    Update:

    Started to mock up how the swing arm suspension could be used on the Trax 2. I'm pretty sure I can make it work.

    Basic mock up of how the buggy will look. The tires will be level when I'm done. The front tires will come forward about another 1".



    The buggy will be 52" wide when I'm done. Should be very stable.



    I'll need to turn the steering connection points on the spindles around to the front in order to make rack fit properly.



    Thanks for looking.

    Well its getting really cold outside lately. Minus 25c this morning. Not going to get much done on the buggy till March now.

    My propane heater setup... doesn't help if you don't have insulation in your garage


    Mounted the 4-wheeler swing-arm.


    ... then realized it has positive camber :x


    Getting there...

    What would happen if you swapped sides with the front wheel/suspension assemblies, it looks like then it would have neg camber...

    I'm not sure what to do. I don't think it will be much of an issue... the wife will never notice

    The Trax 2 was my Christmas present to my wife. I was hoping to have it complete, but I didn't have enough time to finish it. Here are some pics of it partially assembled and wrapped for Christmas.













    I also picked up a nice pink helmet for her as well as some goggles.

    Awesome work! that front end suspension looks like it was all part of the design.
