Hi new to the forum. I'm in the uk I brought a unfinished badland st2 chassis unfinished and come across this forum while searching and got reading glocks build. It's looking a bit sorry for itself I got the drawing pack with the project but I don't have the dfx file for the laser cut profiles so I emailed badland. I have made my wishbones and rear carriage. I and using a diff and driveshafts and a Kawasaki 750 driveshaft engine. I have lots more reading to do on forum. Thought I'd join in with a build thread

Howdy Stuart! Welcome to MBN.

Good to hear that you've decided to join the buggy world - you have a great project vehicle to work with.

Post up pix - we all love them. Here's how do to it (http://www.minibuggy.net/forum/minibuggy-net-news/20099-posting-photos-minibuggy-net.html).

She needs blasting and welds tidying up but it's a start. I'm still hoping to get a reply from badland regarding a dfx file so my boss can order the plates for me. I am a welder fabricator at a engineering company

Hey Stuart!

I like to see another ST2 build! I'm building a ST2 Long Travel and I have a set of DFX files for you, I found them on this forum and the guy told me at that time that Bruce has emailed them to him.

You can find it in the attachments below, please check the measurements!! I don't know if they are correct with your model.

Good luck! Keep us updated.

Erwin

Rear plates are tacked together and diff is mounted between. Need to finish turnings bushes down for arms then will make the hubs then can mount them to the chassis. Will get pics soon

As for suspension would a small car coilovers be any good?

Look into late model roundy round coil overs. 9" travel, rebuildable, cheap, you can find them all over the US.

I'm in the uk so if I order from states I get stung with import charges so trying to stick to uk sources

Find a "friend" that's willing to ship stuff to you instead of importing it as new parts. I'm sure that there's someone here on the board that can help.

Cheers k fab. I need to make friends first haha. I'll be posting more pics tonight as doing some more work on it today. I pick up my bucket seat tonight and hopefully win the steering wheel I'm bidding on. [smilie=wbounce.gif]

Workbench looks a little wimpy! Better add some bracing.

It's got plenty of bracing underneath. It's now a rolling chassis :)
