Teebones Rotax Swap by Magnum Offroad

Last saturday morning I left the Bay Area at 1 am. In the back of my truck was my pretty much stripped Rhino. I drove straight through to Oceanside Home of Magnum Offroad. Dano met me there at 8 am helped me unload my Rhino. The motor compartment was empty in the bed sat an 800 Rotax with less than 50 miles on it. The drive lines, wiring harness and exhaust just about filled the bed. We talked a little bit about the build then went for a couple of hot laps in his newest rotax swap....all I can say is awesome!!!! It was quite a bit more than I expected. I looked the build over and was very impressed with the quality. These guys are Craftsmen I am very confident that my Rhino is in good hands. I drove back home 420 miles with the biggest smile.
I checked out all the Rhinos in his shop and couldn't help but notice all had the Magnum Offroad Long travel suspension with the Fox shocks. Well as you might guess there was no way I could bring my new Rotax Rhino home without sporting a new suspension. Again I was totally impressed with the quality.
As I write this they are changing out the through shaft....getting ready to drop the motor in. This is going to be a great season
I will be posting some Pictures

Very cool, When do you pick it up back up? It's a great idea you when long travel with that motor. Other wise it might hurt when you come flying up on those whoops.
