In the classic auto world, kit cars are an inexpensive way for you to own your dream car. That same concept is now available in the side-by-side world in the form of a Predator X-18 Kit. For $17,000 you get everything needed to start building your own long travel, two-seat race car, pre runner or duner. If the price seams steep, you should know that a fully built race Rhino or Polaris RZR can cost upwards of $40,000. This machine is designed form the ground up for strength, safety and most of all fun not as a utility machine. Complete cars retail for $28,000 and come with a 2.2l Chevy Ecotec engine, mated to an easy to use CVT transmission. This same engine is found in many Chevy passenger cars and is fast becoming a favorite engine for many racing disciplines. Look for a test of a completed Predator car in an upcoming issue. If you can’t wait that long, log on to www.predator-offroad.com or call them at (951) 259-3339.
