    The V2 is an awesome engine, Very happy with it!

    I haven't got the reverse installed at the moment. I had problems with the rear end and stripped it. Never installed reverse afterwards - its a job for a rainy day.

    Haha, love the helmet, looks like a familiar sight!


    Also, just checked your build thread, great work! Looks like we have matching buggies, just on different sides of the world! Cool!!

    Hey, just had a quick look through this thread and it is all looking good, loved the race report you did with an awesome outcome! i also have a Barracuda, but still in the trial phase. having major problems with the chain, if you could have a look at my thread and possibly voice any ideas that may help me that would be great!

    Basically i am running a heavy duty drag chain but still managing to bend pins, we manged to get it running without stretching on a 17 tooth and 60 tooth sprockets. but i found this very boggy through the gearing, tried a 15 tooth on the front as i couldnt get the 16 on and was back to bending the pins again.

    any help appreciated thanks Matt

    SO i finally caught up with a few of the other local boys now I've moved interstate. Work has been killing me this year and every weekend off I've had I have had someone getting married and weddings.

    Anyway, we had a test day at the local offroad racing track. This track is awesome, more of a tight technical track than a high speed run, and it had been raining all night so it kept the dust well controlled. Didn't get out of second for most of it
    I had some video, but it was corrupted and didn't save. Joys of a $40 fake gopro.

    Simon (also on the forum) managed to get some great shots (hope you don't mind that I ripped them from facebook)






    So then my fun ended. I was pushing wide into a corner trying to come out shallow. I was concentrating on the narrow line, looked ahead and it was too late. Boom. Tree. The tree won. No magic tales, I screwed up good. My fault. stupid.
    Damage report so far is:
    Tie rod steering box arm
    Upper suspension mount
    Upper and lower suspension arms
    Air shock.

    It should get better with a bit of development.
