I went for a long ride on saturday in my neck of the woods. There are alot of stripmines with jumps,hillclimbs,mudholes etc. The thing ran awsome there were a bunch of us some with four wheel drives and some with sport atvs. I went hrough every mudhole the 4 wheel drives did and was able to go just as fast as my freinds raptor 700. So I would say this is the most versitle atv I have ever owned it is a blast with a ton of power for hillclimbs it was unstoppable !! It is a little heavy but jumped real well. I was doing a 30 foot table top with ease in 3rd gear !!
