Well I can honestly say it was a terrible first day for my ace. I went up in the trails in 4-5 foot of snow and I was amazing the first 7 miles in. I was having a blast until I got stuck the first time. The next 7 miles I got stuck about 15 times. The steering was terrible and I couldn't keep it straight. The power steering was way to soft and I was squirrly and could not hook up at all. The guys I was with were cursing out my machine and what should have been a 5 hour run turned into 9 1/2 hours of pulling me around with a tow rope. Then it happened, I hit the mother of all sink holes and my ace was waste deep. It took some serious ingenuity to get me free, how embarrassing for my new toy. On the way back down it was the same until I said screw it and raised my rpms to power through all of it. I was traveling about 25 miles per hour it tight trails for about 6 miles drifting the whole way. I felt bad for the ace but I finally made it home. I need to know what was wrong, could it have been the stock carlise tires that were no good or is this machine just to heavy for the snow. I also need to know if the power steering can be tightened up because it is wayyyyyyy to loose. With all that said I can honestly say the ace can take some abuse because I was hit a few times and I kissed a few small trees and nothing when I loaded it up it looks almost as new as when it came home plus or minus a few gouges.
