I agree about the 850 but my buddy with his Scrambler 1000 had same issue as I did just not as extreme. The 850 beat both of us to 300'. It just launches better less wheelie
The front end lifting can be controlled with shock adjustments in the rear so there is no need to lift the front end under full acceleration unless that is part of the fun......

SO is it a softer adjustment that would keep the front end down? I would imagine soft would absorb the energy and keep the front down?

The shock needs to be set on the softer side to absorb the instant weight transfer. Each is a little different based upon rider weight as well so there isn't a standard setting to fit all but you can adjust a little at a time until you have a happy medium.

The Polaris seems to build the power slower, but smoother, the Rotax hits you hard. This is what I got from those that have rode both.

in the video the Polaris was kicking dirt from wheel spin and still beat the ham....there was that much more power to break ground and still pull ahead....once the tires caught it was good night Irene

Were those Rene 800 or 1k in the vid? I have ridden my buddy's 2014 Rene 1k xxc and it hits a LOT harder than my 850. Might be the engine or the clutching (doubt it on the latter) but it is stout on the bottom end. Too had the Rotax can't be shoe horned into the xp chassis
