    96 xp vs 97 xp

    Well...I've been having a hard time finding a decent 97 xp around here. But i have found a good 96. How much of a difference are there between the 2? And how much better is one over the other? I like to whip around and play more than top speed.

    We had a 96 and then got a new 97 and I told my dad to sell the 97 because I think the 96 is a lot more fun to ride than the 97.
    He sold the 97 and got another 96.
    I still have both

    I love the 96 XP, never driven a 97 but the 96 is sooo much fun, sometimes I prefer riding it to my P-X

    With what your looking for actually the 96 is a higher topend and can be thrown around more .. The 97 is better for chop as its 4 billion times more comfortable thanx to the suspension seat .. And itll carve corners better than your dad carving a turkey on thanksgiving .. Lol
