We are adding a section to our website called "Garage sale"

Gonna put misc used buggy stuff there for cheap.

also,,,sometimes machining a part will get a blemish or flaw that is just visual but does not affect function.

these will also be there

Garage Sale (http://www.protodie.com/Garage-Sale_ep_54.html)

Right now I have the 1st Prototype XK450 frame on there. $750

during hard core testing,,,,,,,,well heres the full story.

Car was handling awesome and I was putting down great lap times
Track was getting really rough and needed a grade.
But was end of the day and I said,,, couple more runs because I wanted to beat my previous lap times.

went out,,,, grabbed an extra gear on the straightaway and was flat out hauling ass....

came into the corner hot,,, hit a rut and put the front wheels in the air,,,,so not turning.

hit the berm and launched up in the air.....smack dab right into the trunk of a tree,,,six foot up in the air

Stopped the buggy in the air and dropped right there on all four tires.

holy crap,,,,,was a hard hit,,, but was totally fine,

the hit took out the left front A arms and bent the front bumper tube.
if I throw a laser on the chassis it is tweeked an 1/8 to 1/4"
tweek,,,Nothing you would notice without the laser and when finished.
front bumper tube should be cut out and replaced.

its been sitting on the shelf, so thought I would pffer it up at a cheap price for someone to get back on all fours.

All parts are available,,, A arms, trailing arms, axles set up etc etc.
I have not gotten around to listing these parts on our website yet
but they are available to finish the build

you can check out the complete buggy here
