Default 2020, decisions decisions

Im planning on putting in my snowcheck this week, but im having a hard time with picking, 154 mountain cat or hardcore? Has anyone seen the silver on the mountain cat? How does it look in person? I was thinkiing hardcore, but its about a 10 lb weight penalty, is it worth it? Ill be putting running boards and probably a rear bumper on it anyway. So then it comes down to shocks. And i think i like the harcore colors better.

I like the grey better then the silver. I saw all three models in person. HC if I was checking this year.

Make the decision based on your riding style and the mechanical features of the sled not the color.

If I wasn't so far behind the 8 ball on this Axys I'd be ordering a Hardcore. I am very impressed with the Alpha.

The biggest thing will be deciding on shocks. Do you want air or coilovers? Hardcore looks better imo but I could ride the other if I wanted floats. I ordered a hardcore. If they are 10 pounds heavier you won't notice it guaranteed. If anything, my bet is the hardcore rides lighter from the factory. Coilovers are more linear. The tail section is also supposed to be a thicker gauge on the hardcore which seems needed.

I feel like the mountaincat is the equivalent of the beefy Polaris model. maybe all that is needed for most?
hardcore if you're hardcore

Is the rear tunnel section beefed up the HC? Depending on how (if) they did it (possibly irrelevant depending on the rear bumper you go with) that could be worth the upgrade IMO.

Either way if it were me I would probably go with the HC for the coil overs, just never really been impressed with air shocks. Color to me should never be a deciding factor in a sled BUT I see no shame in paying a few hundred bucks extra for the color you want. LOL man did the "I'm not buying an Alpha because of the 250sq inches of purple wahhh, wahh, wahh" guys bug me, and I thought they were ugly BUT GET OVER IT. If you're buying it to look at it I can think of a lot better things to spend your money on

Glad to see some guys jumping ship. Looking forward to hearing some reviews next season.
