Rhino Champ Car Race Course.

I saw this a long time ago before I bought my rhino and thought maybe during the summer (when the dunes & desert are to hot) people were switching out there shocks,suspension, wheels & tires and using there Rhino's on a road course similar to Shifter Kart racing. I think it would be a lot of fun and open the market even more.

My guess would be that the guys just did a LT kit on it and have not installed the shocks and thought it would be funny to drive it around the shop before they finish the kit. If somebody was making a road course rhino they would not want that tall ass cage on it.
Also when he drives off you can see how bad it bounces because there are no shocks. Road course cars still need suspension.

Thanks to all the hard work from Todd at www.151fab.com for building my rhino!

I was on the fence along time ago about doing a pavement race rhino for either road course or paved ovals.I was leaning more torward the oval because there was more tracks and you can run it on dirt as well. Having stagger in the suspension, stock length on the driver side and 10'' over on the passenger side, motor offset, that would have been sweet.

That would have been sweet all you need is a big parking lot and a bunch of tires or bales of hay to make a race course. I would think if people saw it they would want to try it or maybe even a combo course similar to the rally car in X games a little bit of street and drifting and a little bit of dirt with jumps.

If somebody made a road course rhino that looked like a nascar truck at the sand show I bet it would draw a lot of people/attention to there booth and make it into magazines.

Nah just smooth pavement and a couple big bags of rice from Costco. That should get them a little loose in the corners.
