    Where are all the Matrix's?

    I know there are 3 in CA., a couple in Wyoming and if I remember Baxter went to OZ and did a couple. Just curious to see how many could be accounted for.

    I was told there were only about a dozen or so true Matrix's that were made and sold by Baxter.

    For some people this seems to be a sensitive subject - not really sure why.

    If you poke through the Matrix threads, you can get an idea how many there were, all told.

    Some Matrix were shipped to Spain. Some were actual 'Polaris' Matrix, some were sold directly by Factory Pipe, and a few were sold in upgrade kit form. There were some prototypes along the way.

    A few might even have been assembled from 'spare Matrix parts' after FPP stopped.

    Good find!

    Is it in running condition?

    Keep in mind that many of the Matrix engines require a splash of race fuel mixed in with the premium grade pump fuel. Some owner's didn't realize that, and a few Matrix engines suffered detonation damage. Fixable, but something to keep in mind.

    Do you have any pictures of it, from the ad perhaps?

    mdeps we need to meet up to ride ours together some time-just tell me where, I told Al my goal in life was to get all 3 together

    You have to buy one to be told....or wait to Al gets back to tell the story, One is Casper of course who is 20 ft west of me right now in the garage, under the cover....in a garage with a cover LOL.
    All the posts on PWCToday are now gone, sadly as is all the Matrix's that were sent to Spain for testing by Polaris were completely broken up and destroyed by Polaris for legal reasons as any manufacturer would do with test vehicles
    30 kits made, 2 as of last year not installed, I think Al told me 10 skis left with most of course being '03s, Casper is a "stock" '04 P3 Matrix - Als '03 is a little built-up of course

    and 16 went to Spain? I had it down in my I-Phone notes but never down loaded the info and the darn thing broke and loss all the info

    He told me it was race ready. I hope he is good on his word.
