Which engine?

Ciao, I am new here and I live in Italy.
I have a question: in your mind which is the best engine (reliability and power) to use in a Baja race? naturally 2WD!
I mean to have an engine that give less problem than possible to gear, differential ecc.. but that can push the Rhino around the 80/85 mph for long time. (more speed no need!)

Tks!

Paris Dakar in a nigthmare for the UTV... and also for the ATV.

You must think that the Special stage of 400 km or more are not a problem... REAL problem is the trasfer from the end of the special stage and the assistence that sometimea are other 500/600 Km.
The speed average of the UTV or ATV are very low respect the cars and the bike that in the road can run at 120 km/h... With an UTV or an ATV this average are the top speed!!!

No... Dakar in my opinion is not a funny race for UTV, but we have in Europe a lots of "baja" named race that is MORE similar to a Rally (gravel road ecc...) than a Classic Desert Baja.

So think to made a Rhino as a WRC car!
