    1st buggy build with bad land sabertooth inspiration

    Hi all. This is my first attempt at building a buggy. I am 17 and my younger brother and I have built mini bikes, go-karts and one off road go kart. We have some welding skills and have done a lot of research. We were given a donor quad for the project that has a 300cc engine which we will be using. It has reverse. So far, we plan on using double a-arm suspension, and swing arm rear suspension. We are using as many parts as we can from the 4 wheeler such as the hubs, wheels, engine, and hopefully brakes. I included a picture of what we have so far. Please feel free to leave both negative, positive and constructive feedback as this is a learning process.

    It says "upload of file failed." It is saved on my computer and it is small enough. And suggestions?

    I personally like using an atv for a suspension and parts. If a part breaks or wears out, a replacement is easy to find instead of having to build a new one. Just try to mount the motor as low as design will allow. A motor mounted to high will make it want to roll over in a high speed turn.

    Just go with a Photobucket account and it's EZ-Pee-Z.

    Cole,

    Do a search on here Jeep Buggy Thing I think this is right. The guy did just what you are looking at doing. I wish he would come back sometimes. Super nice buggy is not the word for this build.

    Not sure if Biker meant this one, but it's a neat little buggy for sure!

    This is where we are at so far. We have mounted the front a-arms and the wheels were just placed there to get a feel for what they will look like. The whole thing is surprisingly square.

    If you guys dont mind, i'm going to have a lot of questions through out this build.

    Thanks for looking!

    Wow that is really similar to what we are building. We were planing on using rear swing arm suspension because using IRS seems not only really hard, but much more expensive. It seems to me that using one solid axle with pillow block bearings would be much cheaper. Am I missing something? We can defiantly make rear a-arms but I'm scared of buying the hubs and bearing hangers and CV joints and all the other stuff that goes into IRS. Any input is greatly appreciated!

    Click on the chain link of the photo. (In the icons above the photo... On photobucket)
    Copy the direct link.

    When posting. You see the yellow icon that looks like a mountain
    Paste that direct link in it. It will look like this here.
