Do you have any idea if this kit is being done in warranty? How about race sleds, are they sending parts out to racers?

I know the 2010's had an update on the heat shield protecting the injectors other than that I dont know of anything. I havent heard anything about the 11's having troubles with anything heat related. The sno pros run so hot underneath the hood though, Ive had the glue on the back of the foam get hot enough to to release and have the foam get tangled up in the clutches and there is no thing as exhaust side foam because its all burnt up

I don't know about the 600 racers but my update was done under warranty and then i removed all of the foam on the upper parts of the side panels and replaced it with fiberglass heat tape from the jeg's racing catalog

The 600 SP has not been a problem for us. The 500 SP seems to have more issues with melting insulation, mostly on the right side.
