What are the secrets to keeping the driveshafts from icing up? I find on some days it builds up to the point we’re it feels like driving on tractor tires.

Have a hammer handy. Every morning, get under there and spend some loving time with the hammer and driveshaft.

I wonder if tire shine would work? It works good for sxs keeps the mud from sticking. Might be worth trying it.

I’m going to try wd40 on one side and spray pam on the other this weekend to see if that will help. Only see this on Polaris. My wife’s alpha, never.

Teflon

Spray on a couple days before let dry. Run it in the sleds, works good.
