    All right, time to start a thread on this one.

    This build is the 3rd generation of our single seat race buggy.

    Lots of time in design making tweaks, changes for improved performance and tuning. Mostly more tunable.

    This one has a few more inches of head room in the cockpit than our previous buggies.

    This is the single seat version we plan on releasing plans for after it is built & tested.

    I am building this one for a customer and it will have a 2008 GSXR 1000 in it plenty of power

    Also an RPM gear box 5.4:1 ratio

    The rear engine cradle uses the same plates as our new 2 seater, but has a narrower mounting. But pretty much the same.

    nuff talk, here are some pics

    Looks like it is itching to race off the table. Love the engine cradle. I'd like to do that for my pending single seater using a CBR 1000.

    Will you be selling that as a separate component?

    I like that gearbox mount. Are you gonna run a input brake on the gearbox?

    Thanks
    Not on the upper shaft of the gear box.
    I am making rotors that will have the same pattern as the 930 cv's.
    They will bolt between the cv & the boot.

    Down the road I may run outboard brakes at the wheels, when I go differential and street legal.

    The engine cradle plates are slotted and will have turn buckles for the RPM gear box. This can be used as a tensioner and to avoid half links when changing sprocket sizes.
    There will also be an idler sprocket chain tensioner on this. Same one we have been using for years.
    This will add a quick easy chain tension adjustment.
