I didnt say you had to get one of these, but check out craigslist before you buy new.

They are both junk. But of the two the Joyner is less junk. Still Chinese junk, but not as bad as the no name BMS.

If I were you I would forget you saw those and go for one of these....

Rhino

or one of these...

RZR

You've already said you have a budget of over 10,000... either of these would be a much better option.

except that those look like they cant do much of anything and if i wanted the rhino to look anything like the joyner id have to put another like 2000 into it.


also, the joyner is made in arizona, and assembled in china. there is a difference.

as for budget i dont have more than 10k. i can get the joyner for 8k. and sooner is better. i like the look and feel of the joyner. the bms is damn close, and im no a serious racer or anything like that. id rather just goof around and trail than hit jumps. the places i go are everywhere BUT glamis nowadays because glamis is overun by irresponsible drunken teenagers. because its the "Cool" thing now. so id rather just go to pine valley. mccain. or ocitillo.

if i had the money of course i would have gotten a rhino. but id get one from motorworld with the kits already put on it. might still be a possibility.
