    People fit 1.5" tracks under vmax 4's. 1" will fit no problem. I just put a 1.25" under my '93 with studs in its. No rubbing issues. I would use cooler protectors for the rear cooler. There is no cooler in behind the track drivers on a vmax 4. Just the tunnel coolers up top and the rear cooler. And of course the rad. On my '95 with 8 tooth drivers I run 1.86" studs.

    Rustman is correct. 1.25 studs are no problem in a one inch track. Rear heat exchanger protectors are needed as mentioned. Front protectors are a good idea to protect the bulkhead in case you ratchet the track or brake hard even though there is no heat exchanger there. There was a nylon tunnel protector available at one time that slid over the rib of the heat exchangers in the tunnel. They are hard to find now. We have thousands of miles on Vmax4 s set up this way. Keep the track tight. Good luck.

    I wonder how these two “chassis same” sleds could be that different.

    Because they are not "chassis same"

    500/600 Max and Vmax-4's share very little in chassis parts.

    I reserve the right to change my mind if someone can prove to me it needs replacing.

    My apologies all. I was under the assumption that the area between track and belly was the same on the 94-96 Vmax and the VM4s.

    None needed, I haven't measured either sled chassis to know what the difference may be but have been done to bare chassis on both and know there are many differences. Also know the guys posting on the Vmax-4 fitment do have experience with what they are claiming.

    PS, did enjoy your thread on your Vmax build.
