yes, the rancher 400at's were very problematic. not many of them around anymore. the rubicon trannys are infinitely variable, hydraulic units that have been hailed as the smoothest tranny of any atv ever offered. it also allows you to "shift" between 5 preset points that mimics the es mode on other hondas. rincons are okay, just geared more towards sporty performance, than hard labor and pulling. not much difference between the manual and es trannys and gears, just the means of shifting them.
