PM sent!!! We were out of town on Friday.....sorry!!!
And no...our rear drive system is completely custom from solid chromoly which is then hardened and splined to fit a Gorilla CV......we tried to find something already in production that would work and wouldn't cost us $4k.....but we couldn't find anything. That's why we just had our own setup made. We also wanted this to be able to fit into any rhino that uses a regular aftermarket suspension kit - no trailing arms to deal with or anything. The only part in the rear that needs to be custom is the axle shafts - those are a different length than the normal +6 kits......and we only used Gorilla axles with our kit, because we haven't had any of those axles fail.
We really don't do the whole swap at our shop - it's lengthy and time consuming and we are set up for building up rhino motors....but we have started selling some of our rear drive kits to people who can do the install themselves......our rear drive was holding up really well, so we are more comfortable with other people using them now.
i'd also like to see pics of the rear drive installed or something different then the first prototype pics you posted. i was hoping you would have had one of the rhinos at that corr race in lancaster we saw you at.
found this the other day which looked quite interesting.
anyone seen these before? nice and compact, pushed by a turbo busa motor. made by transworks
what motor are you running?? i was thinking the same thing awhile back with a BMW motor since they are shaft driven, however i believe the motor sits normal not sideways (seems like the exhaust would get uncomfrtable for a passenger if the motor is sideways... no?.
cbr1000rr, inline four. the exhaust is actually next to me. its a chain drive normally, but i have an adapter to convert to a toyota driveshaft flange, yota 8.8 irs 3rd member is about 9 inches wide. much narrower than that bus contraption. and we all know longer axles equal more travel . if you wrap the headers and build a firewall with that insulated under hood dynomat stuff i figure u wont catch on fire.
oh yeah my bottom rail width is 66 inches. so uhh... the header isnt all that close to me. its actually 3 seater. side by side by side. baby seat in the middle for my boy.
