    Yeah, 166 (+/- 10) meant the purchase of some extra gear, 2dogs. I had the gear for up to 100. Since i had to buy, I ended up buying 3/4” drive. Made the job very easy. Just call me Tim the Tool Man Like you, I do still wonder though why they felt the need to nearly double the torque over the pre 2014 models.

    Yep, lug nuts are 70. As you know the rear axel is a tube, not a solid shaft. I don't read every post but to date I don't recall seeing any justification here for a 166 lb rear axle torque, other than that's what the specs call for. Why did BRP nearly double the torque specs? I don't want to name names here but you and I both know people who are running around with 80/90 lb torque settings.

    My TQ wrench only goes up to 100 ft/lb. I just did 100 ft/lbs and then took a breaker bar to snug it up a touch more. Not at 166 ft/lb's, I can tell you that..

    If you use the extension I show in post #10, https://www.spyderlovers.com/forums/...=1#post1490248, you might be able to get the full 166 with your 100 lb-ft wrench. That extension is 6" long. Put that and your wrench length into the calculator on this page, https://www.engineersedge.com/manufa..._extension.htm and see how high a torque you can get with your current wrench.
