where to buy rack & pinion?
would bring good 11' Mini Sand Rail Rack & Pinion Steering Unit (http://www.desertkarts.com/item80857.ctlg?)
how long it will take delivery over there in Finland?
whether something still cheaper?

Hey,

Why all polished? It looks great but wow what a lot of work:p
Do you have the original Edge Barracuda plans? I think that the 11" rack is to short. I use a 14" for my Badland ST2 build. Maybe you can ask it on the forum from The Edge what the normal size is for the rack?

I bought my rack also online, but at AIRCOOLEDENTHUSIAST.COM (http://www.aircooledenthusiast.com/)
I live in The Netherlands (also Europe) and the time to deliver took 2weeks.


Good luck with your build, keep us posted! :D

Hey! You'll find that 954 is a real BEAR!![smilie=ecstatic.gi:
I built one before I found this site and the info on here sure would have saved time and MONEY!
But IT's worth it when that monster fires up and rols the first time![smilie=jumping.gif]

CheckEbay if its available,I bought a rack out of a dirt track car and it's pretty tough and got it for a good price.

looks great and the slightly smaller scale is a great idea. should make a super buggy.

You should really minimize that pipe [smilie=ecstatic.gi: It looks so small ;) What do you have more in your garage? I see there's another buggy

Wow that thing looks evil with this color:cool:

Is it true that your ladder is hanging through by the weight of your engine, or does it just look that way on the photo?

I think your rear upper A arm should be bended already :D

Wow! Not sure how I missed this build. You did a great job of remodeling the baracuda. I really like the smaller size of it.
