Two Seat Rear Engine Sand Car
Jess Motorsports Off-Road

Jess Motorsports - R2x Holeshot
R2x Holeshot from Jess Motorsports Off-Road

Wish list for new sand car:

  • Two seats

  • Rear engine V8

  • Make it nimble

  • Make it stable

  • Able to pull wheelies, without being too light up front

  • Smooth ride

Jess Motorsports Off-Road took that wish list and produced the super clean car you see here.  

Jess Motorsports is located in Northern California and custom builds each car to their customers' specifications. They start with a base chassis, but allow customers to shorten or stretch the wheelbase, and tailor certain other part of the chassis to meet their customer's desires.

The result in this case is a two seat, rear engine sand car that sports a 500 HP LS2, a 117 inch wheelbase and an extra-wide stance.

The R2x has a very wide stance that helps make the relatively short wheelbase feel very stable.

Cab forward design helps balance the two seat chassis
The cab forward design helps move weight forward for better balance.

Front Arms with Fox Internal Bypass Shocks
Up front, the dual rate 2.5" x 12" Fox internal bypass shocks are sloped inward and raked back
for a very clean look. The front suspension shock angle allows a 12 inch shock to obtain 28 inches of travel. The end result is a plush ride and a car that can jump.

Rear A-Arm Design
The R2X Holeshot features a rear a-arm design with Fox triple bypass and 2 1/2 inch 
coilover springs. Their rear a-arm design allows the upper and lower a-arm to travel in the same plane making it easier on CVs while minimizing axle plunge to around 3/4 of an inch. It also allows full adjustment of toe and camber and has less than a degree of total camber gain through the 26 inches of travel.

The design for the adjustable HID light rack is very slick.
Not only are they mounted aft of the driver to reduce glare, but
they can fully retract out of the way.
