Polaris Scrambler

Any information i could get comparing the 500 4x4 or the 400 4x4 would be great. Acceleration? Top speed? Pulling power? smoothness?...ect

The 400 is about 3 quads quicker in a drag race, and is about 4 mph faster in top speed. The 400 has more hop up potential as well. I'd get the 400 if I had a choice. They are both very reliable, but almost everything I get I modify in some way, so I'd go with the 400 2 stroke.

Re: Polaris Scrambler

We have the 500 Scrambler and it's great. Keep in mind -- the 500 is four stroke and the 400 is a two stroke -- 2 different kind of beasts! We enjoy the 500 for all around fun and power without the hassle, but for more serious hop ups and hard riding go with the 400. We are adding a clutch kit and pipe to the 500 and rumor has it will give us the extra grab at the end for climbing. I've got no problem as is, but I'm only 150 pounds, my husband is 220 and sometimes he needs a little more on step dune climbing.

Good luck! [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Polaris Scrambler

I have a modified 98 400 Scrambler which is a very drastic difference from the 500 so if your talking modified then there is no comparison. You can also putt around all day on a modified 400 w/o fouling plugs like I do riding my little kids around the yard very slowly. If you open it up it really pulls your arms. It's accelerates like a 4wd Banshee if you want it to. Now in days you can get allot of modified parts for the 400 used & cheap. Let me know if your interested in anything. Check out the modification pics of mine below.

Re: Polaris Scrambler

So the 400 does not sacrafice any drivability or smoothness with it being a 2 stroke? even after modification? Is there any advantage to the 500?
