I want a bigger engine. Surely the 570 is big enough.
I want a different drive switch like on my Ranger which has 1,2,4 wheel drive. That way in really tight places your differential can work to let you make really sharp turns without breaking loose a tire.
Is there a poll feature or voting feature on this forum?

After driving my Ace for three months, I would like engine braking and insulation behind the radiator to help with cab heating. I have lots of hills on my property and while the brakes on the Ace are great, I have ridden a Sportsman 500 with engine braking on the same trails and the engine braking makes the ride a lot more pleasurable.

I guess that would depend on the angle and length of the hill.
I went down a hill this weekend that had the engine racing pretty high.
I didn't stop and put it into low gear to continue though. That would have required stopping. :D

We each have different driving styles. Engine braking is a feature that I would pay Polaris some extra money to have. I would also willingly pay extra money to have EPS. I rode today and two trees and several large limbs had fallen on my trails. I hit a couple of limbs at speed and the impact jerked the wheel hard. As on old man, EPS would have been a big help. Engine braking is the same issue for me. My trails have a lot of terrain change with some sharp curves around trees. It was more pleasurable for an old man to ride down these inclines on a Sportsman 500 with engine braking. I never touched the brakes and never downshifted. On my terrain I was able to control the speed on all downhill slopes just by varying the amount of throttle. I cannot do that with the Ace. If I give it enough throttle to engage the clutches, I will wrap the Ace around a tree due to too much speed. Again, I would pay Polaris for both of these features. As an old man still trying to enjoy life, these features would make driving the Ace a more pleasurable experience.

I've been hauling fire wood out of some hilly terrain with a custom twin axle dump trailer. I've had loads that would slide the machine down the hills if I tried to stop and have to work the brakes to get me down the trails( with careful planning mind you).
Engine braking or a granny gear would be super.

I just got a text from one of the dealers from Georgia @ the dealers meeting tonight the 2015 ACE is being released with the 570 engine. He joking right? Anybody hearing any information coming out of the meeting tonight?
