We took it out to 5 Mile today. All I can say is UNBELIVABLE!!! I've never seen anything that
can take the whoops like this thing. It made the Rhino feel like a POS. 40+ mph over the shitty
whoops by the bathroom trail. So smooth. Tried it on the Rhino, had to keep it about 5 mph and
bottoming out the whole time. The videos don't do it justice. Power is okay. The handling is
incredible.



My son just about rolled it here. I wish I would have got a photo of his face.



Trying out it's rock crawling ability without a rock.



Nice day, cool, but no rain. Not much dust either.

I think I once advised you to look more at the utility side of sidexsides,
I was wrong. I couldn't get anyone to ride in the Rhino after they had
been in the Wildcat. I can see why. I still can't believe the stuff it absorbed
without transferring it to the passengers.

So how much do you want for the Rhino?

The Rhino is being banished to the lake. It will spend the rest of it's life in
quiet semi retirement. The performance piston and cam did make it
run nice.

So...What we have concluded here is, good suspension makes a major difference. Hmmm....
