Dealer and Cat Rep said it's normal and has to do with the engine braking somehow. Low range it is barely noticeable but high range it is quite distinct.
Yes, if you are going to barely push the throttle and go slow, put it in LOW. If you want to start in HI, give it gas and it wont lurch and will just go. But if you are in HI and barely give it gas, it will jerk. Its about the clutching and engine working together.

Talked to my dealer about the turf mode and he said that in testing they had havocs set up this way, but they were breaking stuff in the rear end with bump up in horsepower over the stampede so they had to switch it to a spool type rear end.

I liked the HAVOC X.

The seating position was not optimal for me.

It is an incredible machine. I had an incredible deal set with the closest dealer which is about 45 minutes away.

I didn't take it not for one particular reason, but a combination.

Seating position
It's too tall to fit in my garage
It's too wide to fit on my trailer
Dealer support in my area isn't very strong.

To be honest I'm not overly impressed with overall durability of any manufacturers out there. Not in the SXS market anyway. I've had incredible experience with quads so far.

I called the dealer and asked if we could work a similar deal on a wildcat sport limited. It's 65 hp vs 100, I'm confident that would work. It fits where I need it to and the style is more in line with the pure sport/non utility that I want. Full doors, EPS, etc. All the necessities.

The price went from $14,000 for the HAVOC X to 17,500 for the Wildcat Sport. Took a little wind out of my sail and I'm kinda back to square one for now. The deal on the Havoc is pretty impressive as far as I'm concerned but I'm not in a hurry, and I don't want to settle if I'm sending that kind of money.

The fact that there are very few used SXS available (especially private owner) in my region isn't making my quest any easier, so for the moment I'm just settling in and keeping an eye on craigslist.

I checked them out. Temporarily out of stock for the sport model since last week. I could still call them though.
