With some help from some of the biggest names in the performance sledding industry, we're about to give our 03 F7 a whole new attitude!

Like any project we start, it's gotta get ugly before it gets "perdy"

Doesn't look 2 good here.... but there's a plan in the werx!

and you thought CATS were green ?

The Yellow will stay for adrenalator8. This sled will look the 'part' , to sneak into camp BOMBI and lay down the hurt rollinglaugh.gif

Took a few tries, but finally settled on a pattern that fit the sleds shape

Strip'd of her old ski, this is one sled cry'n for some new color and that's exactly what she'll get! all in good time. Give us a call if you want a custom sled designed, unique to your color choices and rider style, trail, drag or radar

Thanks to Rick McCormick over at USI, our new 'SPX' skis look pretty trick, and as you can see, they're already


We'll test the USI SPX ski's then switch over to the new "SS Railer" for some high speed radar action - stay 'tuned'

If you've never seen a FIRECAT with it's hideous Snuff-a-luffakus snorkel removed, here's what it looks like... far sleeker.. and in our opinion, a hell of a lot better from a side angle. Unfortunately, the hood induction scoop's designed to suck air in so it will reluctantly have to be replaced. We needed to get under it to change some vynl

Fat tape's off, as we get closer to making our vynl templates. As thousands are already out jumping logs, dodging exposed boulders, and rip'n down backroads, we're "here"..... just beginning another 2KOOL CUSTOM project that should have been done months ago.. Oh well cheers.gif

While we're waiting on the new SPEEDWERX pipe, it was time to freshen up that tunnel. Nasty dirty job, but it's just too much of an improvement over bare aluminum not to have done. :P

Another example of what BUSCH aluminum polish can do for your ride! cool.gif

If there's been one complaint about the 03 F7 it's the seating position that most people were disatisfied with. Especially when the newer release sleds started coming out with higher, firmer seats. That's no longer an issue here on our project F7, as Robert Delegarde from Delux Auto Glass, has turned our once mushy, low ride'n, spine buster, into a new higher, stiffer, more bump absorbing platform for those jumps and bumps we're eager to get to. What we were most impressed with is how invisible to the eye, other than the obvious height increase, Rob was able to make the changes that were necessary. Again.... quality work, and the reason we wouldn't have anyone else doing our custom upholstery

Thanks again Rob!

Time for a little "Exhail", and that comes to us from [/color] SPEEDWERX and their single Fat Pipe. From everything we've read, the 03 canister is pretty much as good as it gets, so we'll leave that part of the exhaust it's bulky 13lbs.

If there's one thing that's paramount here at 2KOOL , it's telling it like it is. We'd rather test a product and give you our honest opinion than throw a blind sales comment at our clientele. So far, here's what we know....

Claimed weight savings on the new single pipe is supposed to be 6lbs. With a digital scale, we weighed the stock main pipe with heat shield in at 12lbs 8oz to the SPEEDWERX 8lbs 7oz. Somewhere there's 2lbs floating around that we didn't save. Had we taken the heat shield off the stock pipe, the weight savings would have been even smaller? Regardless, the ceramic coating will keep our new pipe hot on the inside, and that's where the performance benifit is. Is it worth drop'n $379 US?... To save 4lbs and a possible 2-3hp, time will tell. What we do know is, it's one of the only aftermarket single pipes that's dyno'd positive results.

We had to have it for this project because it's so darn 'perdy' , but we're sick like that cool.gif

One step forward, 2 steps back?

As everyone heads for fresh ice, we're still in the shop, but that's 'ok'. Couple of touch ups here..there....and we'll be lay'n down the vynl in no time.

Hope you're all out enjoy'n your wild rides!

Parts are starting to filter in for the Project, and these shock covers are really 'something'. We'll most likely go with the Natural Fire Series for this particular project. SHOCK-PROS has a variety of both Flamed and Solid choices, and not for just sleds, 4 wheelers too!

Check em out! We'll be having some FREE draws for our registered members over the course of the season cool.gif


As many new sled part accounts continue to open here through 2KOOL for our clientele, we'll also have this line for you .

Flamed pairs $42 CAD
Solid pairs $37 CAD

As with anything, we'll match or beat any advertised price in the Nation for you[/color] cool.gif

Still a work in progress, but with a few more graphics and accessories we'll be ready to roll! No rush as all we're seeing in our region is 'turf', with more rain in the forecast devil_angry.gif

Pictures aren't showing the actual colors here, as what you're seeing is actually bright hunter (safety) orange. Nice and Bright so
[/color] adrenalator8 can see what's in front of him rollinglaugh.gif [/color]

cool.gif This is closer to what you'll see up close as far as color. We feel it's a far improvement over the 1 in a million 03 graphics package. The sled is starting to match better, the FXR RACING apparel that we set out to design it around...... it will all make better sense soon enough [/color]
