Category: Off Road Vehicles
Cars for the adventurous at heart. Off road vehicles are not only more powerful, they are able to handle much more rough terrain than your standard paved roads. We explore the different types of off road vehicles, their uses, modifications, and even repairs. Whether you are into RVs, trucks, SUVs, or any other type of off-road vehicles, this is the place to look. An off-road vehicle, also known as an overland vehicle or an adventure vehicle, is any vehicle that can drive both on and off a paved or gravel surface. Large tires with deep, wide treads, flexible suspension, and even caterpillar tracks are common characteristics. Tractors, forklifts, cranes, backhoes, bulldozers, and golf carts are all examples of off-highway vehicles that do not travel on public streets or highways. Because of their adaptability, off-road vehicles have a devoted following. Off-road vehicle racing is a part of a variety of motorsports. These vehicles are most commonly used for sight-seeing in locations where there is no pavement. Access to trails and forest roads is made possible by the employment of vehicles with higher clearance and traction. This makes sense as these type of roads are usually rough. Off-road vehicles must have certain features in order to be able to drive off the beaten path: They require low ground pressure to avoid sinking into soft ground, ground clearance to avoid becoming tangled up in obstructions, and they need to maintain their tires or tracks on the road to prevent losing traction. Wheeled vehicles do this by combining a good mix of big or extra tires with high and agile suspension. Wide tracks and supple suspension on the road wheels help tracked vehicles achieve this. The decision between wheels and tracks is based on cost and appropriateness. Producing and maintaining a monitored drivetrain is more costly. Wheeled drivetrains are less expensive and provide a higher peak speed.
