I'm new to Can Am too. I just took delivery of a new Limited. But my purpose is much different than yours. I want to do "sedate" Colorado trail riding with my wife and friends. Reliability and smooth ride were important to me. I won't be doing more power modifications. I will install a winch "lift limit switch" so my winch won't be stretching my wire cable every time I lift the snowplow.
When and if it is time to sell my Can Am, it will be one that was "only driven to church on Sundays", a lightly used machine. I'm too old for full throttle in the mud pits.
