As the April 26th deadline approachs here for putting your money down to sno check a new 03 Rev, I'm not sure what I want to do? Thought I'd ask the question out there and see how many of you have stepped up  to get a copy of this new sled, and did you get the 600HO or the 800? Thanks DooZ...

My bro snowchecked the 800 (so he could beat my 670
) sport package. No need for the stiff suspension of the X if they are going to be the same sport package as I tried on the REV. He's getting RER DPM and 1.75 lug track. Since he works at the dealership, he got a really good deal. I'm waiting for a longtrack version and for a descent motor, either the new 800 HO or SDI. I don't think the 800 is really usefull as the REV is unstable at high speeds. The 600 ho with lowered gears to get more torque should be more than enought.

If I were to order a rev it would be a 600ho sport.

I am going to wait a year and hopefully get some seat time in one to make sure its for me.

2 of my riding buddies orderd revs.
One of them doesn't even know he is getting it.His wife orderd it on the sly.What a nice surprise eh?

Yep,most of them

Laurie was going to buy me a 99 ZX chassis mxz 600 in Feb. of 99.The dealer had just sold the last one he had earlier that day.So I went out and bought her a brand new Formula S 380 a week later.Then a month later I ordered myself a 00 mxz 500.I'm glad that she didn't end up getting me the '99 cause the sc 10 2 is a way better skid.

My wife just ordered a REV 600HO RER with 1 1/4" track, DPM, and electric start.. All Black. She was going to get the 'X' package, but I talked her out of it. I thought it would be too stiff of a ride for her. I'm sticking with the MXZ 800 X on the ZX-X platform. I'm extremely happy with my 800. No need for a new one. (yet)

Idooski you just wanna make sure your wife's REV will float before you commit yourself to one!  Be sure to let us all know how it goes.

The 600 HO sounds like a good trail sled but my dealer said it was only getting 7-8 mpg. Has anyone else heard this?

When I did the Spring Break on my 02 X 800 I did not care for the two tone yellow & black so I went with black. Then added a bunch of yellow to it. Then I saw the yellow & black and liked it.
I have not seen the yellow & orange but I like the way it looks on the Ski-Doo web site so I went with it...

This way I wont have to add a bunch of stuff to it

I hope....
