Suspension (IFS) that’s the best they’ve ever built.
How new is it? It has new spindles, new upper and lower control arms, a new upper control arm ball joint and more!
It’s not only new, it’s better. In late-season and post-season testing, Polaris engineers and top Polaris factory racers dialed in the new IFS to give racers more precise and flatter cornering, easier steering – and better durability than ever.
In the rear, the 2011 IQ Racer features a new Walker Evans coil over needle front track shock that improves performance and consistency in all racing conditions.
From the nose to the snow flap, the 2011 Polaris Race Sled is the best ever – which is saying something, considering the championships Polaris racers have been piling up in recent seasons.
Full details will be revealed in the fall. See you at the track!
