this project is not finish yet

now from september 2011 i am doing some test, seting up shocks with some help from friends from Australia and US (thanks Phil and Sonny), making some repairs, upgrades etc

i have decided to quit from reverse gear, so i need to learn how to drive without any mistakes lol :D

when i mount other things like extra lights on front and some # in left and right windows, then a paint will come :)

i hope You like it, but if You don't - just tell me what is wrong, and i will fix it ;) or just consider to fix it :cool:

Here is what's wrong, consider remedying this issue-

Your build thread should have been started 2 years ago. I sincerely appreciate the cliff's notes version, but I would have enjoyed going through the progression of the build real time. The trials and tribulations of the build make for some good reading, and help others avoid the same mistakes you made. I'm sure you're a busy guy and all but there are a few internet fabricators out there who need to get their fix. Please consider those weary souls the next time you undertake such an endeavor.

All kidding aside, nice car. Great first post. What part of the world are you in? It looks like some fun racing going on wherever you are. Welcome to the site, you sir have a sweet ride.

Hi N8ball, thank You for post

i was wondering where tu put this post, why in progress? because it is not finished, that was main reason, but maybe moderator of this forum will move my topic to finished projects

progression in the real time is doing, but as You know for now, i was doing it from 2009 so it is going slow, now i think You are right, that should be in finished projects, because it is riding already

I am from Poland (Localisation is updated) and i am now learning how to drive it, maybe some say, that it is only 100HP, but there is a lot to learn how to drive

So thanks for the wishes :) and hello for everyone reading my words ;)

It looks like you guys have great buggy company there.:rolleyes:

01-13-2012, 03:38 PM
Hey Pytlus,

Great to see another Cudda build out there. I've been working on mine for a good two or three years now. Mine has a GSXR1000 in it, but still needs all of the accessories ..... like gas tank, radiator, shift linkage etc.. Hopefully I'll be done this winter.

Nice acceleration .. I can't hardly wait

Great videos, I liked the first one where you could see the suspension... What's the camera?


01-14-2012, 10:08 AM
camera is mini dv md 80, cheap and chinese, but You won't cry when some rock will hit it, price is from 10$
