Looking to buy a brand new hold over 2002 or 2003 MXZ. Here's my choice, just looking for opinions. For about the same price (within $100)

2002 MXZ 700 Adrenaline
2002 MXZ 800 Sport

Either drive for 3 hours or pay an extra $300 for a 2003 700 Adrenaline

I haven't actually gone to look at the 800 yet, just talked to them on the phone today

What's be big difference between the Adrenaline and the Sport. I know RER, and as near as I can tell from the Ski Doo website, it's running boards and shocks too?

Which one would you choose?

The adrenaline has got the gas charged shocks & heavier springs

Go with the 700 if there isn&#39;t that much $$$ difference...you like it on the bumpy stuff and plus as said rebuildable shocks and heavier springs

Ride Height springs are NOT heavier. Only the front and I am not sure if the skid spring around the fron shock is heavier. I have the 800 Adren but for 2001. Fast sled but the weight comes obvious on long rides. Go for the 700 and swap out the factory reeds with V-Delta 3 and a 1/4" spacer. You&#39;ll keep up with most 800 with that set-up.

I think if the &#39;03 had reverse, that&#39;s what I&#39;d buy, you get the wide ZX-X chassis & running boards and DPM. I think shock/spring packages were the same in &#39;02 for sport and adrenaline lines. Adrenaline had reverse, extra running board traction, DPM and maybe adjustable toe holds? RER was option on the sport in &#39;02. I have an &#39;02 MXZ 800 sport, not bad, 700 does seem to have a better reputation though.

The 2002 MXZ Sport has rebuidable shocks just like the Adrenelin

It is the MXZ trail that does NOT have rebuidable shocks

I have an 01 700 adrenaline and i can beat my buddies 800 . I have a clutch kit v3 reeds and his is all stock. All out he will get past me but I beat him 1000ft with out a problem. Another buddy has a tcat and Ive beat him over half the time we race up to about 70 or 80 and then it looks like i locked up the brakes as he flies by. I like the 700 but I would go with whatever fits you. I also get alot better gas milage than the 800 x.
