    That looks mean and fast just sitting there... What size tubing is that for the frame? Looks big.

    I notice you went with vertical heims for the spindle. So did I but used hi-mis adabtors. With this setup my arms cycle 27" before the spindle makes contact with the heim. I could have massive travel up front... It will be limited to match the rear. I don't want a buggy with the Cal truck look....

    Nice build you have there, I like the overall look of it very much.

    The tubing is 1 1/2", These are our 2nd version of buggies, Our first ones are powered with a snowmobile motor with J arm front suspension & a swing arm rear. We are building these to race, & we lost with the first version due to handling problems & clutching issues. But our roll cage is pretty much the same. The cages have been tested several times the hard way & held up with no issues. Here is a picture of our 1st version.

    I would expect 1/5" tubing to hold up very well for a minibuggy. At least you know you will be safe.

    Bill,
    You are the winner of 1 case of Busch fully leaded. You should bring the winder and kids out sometime so I can pay up.
    I just hope to get the cars together this summer to make a few of Bob's races.........and Silver lake for some flight testing. It going to be tough though, I am swamped with work thru July. Good luck at Bob's if you are racing.

    Maybe a racing section should be added?

    That sounds good, although it will be awhile before I can add anything to it.
