Default What do you think about the 2008 IQ Shift

2008 Polaris IQ Shift

The 2008 Polaris IQ Shift snowmobile is black--plain unadorned black. It has no graphics. No rear idlers. What it does have is all-around Polaris power with 120 hp for performance, plus the lowest price tag you can imagine on a sled that will fly over the snow.

Polaris IQ Shift with Freestyle seat
The 2008 Polaris IQ shift comes with the new Hybrid Raw chassis that replaces the front radiator with full-length tunnel cooling. It also has the new re-designed front spindles for high performance on the snow.

Polaris IQ Shift comes with the IQ Shift track -- traction
minded shockwave 121" track with .91" lugs.
The IQ Shift has a freestyle seat, standard fuel guage, analog speedometer, and tachometer as an accessory.

By mating the Liberty 600 HO carburated engine with the most stable chassis on the snow, then selling it for less than $7K, I would call that one helluva good deal! The only thing that I don't like is the fact that the rear outside skid ideler wheels are missing.
I also like the idea of a solid black machine that you can customize the graphics yourself eg.... Red Bull or Monster ect...

I just mite consider one of these sleds in the near future (NOV)

What do you think.

Actually there are 2, just the inside ones. AC has been doing it for years. Less drag, less weight.

Easier turning because the outside of the track flexes more.

i would say so since you still have the inner wheels to push the track out.
