03 Ski Doo 440 Rev X for trail riding????

I am trading a dirtbike for a 2003 Ski Doo 440 Rev X tomorrow. The machine has a fresh engine, rebuilt shocks, and been trail converted. My main question is how will this machine be in the trails? It is my first snowmobile (have ridden a friends rev 600 last 2 yrs) I have heard some good and bad things about the 440's so I wanted to get everyones opinion.

My other option is to trade the 440 for a 2002 Ski Doo MXZ 800 Renegade Salt Lake City Edition with a fresh engine and clutch. Any opions would be a great help Thanks

Going to look at a 2006... - DOOTalk Forums
^^ Read through the entire thread. Should help you a lot (although you probably don't need to be this thorough in your examination of the sled, but they just cover every angle in detail)

The trail converted sled shouldn't be bad at all. The non trail converted ones are very finicky.

Race sleds are a pain in the @$$ if you want to trail ride, tend to need rebuilds a lot, some need to run race fuel depending on the compression ratio of the head, and you need to premix oil/fuel. If its trail "ready" then it should be reliable though. I say stick with the rev, just because its a rev.
when hell freezes over ill ride there to

a rev is yeah a race design sled, which makes them awsome sauce for in the mountains the rev's 440's have like 100 hp, there pretty powerful lil sleds with alotta oomph, im sure you will enjoy it, as far as the ride goes, well there kinda rough ish, theres better, but around here to me, a ski doo rev is the best, you ride trail for like 20 mins from truck, then your off in the powder
