    After searching for quite awhile... i finally scored the rear spool/knuckles/hubs off of an outlaw, which is the same setup i have on my buggy. And way cheaper than i paid for mine. Good stuff.

    I also have the tubing ready to roll.

    Next up... motor and clutch setup. I found a gx630 locally for 850. Brand new. Might have to jump on that. Problem is... i was hoping to put reverse on his buggy, which means i have to stay under 18 hp.

    Anyways.

    I have also been designing in sketchup. I think i have the design down to the final rendering. Basically, an upgraded version of mine. Lol

    Let the fun begin.

    I have more, but I lost track of what is what. I can just dump them on here if you want, but I doubt I can figure out where they go in the thread.

    I still have reloaded my BT, but will be soon.

    "I still have reloaded my BT, but will be soon. "

    This is supposed to say, "still have not"

    I'll throw a few more up and hopefully I'll have the new version soon and we can have a go at it again.

    Part 2 update:


    Hoops 2:



    Size Reference 1:


    Size Reference 2:


    Frame with Seats:



    As you can see... I could have gone A LOT lower with it, but my wife and I would not have been able to ride in it. As it is now, I will be scrunching down during testing. The frame is 2.5 inches lower than my buggy... and it is 9 inches wider than mine.


    Today, i will be working on front bracing and the finishing the lightbar.
    that's all... thanks for looking.
