Default 2012 MXZ 600 ACE TNT vs Sport

I am interested in the 600 ACE engine, having a hard time deciding between a 2012 MXZ TNT 600 ACE and the 2013 MXZ Sport ACE
I see the only difference being the shocks. What is the differenece and will I really notice anything.

Thanks for any input!

The 2012 should cost you much less if you are looking to buy now. Personally I like the look of the TNT over the Sport (Black Tunnel) and the shocks are much better not to mention that the 2013 Sport only has a 1" track. No brainer in my mind if you are looking to purchase before the end of March. I was going to buy a 2013 TNT ACE only to be crushed when I saw the new sleds. What are they thinking? Let us know what you do.

Default Not much difference.

We have one of each 2010 and 2012.The TNT absorbs hard bumps smoother without the bounce but you can always upgrade the rear shock ( and the fronts if need be ). I don't notice much difference between my wifes and mine other than that. Wish I had waited to get something other than white but late season on both so I wasn't too picky...

Default Not both.

The 2012 sport is an ACE my wifes new sled has about 600 miles on it bought it a few weeks back. The TNT is mine its a 600 carb with around 2000 miles. So far so good on the ACE she loves it it's a cool machine drives like a four wheeler nice and quiet great mileage handles awesome. I love mine also best dialed in sled I've ever owned.

I have a 2011 MXZ Sport 600 Ace with 1853 miles on it with zero trouble so far ( knock on wood ).

I am getting around 27.9 mpg and that is running between 40-60 mph all day long. It it great when you fill it up after doing 180 miles and it take 6.5 Gallons. plus I can ride all day without worring about gas.

My top speed is 78 mph and that is on a flat groom trail without studs.

It is a nice little sled for trail riding.

It only has a 60 HP motor,but has plently of power for what type of riding I do.

I hope this report helps anyone interrested in getting one

Picked up the ace tnt couple weeks ago also, very pleased. It is a colder ride than my IQ (still not freezing) but i think the little knee deflectors would do the trick. MPG is crazy and the wisper of the motor is very nice.

We are done for the season. 2425 X 2 = 4850 miles.
If we both rode an ACE we would probably have $800 bucks in our pocket.
