Canam Gen2 Outty chassis Shorty VS XMR Max

Looking for opinions on the Gen2 chassis in particular the pros and cons of getting into the MAX chassis vs the shorty. Theres concerns that there is issues with the the air ride on the XMR. Really like the stock options that come with XMR but nothing that cant be added to a stock shorty. What do you guys think

My first hand opinion is that yes there is an issue with the air ride mine is in the shop as I type this with a malfunctioning air compressor, but on the other hand when the air ride is working and you have it set with the most height the xmr is unstoppable. The extra length gives you a smoother and more stable ride than the shortie on trails that have continuous mogals but it is harder to wheelie.The other issue is I have is that I feel my front springs are a little on the soft side and I am currently looking at putting spring spacers on them just to stiffen it up a little more.The bonus with getting the XMR is the rad relocate is all ready done and it comes with a larger rad.Quadingmaniac could tell you the cost of converting a shortie to factory XMR specs because he just completed his gen 2 build. good luck with you choice either way you will love it!

The shorty is way more fun tcan wheelie and rip around alot more easier than the longer base XMR i personally like my short chassie outty 1000 way more. Rad relocates and snorkles are cheap.

I agree with Tothebar that the shorty is way more funner to play with than the xmr.A few guys i know have sold their xmr and gone back to shorty frames...

I converted my gen 1 into a shorty xMR and it ended up costing more than if I just bought a xMR to start. It was nice not to have the air ride issues though.

Depends on how much you want the advantages of the longer chassis. Carrying passengers, climbing hills, or in the mud the longer chassis has the advantage. Tight trails, playing around the extra wheelbase is a disadvantage.

Intresting feedback, was just seeing if there was significant disadvantages to goin with the MAX chassis. Although the lift on the shortys is great fun, it seems to hinder the shorties when racing. They cant seem to keep the front end planted thus not putting the power to the ground. My train of though was that with a few mods you could still make the XMR wheelie. Throw on a QSC/STM, exhaust, fuel tuner, and some cams, that front end would have no choice but to go sky high. But really dont want feel like driving im school bus for the rest of the time not in a pit(%90). Also liked the tought that your warrenty on power train and axels with 30's. No passengers with how we ride lols only advantage we would be looking for is in the pits. Seems like everyone sticks with the shorties.

I like my gen 1 xmr. The air ride issues are easily fixed with 20$ worth of parts. It took a bit to get mine to wheelie but I figured it out. It just sucks to have to have a big truck or a trailer to haul it.

Those few inches of length aren't that noticeable to me, except when loading in the box of the truck, can't close the tailgate
