I do pretty extensive off/rough roading in Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park in the summer. Not designed for racing, the highish center of gravity would be bad. Just means I'm extra cautious if I hit an unexpected area when I have to do any rock climbing.

I've seen a couple race back in the day on one of those baja kinda deals, but they're built for trails and rocks. The focus is on the slow torque, locker kinda driving.

Pikes Peak, South Park, and South Platte Ranger districts in Colorado (aka the Front Range) they put out MVUM/MVTMs every year of which forest service roads are open, but for some areas those roads may not have been checked by Rangers or anyone else in a few years, and you get impassable/nearly impassable ones sometimes. Lots of fun, but can be tricky/scary. Going over Topaz Mountain in 2019, we got to a point where the road had completely washed out at the bottom of a gulley and I had to spend an hour making it passable as there wasn't a way to get turned around.

We just call that driving in the back country on seasonal roads  why so serious?

I remember taking on sand dunes in an old beater fakewoodie when we were high af as kids. Good times.
