Lately I've really wanted to buy a side by side/UTV type vehicle and make it street legal.
For why? What is it about the UTV platform the you like? Off-road, like a offroad/street legal hybrid?



These pictures date to, apparently, 2004. As I recall it had a top speed of 45mph and a range of maybe 20. There weren't a lot of batteries under the hood.



It had a golf cart axle in back with the motor as unsprung weight.



All this would need would be a small gas/diesel fwd added. Umm, where the batteries are.... Maybe a drivetrain like the XR-3 and batteries in a pickup bed?
