No way I would be able to wait that long!!! Lol

I hear ya, but I have too many other things going right now and it a 100 outside. In the mean time I'm thinking about the anti rotation arms I have to make. I will just copy Mattracks design but for $1400.00 less.

Do post photos of the anti-rotation setup you build. I think its funny that many people seem to think that they're not necessary.....

I have the installation manual so I plan to copy the design in the book as closely as I can They have an arrangement of 4 rubber cushions on flat bars then a square tube that fits over it with a plate on the end that bolts through the whole assembly. The rubber cushions are what controls the anti rotation limit. I ordered the rubber cushions yesterday from Mattracks as they are the only pieces I can't fabricate. The rubber cushions do the job of the rubber bumper with the spring and nuts arrangement on the camso tracks. I will take pictures and post them as I go.

This is how the arrangement attaches to the tracks. I shouldn't be too difficult to fabricate.

Gee, that is really a different system than what Camso or soucy uses. I can't see how it attaches to the vehicles frame or pods.

The rear uses a straight bar with a toggle link arrangement between the main bar and the frame mount, I think this is how they are controlling the rotation limit.

The front just attaches to the front A arm with no toggle, appears that there is no rotation allowed on the front other than what the rubber cushions allow.

It makes a bit more sense now. Is there any way to make travel adjustments to it??

I think they engineered the links to limit the rotation. I plan to use a large Hyme joint on one end to have better adjustment.

Yes, I understand that but on other anti-rotation systems its adjustable via changing the position of the nuts on the stabilizer rods. That way the operator can set it as they see fit.

My plan is to install the tracks set the angle I want on the tracks by blocking them off of the floor. On one end of the arm I will install a large Hyme joint. On the other end a few extra holes in the bar mount. Then I can use the extra holes and the Hyme joint threads to fine tune them from there.

There are 3 different sizes of the EZ UTV tracks, I got the middle length, the make them called EZ UTV Maxims they are 12"-18" longer than the set I bought but they are almost double the price.
