Hey, new to forum and possible new buyer (still researching about it). My question I cant seem to find anything on is how this handles real torture so to speak. What I mean is jumping it, sliding (without tipping lol), jamming into mud puddles etc. I have my z400 that I beat the snot out of and it hold up good so don't want to go backwards on the way I ride. I know I wont be able to wipe around as fast as I can lean into quad and this is more of a hold on situation. Any info on this stuff would be greatly appreciated and could be the final push I need to go get it tomorrow.

Thanks
Roll Tide!

I took it out this past weekend and let me tell you...this ace can handle anything the big quads can handle and maybe even more. Now I am still breaking mine in and didn't want to push things to hard but the more i rode the thing the more confidence i gained on it. I took a hill on, that I only tried once before on my quad (I just made it and my buddy flipped his quad on this hill) With the ace, i didn't even think twice. The machine shot right up the hill with no problems or any doubts. I did many other just tough hill climbs and made every single one of them with ease. Not a thought of tipping over.
I was able to open it up a little on an old shale dump that had a couple of small jumps and drop offs. I hit speeds of 40 to 45 can would catch about 3 feet of air. It was a blast. So much different then my atv...so much better. It's everything you want to do in a car...but you can do it in this. I was able to fishtail and do pretty quick donuts. When I landed on the jumps, it was like landing on a cloud. Then the machine just pulled away. I didn't want to stop but i didn't want to push it.
As for mud, I didn't take it in anything to deep or crazy because i don't have my winch yet. But it pulled through everything I drove it into. The low gear just never quits. I had mud and water up over the floor boards and it was like riding through a puddle. I never got stuck or hung up and i ride some pretty crazy trails. After a while out there i didn't even care that i didn't have my winch. I wasn't getting stuck.
Overall, this Ace is impressive and has sold me. I will sing its praises whenever I get a chance. It is a tough little rig that is a ton of fun. I can't wait to take it out again and would recommend this machine to anyone and everyone. Hope this helps you out a little bit. Good people in here that I am sure will answer any question you may have. Good luck but you might not have to look to much longer now that you found the Ace.
Later

Remember the ACE is on a Sportsman chassis…with the same tough suspension that Polaris is known for..Great riding machine, little body roll and a blast to drive..

I took it on a couple of pretty tough trails too, and while I didn't feel like I was beating the snot out of it, I did feel like I was putting it through its paces, and I am very happy with the results.
Everyone has a different idea of where the line is drawn between hard use and abuse, and any machine will fail if you beat it hard enough and long enough.
But I have done my share of beating the snot out of ATVs and my 2010 RZR, and I do not feel that the ACE is in any way fragile.

Here are a couple videos to give you something of an idea:

A little late? First reply came less than an hour after you posted your question. Mine was less than 24 hours later.
Then a month went by with no reply from you, and now the info is a little late?

Well, anyway, I'm glad you came to a decision.

Lol, um maybe look at that from another perspective next time. I was referring to me as a little late on responding to y'all.
But thanks

That's the way I read your post roll tide, but I guess Scoundrel had a different interpretation. Just pull the trigger and quit making your eyes bleed

Oops.
Note to self: When using forums on a cellphone when supposed to be on vacation but sick as a dog instead, refrain from making bitchy comments.
Sorry about that.

Hey there, rolltidehack! Glad you've pulled the trigger on one. I don't think you'll be disappointed....Love mine!

LOL! What a great comment, Scoundrel. I've had to eat crow before from time to time....It's easy to do this when you have so many threads to read, and the little things can elude me from time to time. Sorry you got sick! Hope you'll feel better soon!
