Appaloosa DC-05 Sandstorm

One of Appaloosa's latest works: a small dune buggy entered for the Baja 3000. It has a 3.4 liter V6 with a maximum horsepower of 310 at 7,200 RPM. >:]

 

It got a number of gold medals from other off-road races, though, one in one of the scariest off-road races in existence - the Annual San Cascavel Off-Road Race (ASCOR). It's in Argentina. Go there if you got the huevos! :D

 

This is my first actual TT to feature working, posable steering. not to mention the T-bars on which the steering is mounted doubles as a suspension! (non-working, sadly. ;P) Happy, Sharpy? :D

 

Enjoy :)
