The Victory/Indian scenario reminds me of growing up the older of two boys. My parents essentially experimented on me with heavy handed discipline, but learned to ease off with my brother who was 4.5 years younger than me.
The result was a laid back, rough at the edges me, while my brother was more sophisticated. The perfect analogy for Victory coming before Indian. The road tests of the preproduction Indians always mention things like the smoother tranny, not like the clunky Victorys.
So Polaris was heavy handed with Victory, but learned to produce a kinder, gentler Indians.
