    stock sponsons work great even better when you step them.

    I know on Polaris that the stock sponsons give the craft a better ride and also makes it more stable. The aftermarket sponsons will make it cut a turn a lot sharper, and the make it almost impossible to spin out. So I guess if you are into hanging a sharp turn then go aftermarket, if not then stay stock.

    FX sponsons are held on by 5 studs, not 3 like the gpr, so they cannot be stepped in the same way. People that refer to the stepping of GP-R sponsons should in fact be calling them tilted. If you take a close look at the FX sponsons then you will see a true stepped sponson. On the underside the downward facing rear surface actually steps upward about halfway along its length. This is a very efficient way of reducing straight line drag, while still retaining maximum bite on cornering. So now youall know wat a true stepped sponson looks like, REXA.
