Default Max or no Max?

Can anybody tell me handling differences between the max and the regular outlanders? Also if the 800 is better then the 650 if you do get the max version? I am looking for something that will be easy to get around in the woods to pull out logs, put in food plots, trail riding, and ice fishing. Can anybody tell me what the turning radius for each version would be? Thanks for all your help.

The max is 8" longer than the standard, it is used for two people, great quad, but longer turning radius. That's usually not a problem, but nevertheless, it's a bigger circle.

If you're on good traction surfaces most of the time, not wet leaves, snow, mud, then you would be able to use the 800. If slick, a 500 will spin the tires, leaving 300 cc's unusable.

If you ride steep rocky trails, not slick or muddy, but good traction, then you will be able to use all 800 cc's. Feel the heat!

I have found 26" Terracross R/T's on 14" wheels good for traction on most surfaces, not deep mud of course.

If you think you manuever the wheelbase of the max around in the woods, then I wouldnt even consider the standard model.
