Default Polaris Trail Blaster XB1

Here is my new toy. Has a predator 420 and 40 series TQ.
Driver was positioned inboard so it only ran 17mph. 10t 58t
Longer jackshaft is in and clutch will be spun around in the proper orientation.
Once I beat my buddy it will be tore back down, front axle straightened and new spindles and rear axle setup.
Motor will be over 20hp, most likely closer to 30.

I can find almost NO info on these. Couple post on here and a couple pictures elsewhere online. 2 local Polaris dealers have never heard of or seen one. No mention of them on dealer websites either. It is in crazy good shape. Roll cage is super cheesy. Bolted together and crimped like a swing set.

I tried looking into what they were and yeah, came up empty handed as well. Saw one or two threads on here from a few years ago. http://www.diygokarts.com/vb/showthread.php?t=32848

Plans are to straighten the front axle and replace the spindles. Thoughts are to lower the front some to get some weight transfer when mounting the new spindles. Any thoughts on sourcing a quality spindle kit? Have found tons of cheap ones. I would prefer some with bearings. I don't need the full adjustable ones, just beefy. I also will be looking for some help on the geometry of the front end. Rear axle setup will hopefully be sourced used from the dirt oval world.
