    It almost looks like the one your building now. That was a good idea using the spoiler as a gas tank. So how was your rear suspension on that one. Was it smaller then what you are building now and what was the travel on it. Do you still have one hanging around just to see where you started and to how you are building then now. You know 1st generation to what you have now.

    Yes, the roll cage design is very similar.
    It has been an evolution from these.

    The old 1st Gen models had the motor mounted on a swing arm with a straight axle.

    This was a little smaller but not much. It had maybe 8" of travel.

    Everything else is quite different with dual A arm suspension, different motors & drive train.

    We do not have any of the 1st models anymore.
    Someone in Pennsylvania has my old one.

    Our kids cars and now intermediate size MXT are back to the motor mounted on a rear 3 link swing arm with a straight axle

    I was looking at the pics on your website of the DXT1000, and I would like to know what kind of LED lights are in your spoiler? And are those road tires in the first few pics?


    Great looking buggies!!!!
