So you are saying your 570 will do 70 MPH ???? I will throw the BS flag at that statement. I have driven multiple 325's and all will do 55 MPH and the 570 I drove would NOT get to 60 MPH no matter how hard I pushed it.I OWN them both ......trust me the 570 is worth the 1000 bucks .
and it's more like 10-15 mph top end difference.

We had some guys a while back do speed tests with the 325, verified with GPS, and the highest recorded was 53 MPH.the 325 being able to go 55mph ..........................
downhill maybe with a strong tailwind
Is the scrambler 4x4? I'm counting on the 4x4 to help out. I've made it up some big dunes in a stock s10 blazer with 4x4I need some paddles for mine so I see what it will do in the sand...don't think I will even bother without paddles on the Ace. The scrambler does fine without but is a total beast with some paddles...but it is over twice the HP and about 100lb lighter.
I know exactly what you mean. I read about the 570 and want one cuz bigger is better, right? But then the 325 has been a great machine so far and I LOVE the gas mileage on it.Funny, I want the 570 most when I'm reading stuff on this forum, otherwise I love the 325. I'm going to the dunes this weekend though, I'm really curious what it will do.
Honestly, If it's a bit of a challenge that means it's going to make it just as fun. If it's too easy I think it takes something away from it. Some of the best times I've had on the dunes were in vehicles NOT dune capable. Oh and by the way, thanks for those lighting tips they helped out!Yes it is 4x4. Sand is such a power hog so the paddles help you float instead of dig. I like the 570 sand build thread...tells me the 325 will do fine in sand with the right setup.
I'm sure this is a dumb question but when you guys dune out there do you air down the tires? Over here we take almost all the air out. I used to try to drive a 3/4 ton chevy up the dunes. It would work, I'd get stuck at the crest because of the long wheelbase (8' box - extended cab)I remember duning with a Kawasaki Brute Force 650 and a Brute Force 750 on the same trip.
Same wheels/tires (ITP aluminum wheels, BigHorns). Same dune face. We switched drivers to make sure it wasn't a factor.
The 650 consistently got stuck 80% up the dune, dug in with all four wheels and bottomed out. Had to back down the dune face.
The 750 roared over the top, spraying sand everywhere.
Backing down a steep dune face sux.
