    YouTube - Badland Buggy presents MEGALODON (WARNING! Explicit lyrics in music)

    We've been busy creating an all new buggy design, named "MEGALODON". Check out our new YouTube promo video.

    This is the new off road vehicle we have designed specifically for the release of our the new modular bolt-on front & rear suspension systems, as mentioned in some of our other threads on minibuggy.net. More photos, videos & info coming up on our Facebook (Badland Buggy | Facebook) & our Twitter feed (Badland Buggy (BadlandBuggy) on Twitter)

    We will be releasing full DIY construction plans for MEGALODON later this year. Plans will cost $74.99 & will be available for direct purchase on our website (Badland Buggy - Off Road Vehicles - Download Buggy Plans). We will also be offering some kits & possible rolling chassis's for MEGALODON. If interested, contact us at info@badlandbuggy.com

    Why put the wheel end of the rear bottom wishbone so close to the ground? will get caught up in ruts very easily.

    If only it were so simple, That will over gear it and is the transmission up to up to pulling bigger tyres, extra load on wheel bearings and messes up the suspension geometry.
    I would think ground clearance would be one of the first things to get right when designing a buggy for off road use.

    NOT a fan of the music choice,was watching it with 8 yr. daughter!

    She likes solid modeling so I thought I would show it to her.

    My bad,should have pre viewed it.

    Oh i dont know about all that...Tire...sorry, tyre issue can be dealt with by changing sprockets..and how do you figure extra wear on wheel bearings? Because larger tires/wheels weigh more?? Bearing wear is a hard thing to quantify if you ask me. I dont intend on owning my buggy long enough to require a wheel bearing replacement. Think about it:my daily driver is a 07 Hyundai Sonata..Im pushing 90000 miles(144K KM) and I will likely never change wheel bearing because they simply (probably) will not require changing. Keep in mind I drive this car to work everyday...

    Buggy wheel bearings (though on different terrain) wont see near the operational hours as my daily driver. Yes my buggy will be driven hard...very hard but not so hard as to make up the difference in time use. So I seriously doubt I'll ever wear out my wheel bearings.

    All this is my humble opinion of course....and I could be wrong.


    ...but I could be right.

    Many FNR transmissions like the Quaife do not have chain and sprockets, Also I know the Quaife falls apart with atv tyres on so will not last long with full size tyres on (not sure what fnr this is designed to use) wheel bearings take a hammering when you slide the buggy in to a turn and especially if you hit a rut or berm hard and the taller the tyres the more leaverage it has on the bearings, not rocket science. I have replacem the honda jazz ones in my buggy a few times and it is only 3 years old.

    It would be much better if the hub/wishbone had been designed for maximum clearance, thats what I did on my buggy.
