Polaris claimed that the 2011's get 30% better fuel mileage than previous years, while making 1-2 more hp, which proved to be true yesterday. My 2010 2 seater used 2 more gallons than even the 2011 4-seater.

On open rough trails I had a blast with the 4 seater. it handles amazing. soaks up the bumps and corners awesome. I dont think it would be as good in the tight technical trails but I dont really care for that. (I have the buggy for tight technical wheeling) I wanted this for go fast destination wheeling just like Saturday. and it was a blast. They made michigan trails fun again. Nothing better than riding from town to town and stoping in between. I cant wait to get it street legal.

add a turbo kit to that 4 seater and the fun factor will go even higher.

that would be a waste...how fast to you want to go in the trails? I can tell you it is plenty fast enough for the trails and the only spot it lacks is the wide open flat stuff, so its not a big deal...plus stock motors have less problems, at least that is what my uncle said

for added power, not speed. The 4 seater could really use the new 900cc motor. With 4 people it's a dog.

The 4 seater kept up with a two seater in an open field oval "ish" race just fine, 2 seater had 2 guys, 4 seater had 4, slightly slower yes, but it held its own pretty good.
