you really can't put any longer of a track on it without modifying the rails and tunnel. I assume you are talking about total length, but you may be talking about lug height. Please clarify.

There are long track tunnel extension, rail extension and track aftermarket kits you can buy but I don't know if they fit older sleds. I've been thinking about buying the kit for my edge to make it a 136". plowking

I think that you would find that going to a deeper lug track would be more beneficial as far as performance goes.

That 400 would have a hard time turning a longer track.

I agree with RJ that a deeper lug track will give you similar gains that a longer track would.
