First i'd like to say a big HELLO to all of you.Because i'm new here.
I'm 17 y/o from Estonia :) And i ride pitbikes and i love all sports that are engine and petrol related [smilie=ecstatic.gi:
So i have this idea to start a single seater buggy build (planning to build this with my grandpa),for cruising around my village and racing on gravel.
And here are the questions :
Is it possible to use a quad swingarm for rear wheels attachment and brake system and so on..?
Will a Honda Cr250F engine would be powerful enough to make me (~80 kg) and my buggy go about 80 km/h ?
What tubing is the best? I hear thet the round tubing is better but what should be the measures on that pipe?
And can i use quad wheels on buggy? Because i can get a set from my friend for ~60 euros.

Welcome to the sight : Do a search if I remember the swing arm thing has been done . I wouldnt do it for a buggy. ATV tires are just fine for a buggy . But it sounds like ya need to do some searchin and lookin at other treads that would fit your needs.as far as the best build for you

Welcome to the site. Tons of info here but glad you started the research first rather than having to remake it.
