Hi Gay

I wanted to know I have at the moment Buggy SIDEWINDER with the engine GS500 I would like to build their buggy RICK Does the above match engine ?

Or I need a more powerful engine ?

In addition, I would like to build it a bit differently , I want to build the rear suspension arm style semi trailing what you think.?

Thank Elad

Yes you really need a more powerful engine to make the most of the design. Nothings stopping you putting the small motor in, but make sure your engine mounts are bolt in, so you can change it out later.

Is this your first build? Are you experienced with design and welding? Why do you want to change the standard design?

Hii

Is not my first build i build the sidesinder two years ago.

I want to change because the semi trailing is more useful for the road in my country

Not sure why semi trailing arm would offer any huge benefit over the double a.
Travel would be the same since both are limited by the same axle lengths and cv's.
What is the road or terrain in your country?

I prefer the roads too. Check these videos out.

The car screams and handles great on the roads. Tight, rocky, whooped out or sand.
It can do all at very high speed. I'm sure the semi trailing arms would be fine too. But your last car was a sidewinder. It's suspension is nothing like the AR51. Build it to the plans and you won't be disappointed.
