But none of them have posted on MBN :confused: .SO. lets see some picts of yer awsume TAZ cars and dont be shy . We need somthin goin on in our section other than Vegas RZR three year old tread. Hell I belive he sold his quite a while ago.....

You asked! - after 13 years of playing in a Taz I was bound to end up with a few pix

My original Taz (Chassis #5, 3rd one runing)
http://yellowdogracing.com/deztaz/dezairlrg.jpg

Wolf in sheep's clothing - first race, the car wasn't complete.
http://yellowdogracing.com/deztaz/snow29.jpg

Mexico race with the 800 in it (and the last time it ran).
http://yellowdogracing.com/deztaz/mexicostart.jpg

First race with the 1000 Triple (the engine was a great one)
http://yellowdogracing.com/deztaz/Rockypoint/frontrockypnt.jpg

http://yellowdogracing.com/deztaz/Rockypoint/fullthrottle.jpg

Snowflake with the new paint job (I always hated this paint job. Flames belong on drag race cars)
http://yellowdogracing.com/deztaz/Snowflake2002/side1.jpg

How to not finish a race

On the way to first place in Mexico

Three wheeler Deztaz?

Race ready

And of course, a little flight time from last time at the dunes

I picked this up a few months ago. From what I was told it is one of the first ones made. It was built a little longer for a guy who was 6'8". It has the Arctic Cat 1000cc triple.

One of the owners was paralyzed so he had the cage modified so he could have his crane lift him in.

This was in Glamis a month ago. The sun was in my eyes and sand was blowing. It didn't relize there was a hill in front of me until I was in the air. I landed on the front tires and bumper. The car did a flip and twist. I ended up pointing in the direction I was coming from. Broke the radiator and a Heim joint. I was impressed how little damage there was

Cool Taz Warren I never seen a single seater I like the idea of a bit longer WB . Im not suprised ta hear about how little damage done W/a rollover The Taz's are a tough frickin car very well built . The only weak link ive realy found so far is the rear arms but ya weld a web or two into them and yer good ta go [smilie=mhihi.gif] And Welcome to MiniBuggy. I dont recall where yer from was it NC ? I did chat with ya right ?

Now we need another Lurkin member here to post a few picts of his Taz colection " He's got more than one " What a Taz hog LOL [smilie=rockout3.gi:

Rat,
When we talked on the phone I prolly introduced myself as Guy. Warren is my real name but I go by Guy. It took K-Fabs help and 2 hours to figure out how to post pics. I did push the rear upper shock tower in a little. I live 2 hours north of NYC. You hooked me up with K-Fab and he hooked me up with Jay Largo of Desert Dog. My car is currently with Jay getting widened into a 2 seater, install a new radiator, and I'm having Jay install my clutches i bought. Thanks for the contacts. Jay Largo use to work at ATV Racing but now works at Desert Dog Offroad. https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/wOzdDiMoqnmkkXGaeobB6fq3bpcboWKVim3fp0OKEBM=w255-h190-p-no

Talon, I want what your smokin!:D

The wheel base to body ratio is a trip.
I love the wheels base on these.
What is a TAZ anyways? A mfg. name?
What Travel numbers do they pull?

I would think the weak point would be the rear Tube going back on the Front A-arms. Wouldn't it be prone to buckle?

The engineering packs in a lot in a small package!

Rat, That car is Dope! Is the video with the Turbo?

Love the way the car looks on the buggy Jack! What kind of Jack is that?

K-Fab, put my name on the list for Rides on that thing come Presidents weekend!

Yup, the 1000 triple for the paraplegic guy. I remember that car well.
First Gen chassis.
Killer car!
Light, quick, handles wonderfully. Great ride!

Thatís the ride! It just needs some loving. Currently making it a two seat, changing the styling and chassis gussets where I feel theyíre needed. Canít wait to rip it!

Thought Iíd share an update. Iíve gusseted the front shock mounts, completely stripped and painted the car. Just got parts back from powder. Dropping shocks to get full service this weekend. New radiator, new seats and harnesses. Re mounted steering wheel, pedals, Howe pump and gear selector. Need to make two floor panels, mount new radiator and then throw this b back together! Iíll post some pics when I get back to AZ - out of town for work

Re assembly is under way. Ron Davis radiator was sagged out and will be mounting his new one. Couple of the exhaust pipes were rotted out, fixed those. New suspension seats on custom sliders. New harnesses also. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180822/8e9dcd8f96605edf0d31bd8f84ef99c8.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180822/55cb7894ad87f19efdb67756c915c59d.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180822/c856c1c8ae419f54101308be6f707b19.jpgStill waiting on the floor, pedal and some other brackets from powder (they will be chrome).

Two upper arms powder coat needs to be re done - they had these parts for over 6 weeks!!
