    It's not upside-down! Am I missing something? all we have so far is a basic base to the frame and the front A-arms.

    Also, as far as the way this site works, is it better for me to ask questions by creating new topic in the lounge? Or should I ask here?

    Ask here for the most part. If the question is about world peace ask in the lounge, if it's about your buggy, or anything that might be in or on your buggy ask here.
    Looking good so far.

    Alright everyone! The project is moving a bit slowly due to lack of funds but here is a quick update. We got the rack and tie rods mounted and it appears that we have 0 bump steer! We also made a good start on the role cage. Going back to my question about the engine, it sounds like we might be using a v6 off of a crashed 98 Ford Ranger with 70,000 miles on it. Will it be hard to get it to run out of the original vehicle? I included some pictures below.

    Thanks for looking. Input is greatly appreciated!

    UPDATE: So we decided not to use the ford engine. Our parents dont know anything about this hobby and I think they got really scared when they heard about it. For now we are using a modded 420cc lifan engine. We will be running a CVT to a hi-mid-low-reverse gear box. We have made lots of progress including seats, roll cage and steering. I will post pictures within a couple days once im home. Right now i'm stuck in vegas due to cancelled flights

    Thanks for looking!

    cole I have'nt seen your thread before. I built a sabertooth 2 lt. and the front a arms inner pivot points are exact opposite of what you have . mine by design, have the upper pp wider than the lower pp. yours are wider on the bott.than the top. my buggy drives straight and handles well and Im concerned that the way yours is it will not . check out others builds and note most all will be opposite of what you have.after all the hard work you dont want it to handle like a turd.
    if your not livin on the edge you're takin up too much room

    The reason that they are offset the way they are is because the atv hubs we are using have the same offset. because of this both the upper and lower a-arms are the same length. I will take pictures this weekend and post them. Thanks for your concern!
