    yes i couldn't agree more, this forum is an excellent resource to have!

    It would be a pleasure to have you come around and take a look, even a test drive if i can get some land free from some of my farm friends . And it would absolute privilege to take your buggy for a rip .

    You ever been to whiskey hill yet? im sure you will like it for your jeep and even a little buggy fun on the back straight.

    Anyway i will keep an eye out for the hayabusa motor, when do you think it will be drivable?

    Project: MEGALODON YouTube video passed 1000 views!

    There's been a delay in getting our final laser cut parts for the rear drive system. We're expecting them Friday, June 17th now. Will post new pics after lasered parts arrives.

    Project: MEGALODON update. New photos added to our Facebook page.
    Badland Buggy - Automotive - Leduc, AB | Facebook

    This includes the balance of the laser cut plates & formed parts we need to complete the new modular front/rear drive & suspension systems. Fabricating all a-arms next...






    Hmm... I see my URL link to the photos didn't work. Anyone know how to add/link these new photos from Facebook to this thread?

    Beautiful job Bruce, is there any movement to the box to adjust for chain slack?

    Thanks, it's slowly coming together, never fast enough though, lol.

    Yes, there's a turnbuckle that mounts to one of the upper tabs on the Jeffco reverse gearbox & connects to the gearbox mount. When you turn the turnbuckle, it adds chain tension. The gearbox mount is designed so the Jeffco gearbox pivots slightly when taking up chain tension.

    On another note, we finally decided on chassis materials. We want to fabricate the strongest chassis possible, thus, for the bent tubular sections, we're using Chromoly DOM 1.50" od x 0.095" wall. Decided to go with Chromoly DOM for this chassis because it has a higher yield strength than mild steel (ERW, HSS) & it's dimensionally more accurate than mild steel tubulars. It's more expensive, but for the cost, it's worth it. Many racing rules also call for a minimum of 1.50" od x 0.095" wall tubing, so we want to meet these specifications as well. The chromoly DOM materials should arrive within a few days then the chassis fab begins, hopefully next week. Ordered another new tube bender this week too.

    Daaboots, thanks for posting those pics! Someday I'll figure out how to post pics properly to MBN, lol

    Most of the formed and laser cut material is 3/16" mild steel plate. Target weight is under 1000lbs with engine.
