    I'll give credit where credit is due if you can design and build a buggy or "anthing else for that matter" and get positive feed back on your design, craftmanship, attention to detail or what ever sets you apart all the power to ya . Jody you do have a rock solid design on your hands and with the way the economy is getting some feed back from people that are pro's congrates on a job well done .
    Not tring to butter anyone up here but could I have my name on one of those 30 buggies ?
    Any Small Back yard buisness that moves forward that what drives the enconomy Congates "pat your self on the back"
    Good luck

    Thanks Sodman
    I appreciate the kind words.

    30 buggies,,,that's a lot..........of fun.

    Someday,,if life and finances permit we hope to land a large sponser who would want their name on a racing series.

    Then build 10 race buggies
    Next find 10 drivers to each buy into one of those buggies at 1/2 price
    while the sponser picks up the other half.

    Drivers could find other sponsers to help fund their sport too

    Drivers are under contract to make 75% of scheduled races for 2 years because of the sponser discount.

    The more your car gets seen at the track,,,the better the sponsership chances & funding.

    IMO: hopefully someday, this would.....

    Make our buggies more affordable
    build up this type of racing & sports
    guarantee more drivers show up to each race

    and most importantly,,,,get me back on the track racing

    May be a far reach but I have seen crazier things happen

    I hope to make a couple down South.

    There has always been racing available and tracks to race at.

    For several years we were pretty much the only ones showing up

    3 buggies and 6 kids cars.

    Bob's closed down last year,,,so kids now race on our .2 mile dirt track every Saturday,,,,,, 7 cars now.

    I hope there is more showing up to the races,,,but I would like to see more consistantly showing up before we make the trip to out of state tracks

    You have to be beaming, and you should be. Think of how many of us build, would love to sell, and just keep tinkering. You've not only already made it to the next level ( you did that a while back ) but now your starting to live the dream. I hope this goes the way we all hope it does. You surely deserve it. Just wish you the best of luck in keeping up if things go where it looks like they might.

    I've been following your stuff for a long time, attention to detail and your approach to taking care of your customers is what got you here. Couldn't have happened to a better guy. Congrats and we'll see you at the races.

    THE PROTOLITE 1000 !!!!!! YEAH BABY !!!! sorry, got carried away, but great job on all counts. just beyond words

    Thanks for all the kind words & support guys,,,,I really appreciate it.



    Those are ITP dunestars 26" dia on 12" ITP bead locks

    They work good,,,but I do wish the rear paddles were a little wider.

    That motor can handle a lot more paddle
