Angry i was looking at this rhino...

if you remember my post last week, i was looking at this LT rhino..

★Sick Yamaha Rhino★

it was the one of 3 i had planned on checking out and possibly buying this weekend.

being the pc/myspace dork i am... i decided to punch in the guys name selling the rhino into myspace.. try and find his profile and see if there were anymore pictures... i matched an email address to a myspace profile using the same cragislist email used to post the ad... needless to say this is what i found

looks like he hit hard and rolled it,the pics you had look like before it was wrecked. there were alot of other choices people put up to look at

I'm stayin neutral here, but you DID report kyle's post to admins.
that might work at rf, but not here, not even if johnny asked me to remove
kyle's post would I do it.that is on principal alone.

Not an unusual kind of break, however the roll and the amount of damage from that I really think is extensive. The frame could be bent weak steering rack, or the mount points of the A arms could be weakend. If you look at the second pic he has not reinforcement on the frame....just my 2 cents

95% of the custom rigs you find are going to have been yardsaled at one time or another....If you worreid about the integrity of the car take it to a reputable rhino shop for an inspection.

Does this car look like its been yardsaled?



NO?



How about now?????? Just because it got wadded doesnt me its not solid Matter a fact doesnt mean its not more solid...Just do your research

I just talked to the guy... he doesn't know i have seen these pictures..

He told me the only thing that has gone wrong is a stock spindle broke, he had to replace the steering rack. He also told me the reason he took the roof off was it made too much noise.

The picture would show, the roof was trashed.

So is this just a trashed spindle and a roll??


you think with a little money this thing could be bullet proof?

BiggJim is right...as usual(dont let it go to your head Biggpimp) lots of custom rhinos have been rolled..and lots of times they get "rebuilt" better than before(second chance thing..I guess) just take the time to inspect it ..a arm mount location, drive it see if it pulls, ask questions you already know the answer too and see if he's a straight shooter or he's shinin you...if your a driver chances are you'll roll it once or twice too...quite a few on here are in the "Rog and the Tumblers Crew'
like me....
before the roll...

after the roll...


and fixed...


when mine happened it gave me a chance too improve a few of the things I didnt like...and I think I now have a better car because of it...

If you live in Vegas and need a General Contractor...call Manning Construction @ 497-5127

If he lied to you, and didnt disclose that it had been crashed like that (even though he didnt know you saw those pictures), I would probably shy away from it if it were me. What else isnt he telling you?

i agree if he's lying to you then fuck him, you can get better deals from honest sellers right now. if he's gonna be shady then its his loss
