Gotta say that thing looks bad ass in person...I love the lines the look everything. The things a beast
We took my Buddies 4 seat Can Am Max to a local desert spot that we have close by where we used to ride Motocross bikes and its state land that's surrounded by homes now and a few people still sneak out there and ride its called the Water hole since it has a huge horeshoe shaped berm and it holds water back and it has tracks all around it. It has some Nasty Whoops that are all unevenly spaced and cut up with square edged wash outs from the rains. since its rarely ridden on anymore it is very rough. and hard pack with a gravel like surface so its Super squirley like riding on a hard surface with 1/4 minus gravel top. That being said we were beating the piss out of it 50+ Mph sideways through some of it and had to b e a little carefull not to slide to much of course so as not to destroy the Plastic Body on it since it only had 10 miles on it. But damn that thing worked so good it was awesome. Riding Shotgun I was Puckered up on a few hits that we nosed into, some wash outs at the Bottom of the washes were squared off and we blew rocks and dirt up and over us a few times and it didn't hurt LOL. We never took the time to adjust the Shocks but the rear shocks needed a little more compression adjustment for the nasty g outs. I think a 2 seat car with the shorter wheel base would have a hard time hanging with the 4 seater through the nasty shit. Kris loves the 4 seaters for the longer wheel base and the stability they have. He only buys 4 seaters since he had the Robby Gordon RZR and the XP900s. He said after that romp that the Max was by far the Best 4 seater yet and the suspension was awesome. His Custom Built race SXS with bad boy suspension was slightly better in comparison were his exact Words on that one. So if your in need of a 4 seater don't worry just get it. Kris has been a Polaris Owner since the first 800 came out and he had a few of them and he had a couple of the Xp900 4 seaters. He buys a new one at the start of every dune season. and He said to me when we got home from that Ride that he would never go back to the Polaris ever. for all of the reasons stated above. He said Polaris would have to really raise the Bar on a new 1000 4 seater to get him to even look at them. So if Polaris Just stretches and adds in 2 more seats on the xp1000 well then not much change at all so the Can Am Max will dominate them.I agree, they do look pretty cool. It is when you start taking notice to all of the little things. The interior looks like it was made at the same factory that molds the little plastic kiddie swimming pools….(all injection molded looking) The phone case in the dash is built terrible. I wouldn't even think about putting my I-Phone in that thing and trust that it will be safe…..The one I drove had 7.5hrs on it and it squeaked worse than a coin operated bed at a pay by the hour hotel (or so I am told :shocked The steering column felt like it was made by Fisher Price as it was so sloppy and flimsy….It honestly reminded me of those battery operated kids cars but with a fast motor in it……I am so glad i got to drive it. It just confirmed my choice of getting the Maverick was the best choice by far. I would not have been happy with the XP1K regardless of the price…..
