Trying to recall and I do not think these machines had a lot of issues but I may be wrong

The only thing I heard that was tender was the trans - and from what I hear an RPM is darned near bolt in.

If the ad is correct, this one already has the RPM.

OK no joke here has ANYONE ever drove a Cmoore buggy before?

Looking for input as to how they are for handling etc.

I am talking to the owner and thinking about driving down to get this machine.

Hows it going nutz?

Looks like the front spindle geometry is a little funky?

Good luck.

I thought the KPI was a little off looking but sometimes it works when it looks like it should not. Thats one reason I had asked above for somone who had some seat time in these.

That said I have talked to the owner and am seriousl looking at it but I am afraid I may have to pass as I am not sure I will fit.

I am 6 foot almost two inches tall with a size 16plus foot. The hole to the pedals is only about a foot itself and my feet are that long.

I already got a good few pics from him and the brake assembly WOULD need to be altered for me as its way to close to the seat and there is only about an inch from the master cylinder to the steering rack.

That said it would be fairly easy to make or buy a 90 degree master cylinder to be able to move the brake pedal forward.

At 15 hours away (driving) I thought about snagging a airplane ticket if I could find a cheap one to go see it in person and buy it if I thought it could be made to work. Then maybe even arranging shipping VS driving to get it.

That said a company I do "supervision consulting" for just asked me to leave Michigan for a job in Kentucky with a possible two month time frame and they want me there Monday. But I have to make it Tuesday or Wednesday due to a previous appointment. The job is 6 to 7 days a week and 12 plus hours a day but the scratch is GOOD.

So it might interfere with going to look at it....

To be honest I am surprised a closer to him shorter person has not snagged that machine. Its a hell of a deal.

Nutz - head over to rzrforums.net and find a guy that goes by Dunepilot. His name is Eric. He has seat time in them. I think he may have been involved with them in some aspect.
