In the next few years i would like to get a new sled. Preferably 200-2004. I want something to go on the trails, when i hit deep powder i want a lot of power, and when i hit an open field or a long open trail i want some speed. Here what i came up with so far:

2000-
Mxz, machz, formula z 600, 700
2001-
Mxz standard, trail, or adrenaline
2002-
Mxz adrenaline, sport, cross country/trail
Mach z sport, tech plus
2003-
mach z
Mxz renegade, trail

I want to shorten this list.

Sounds like you want a renegade, and spend the extra $$ and make sure it is a rev chassis. You may regret it if you don't. The 600 ho has lots of power, but the 800 has more. Don't cheap out get the rev

make sure you ride it b4 buying it. The rev is not the best sled for everyone.

I am actually looking into the 04-05 800 switchback because I can get a similiar chassis to the zx in a longtrack with an 800 and it is newer then an 02-03 gade summit.

Look at the market, like you said you have a couple years... ride anything you can. If you ride with me next year you can test out whatever I am riding :wink:

btw the market is flooded, if you can scrape up a little bit and part out the vintage for cash I bet you can get on a 99 mxz 600 for $900 or less

Again, curious as to why not? Personally after making the change I could never go back, wife and son feel the same.

and one thing, you don't need to put everything in caps, we were just making a suggestion, and if you didn't want a rev, then what did you metion the year 2003?

Just a sugestion but, if you havnt ridden the rev for a good long ride, you should b4 you decide. I really liked the Z chasis, still do, but no comparison after 50-75+ mile ride. The rev and RT frames take so much less out of you IMHO.

why??[/b]
I dont like the looks, maybe a little later on in life ill like it but i still like the looks of the low profile sleds. Im sure in the long run i would like the rev better for comfort but i dont like the looks. Plus they're more expensive.

All the best in your search. If you do decide to go with an older chassis, don't be upset that your riding partners on the "rider forward chassis" take off on you when the trails get rough. They will likely wait for you up the trails ways. They will want to go out for a ride the next day after having spent 6-8 hours racking up the mileage, when you might not want to shake up your tired body.

It's your choice and it will be your sled, but when you are riding it you can't see what it looks like

im only 16 so im not too worried about my body being shaken up. Sorry for the caps, i just really dont like the looks of the revs, 2003 isnt all revs. Maybe later on ill get a rev but not now. Oh yeah, i dont think im ever going to part out the vintage. Its my first sled that my dad gave me for free, so it has some sentimental value to me. Plus its the fist sled ive ever rebuild.

Well I think if you go back to the beginning of the topic, the best advice was there, the renegade is probably the best choice for all around sledding IMO. 16 huh? oh the memories.... I'm 40 now so comfort and ease of handling start to become more important LOL... Good Luck and enjoy whichever you get..

yeah, well the perfect sled for me is the 500ss, and this was coming from a 15 year old who had a 700 triple.
