Rev vs. ZX chassis

I have a 2001 Renegade 800 and was thinking of getting a Rev chassis Renegade. What can I expect for improvements over the ZX chassis?

I ride a 04 rev.

I found sitting and standing much better., i feel more like the sled and less like a rider hanging on.

When hitting jumps or bumps the rev lands so much nicer and with a better feel.
big air, it lands flat not like the others that come down on the rear idlers.

The chassis is stiff and the skiis stay down in the trails, easy to pass the older rides in corners.

I had an 00 MXZ 600, then upper to a modified 00 MXZ 700.
Loved the sleds..especially the 700...but was hard for me to throw around when off trail and mountain riding (not as strong upper body as the guys). So decided to try the REV..even tho I am not overly fond of its looks.

LOVED the REV in the mountains and elsewhere last year...that major soreness in the back and thighs with the mountain trip was almost non-existent with the REV. ALso alot eaier for me to toss around and control in the powder.

For me, the REV is great......

Im only 17 and have had many an experiences on snowmobiles. But i had a 2002 mxz600 and i just ordered a 05 RevX 600 H.O and cant wait to ride it. I know you need to be more attuned to the machine.
But the result is 100 times better, cant wait to hit the moguls.

Dang dude, so are you saying that when you were 14 you had a brand new $6000.00 sled? Thats pretty impressive, you must have had one hell of a paper route! Not saying I dont believe you, just dont see that very often. What was your first sled?
