Thinking of stretching my 07 Apex RTX to one of these lengths and would like to see pictures of your mods and whos kits & parts you may have used & track choices for a flat-lander/boondocker, pros/cons and any issues. Thinking of using Ulmers kit and purchasing a track from someone or TRACKS USA. Need input.

Thanks,
Rich K.

ZX-2! Same sled/same boat as you are in. I love it. Here are my pics. I went with a Muffinworks tunnel extension. (144") A lot of people rave about the Muffinworks extensions. I had a few isues with mine, but I was told that all of their 121"-144" extensions were done by hand at the time whereas the 121" to 136" were all CNC cut. I had to do a little trimming with a die grinder which wrecked the powdercoating. Overall I am pretty happy with the extension and I love the sled.

OFT Racing is currently manufacturing rail extensions with a 6 degree tip up and full length hyfax for the Nytro and will have the Apex version done shortly. You can find our summer project sled here in this link:

Any idea when they will be done? I am ready to go 136 and would like to pick up your kit for my Apex.

All of our extensions are now laser cut. We are fabricating rail extensions in 136" and 144" ... either straight or with a 6 deg tip up.

See website for details.

The aluminum for the Apex rail extensions is coming in Monday morning and we will get them machined next week. There was a slight difference between the track adjustment windows between the Nytro and the Apex where our extensions lock into the factory rail. Minor adjustment for the four cylinder sleds and we'll be good to go. Rock On

Scott

Couldn't agree with you more. Tom is a great guy to deal with and I, myself have been buying parts from him for almost 10 years. We also use his tunnel extensions with our kits. I just feel that we came up with a better, cleaner design for the rail extensions and that is why we manufacture them that way. My number is on our website too. Feel free to call me anytime. If you get my voicemail, leave me a message and I WILL call you back.

Best regards,

Scott Murray
