just got back from a day at lake havaZOOO...lol... arizonia, canam had a couple trailers there with mavericks to test ride in a decent course. SADLY no max 4 was present as there not yet into production until the first wave on 2 seaters come out. they will be here around may 2013. i wanted to see leg room in the max, but soon on that.

now, for the maverick... i went expencting a lot, all the hype, all the media, all the posts, everything heard and read on my mind... so i was truly expecting a big deal...

well, it lived up to that expectaion and blew it away, it was even better than i had hoped (again i speak for 2 seater only as no one has tested a 4 yet in public platform)..

i was not aware a suspension could be this nice, some special made fox shocks, oh and teh beatttery has been rlated to rear of machine. even the oem metal doors rocked!!! it is easy to convert the maverick x to a x limited, they had some that way. limited radio, gps, center dash,etc...

seriously guys, if you just think about touching the pedal its gone like a rocket, had very little heat issues, in teh desert where they had been on all day at 98 degrees. welcome releif. this is not a power steering unit, but i could not tell it as it glided pretty easy. it is easier to steer vs the commander limited non powered steering. machine is incredible, did not disappoint.

all i will say in closing, i guarantee you unless you ride one, you wont understand is power and suspensiont. i do feel it has 2 hands up on the xp, but please if you have a event near you. go ride it like you stole it and you will know then!! awesome machine. none of these words you see on forums, media, web sites can do it justice.
had a great ride!!! a couple brief videos

I watched the videos for the mav on canams site and was curious if anyone knows how they improved airflow besides the dual exhaust. Quite a jump from 86 HP to 101 HP using the same engine without some sort of mod to fuel, programming, turbo etc.. I have a 2011 X and am interested in achieving the same power of course, especially if its a simple airflow issue.

No, it has some top end engine changes also besides reducing intake and exaust restrictions....larger exaust valves and I believe re-contoured valve pockets in heads, more compression, closed loop with knock sensor, catalitic converter are the main components....would be hard and expensive to duplicate for that 16 additional HP on your Commander.

I did the Maverick test drive last weekend in Glen Helen and had a good time.

The track was flat without even one bump or jump but the pace quad was moving along at a good pace so we got to slide around a bit and feel the power.

Overall I was impressed with the Maverick and will consider one on my next SxS. Not sure when that will be at this point.

Here is a few shots of Twood "Trevin" driving.
