Off road race cars are built for speed and agility, and are often used in races such as the Baja 1000 and Dakar Rally. They are often modified versions of existing cars, and have specialized equipment such as roll cages, suspension systems, and powerful engines. Though they can also be purpose-built from the ground up, with space frames and composite bodies that only superficially resemble a production car. No matter what they look like on the outside, though, all off road race cars share one thing in common: they're built for speed and adventure.
The most important factor in an off road race car is its suspension system. This is because the car will be subject to a lot of bumps and jolts during the race, and needs to be able to handle them without breaking down. The suspension system needs to be able to soak up the impact of the bumps and keep the car stable, while still being light enough so that it doesn’t add too much weight.
High performance engines allow off road race cars to achieve high speeds and navigate through rough terrain. Large tires provide good traction on loose surfaces. The tires may also be studded to provide additional grip. The suspension system is designed to absorb the shocks of driving over rough terrain. The suspension system may also be adjustable to allow the driver to modify the ride height of the car.
There are several classes of off road race cars, each with their own set of rules and regulations. The most common classifications are:
- Unlimited open-wheel, buggy, or truck.
- Limited production vehicles such as the Volkswagen Beetle or Suzuki Samurai
- 4x4 Jeep-style vehicles
- Mid-sized truck such as the Ford Ranger
- Open-wheel desert race car
