I miss the good old days... Thinking about picking a another quad. I really wish one of the companies made a REAL 4wd sport quad. The Renegade is close but its just not fun unless its a 5 or 6 speed manual tranny (with a clutch, and lots of power)

a few of the guys have 4wd sport quads, no clutch but pretty fast regardless, i think theres a renegade, a scrambler, and a Yamaha, they get traction enough to be able to go around some of the stuff we go through but what i dont like is no fenders. they get muddier going around stuff than i do going through everything

the Banshee sucked... 2 strokes have gone as far as possible when it comes to technology, and now there r such tight regulations on em there is no point at all to ride a 2 stroke.
4 strokes have more torque, more balls, are more reliable, constant power (not surging like a 2 stroke) and arent as tiring to ride.

ive riden the fastest of the 4x4'* and they r quick for a 4wd i guess but just dont have the get up and go that i want, and no clutch means no control over rpms.

real mine use clutches!

i used to always have man. but you cant get the big twins with out the belt drive now so, i would rather have the power.

and the outlanders and renegades are way faster than you need to go in the terrain i ride on. i cant imagine wanting something faster than that.
