    I really like the looks of these buggies. Have you ever considered a big quad engine instead of an industrial?

    Thanks, yes I have considered quad engines in this frame.
    Also 4 stroke snowmobile engines. There is room to do either
    we did a 450 quad engine in our XK450 model and it performed great

    in our gallery scroll to the green and black XK450 album

    Sooo nice!!

    Do you always use a swingarm rear? How much different does it feel compared to independent?

    Thanks,
    The MXT, FXT, XK450 models have swing arm style rear suspension
    the DXT, XK1000 ,SS1000, SS630R models all have dual A arms on the rear

    Dual A arm is a better ride, but swing arm is more budget friendly
