Where are you located? And were you looking for a built frame? A roller? looking to fabricate one from scratch? From plans?

Tut's single seaters are sweet...look light n nimble...but all the ones I've seen on here are besides Tut's personal are two seaters. The difference between the two is 10". If you can get your hands on a two seater, how about a wide and roomy single seater?

I love in az but am willing to travel a roller would be nice but frame and suspension would be nice

I did a lot of research on single seat buggies and decided that Protodie was the right choice for my needs, not to mention great service and support. Call me biased since I bought the XK1000, but that my two cents. Do your homework and talk to the builders, that will tell you a lot.

Rorty? RORTY Ultralite Dirt Buggies | Dirt Buggies, Mini Buggies, Superlite Buggies, Off-Road Buggies, Sand Rails, Off-Road Karts – By Atkinson Race Technology Pty Ltd (http://atkinsonracetechnology.com/) I think they probably look the closest to tuts design... well they have a bit of that baja look to them.

Remember that looks aren't everything though, performance is where it counts. I have heard the Rorty plans are really good and that they handle the rough stuff well. I built an Edge barracuda, and my only problem with it is that I am too tall to fit comfortably inside the original design. Other than that, it flies, handles the rough stuff well, and has great handling.

Buying from a "known commodity" is worth it weight in gold... I have seen lots of cars/frames that look really nice, until something breaks... then you find out they are no longer in business, the part that broke is a one-off machined masterpiece made out of unobtainium etc. These type of problems just kill the enthusiasm... just my 2 cents worth.

02-11-2014, 06:50 AM
I will agree with Glamisman. Easy to buy/find/replace parts are so much better. Being across the country and needing a lathe to make a $25 part sucks. KISS

BTW. No way I'd build a 1 seater unless it was just for racing.

I have this one for sale. I realize it's a complete buggy but there's nothing to do but fill it with gas and have fun. I think if you look around on the web you'll find that it's a very solid design and that this buggy in particular has been fully tested ;)

This looks real cool. It is sorta Tut-esque. Was the frame built by him? It's a steal for what it is and what is being asked. You got any specs like wheel base, track width and travel numbers?

I want a 2-seater. If find a frame I like, or build one. I think I'm going to use the engine and suspension ect from my single seater. If that happens, my frame is going on here first. But that's not going to happen for maybe a year.

Can I fit a hyubusa 1300 in that frame

mike burnett
02-11-2014, 04:36 PM
The width is within two inches of Tuts frame there is more than enough room to easily fit a hyabusa motor with tons of room to spare .I would not go any wider for handling reasons to wide and the car will walk from side to side at high speed over whoops wide cars are a sand brag thing it doesn't work on hard pack. Tut used to live across the street from me . His brother and I have built off road wining race cars for about four years I thought I would build this for myself but got back into kart racing so don't have time for it

02-11-2014, 04:49 PM
Paul, mine isn't a tut. The guy who bent my tubes is no longer in business and I can't even remember his name. It shipped to my door in 2003 all pre-bent in a box that was about 9'x3'x1'. I've changed the design so much there's not a whole lot that you can recognize as original anymore. We'll just call it a Sasser frame at this point.

Paul .....grab it!

Can you guys send some pics to 480-204-9812

02-12-2014, 06:29 AM
What's your budget? I could sell you one of my sxs frame kits and you could just install one seat. It's 74" wide and a little over 10 foot long with regular dirt tires...

Mike Burnett, I'm really liking the look of that frame. You have a 2 seat model of that guy?

Sorry No two seater its custom built one off scaled down version of a class 13 car we built for somone

02-12-2014, 06:24 PM
That's a beautiful frame. I really like the lines and the fab work looks top notch. It should sell pretty quick. Just out of curiosity, how wide are the tatum hubs from the inner bearing surface to the wheel face? If they are 2.25" like CNCs and setup for a combo snout, I might be interested.

Paul where in az. are you located at
