I am in the Rocky Mtn House area of Alberta and currently in the progress of building a ST 3 and there are at least 2 more in Central Alberta with buggys that I know of, Maybe they will chime in here to.

Thats cool im in that area as wel, i made a coment on another sticky about using a thinner walled round steel, or u will end up with a buggy that weights 2500 pounds, be carefull u dont want that. im looking at rebuilding my roll cage because of weight issues. what kinda support are u getting from bruce at blb?

So far Bruce has been very fast with replys, I know they downsized a lot. They also dropped there parts sales now and are only selling plans.
Not sure what happened there.
But he assures me most if not all of the needed parts are available here in Alberta so I will have to take his word on that and see how things go as I do my build.
If all else fails I can order online out of the states anyways.
Anyways the plans call for 1 inch tubing or 1.315" x 0.100" wall tubing . is that to thick ? any suggestions what you could use for wall thickness to keep the weight down without losing strengh ??

Build the main chassis out of 1.25 x .083 mild (1018 *or 1020 DOM) and you'll do just fine.

Up the thickness to .095 for the main roll cage hoop and the a-pillars.

Do all the cross bracing and triangulation bracing with 1 x .063"

In all reality, you can probably get away with building the car out of .063 and doing the cage in .083, but we all tend to overbuild for the sake of safety.

Actually a spring ride out in the Hinton Dunes sounds like fun even better if its more buggy fans. I will be looking forward to that provided i have a finished ride by then

Still waiting on my Bender, seems there a little tough to get a hold of here.
But it is ordered. I got sidetracked playing in the snow so nothing has been done with the buggy yet. so probably no spring buggy ride for me.

Gave the Indy 500 a beating most of the winter, or I mean it gave me a beating.

well as soon as things come together I will be ready to drive out to the dunes,my buggy isint quite ready I still have to build the exhaust and do the wiring harness and little bits and pieces,but if it isint ready I will just ride my quad I would be interested in checking out buggies.I drive an old modded indy 650,the best mod on it is the 12" tall mountain bars I built ,made it into a whole different machine (stand up only).
