Hello All. New to UTV's but have extensive experience with ATV's, motorcycles, Class 9 off-road cars, etc. I picked-up a 2006 Rhino 660 built by Weller Racing. It has a Rhino Mafia suspension, Gear-One rack, centerboard hub assemblies, pedal assemblies, JAZ fuel cell, Beard seats, and Weller Racing 720 cc engine. I don't think this Rhino has a stock part on it. It's been dormant for at least 3 years and needs a bunch of rear-end TLC. I've attached a pic from the rear. I'll get more pictures when I drag it out of the seller's garge. Very dusty and dirty so pardon the grungy look.

I'll have it cleaned-up and back on 4 wheels over the next month and ready for a planned trip to Sand Hollow Utah at the end of October.

My plans are to use this for trail riding and the dunes. I may race it a couple times in the SNORE series if I'm ambitious. What I need to ponder is how to add doors. Climbing through the side window and through the race net get's old real fast. I can hinge the upper roll bar but I haven't quite worked out the details of a door. The race cage is not going to be stock dimensions so aftermarket doors are not an option. However, fabricating something similar is probably what is going happen.

So, I may have some stupid questions over the next couple weeks as I go through this machine. The biggest obsticle is to get a handle on where the parts came from and determine what is stock and what is aftermarket. I have already ordered the guts to build the rear differential and various axle parts from Gear-One. I've been told this is a wicked ride
