I have been tossing around the idea of getting a new sled, and am probably gonna pull the trigger next year. Im trying to decide between a M8 and a crossfire 8. (somewhere 08-10) I am 19, 5'7, 160 lbs, and currently drive a 03 f7. I run my sleds forever, my F7 has 18,000 on it, and before that I had a 94 EXT with 23,000. I do mainly trail and road riding, taking it very easy on my sled. I am honestly only interested in a long track because I like the looks,I wont do much playing in the deep powder. . I would perfer something with ACT drive. I know neither of these sleds would have as much as my f7 because of the HP-weight ratio, but I dont want to downgrade to something where theres going to be a noticeable power difference. for this reason im a little scared of the geared down M? how does the rider positioning differ from an F7 on both? alot of my miles are put on up in onterio ona hard pack trail, would a deep lug M track make a rougher ride? looking for like a 141 track, does anyone have any experience with both or either sled and have an opinion? thx for the help.
