in my experience the sport style awd/4wd quads are good for sport. However if you hunt, carry coolers, etc, they are pointless. A utility quad will run just as fast and can be just as fun and they will carry your stuff. I always say price stuff and see if it is better to buy the base and add power steering and other "essential" items. Most ATV manufacturers are hard pressed to warrant any breakage. I run a shop and see so many guys with new machines that were not covered under warranty for mornonic reasons.
