About 95 Yards.

We will be in Scottsdale in Feb. for a horse show. If anyone wants to show off what they have, I have not even seen a really tricked out Rhino in person. You guys are my sole outlet as of now.

I took it out to Johnson Valley this weekend and Holy crap is this thing bad ass. Crusing thru decent size whoops and sand washes at 50mph. My top speed on the lake bed was 77MPH at 9000RPM (red line). I weighed my car at 1620lbs with me and the wife in it. 65% rear 35% front. I changed my springs to 175lb front and 500lb rear and it was still a little to soft to jump.

Just do the valving on the shocks and you will be good.

I did the math and it called for 650lb spring in the rear. I might go to 550-or 600 first. I does need some rebound valving the the rear too.

the new yamaha vmax engine would be even sicker than a the honda puts out more power and torque than all the other crotch rockets available even the new busa
