    NOT MINE. I just saw it the other day and it looks to be a fair value....IMO

    There are also some nice cars from members here for sale.

    The smart ones will chime in soon enough and help you spend your money.....

    I like things that move. Pretty much limits me to cars and strippers.

    Get the Taz. Neil and ATV Racing will give you great support.

    The 1000 triple is a killer power plant. It's smooth and has loads of get up and go. It's also very reliable. They are noisy, though - I worked really hard to quiet down mine when I had it. - here's a link on how.

    Got any pix of the car you're considering? I'm pretty familiar w/a lot of the older two smoke Tazcars.

    I used to race a atv specialties pilot so I know Neil and trust his products im just a little worried about the clutch and belt with that hp and weight in the sand
    I also talked to Brian King who also builds a nice car but he warned me about this older cars engine and trans mounts.Its one of his oldest cars.I studied that mini buggy shootouts pros and cons and in my mind they seem different but equally fun.

    Belt is not a worry or a problem at all. As long as everything's aligned correctly it's darn near bullet proof.

    Switch out the Arctic Cat driven to a new Team, though. The Arctic Cat driven's a weak link in the system if you drive aggressively - it tends to knock the three towers that hold the thing together off. Not pretty. I used to keep two spares on hand at all times and treated them as a throw away part. Since going to Team, no driven issues at all.

    What color is it? Do you happen to have any pics? - describe the paint scheme... I get the feeling it may be a yellow one with sort of a checker board pattern on the side?

    You shouldn't have any issues or need to upgrade anything else. I had chassis #5 and it was the test bed for the majority of the first generation's upgrades. I bent and beat my old chassis into submission more than once... If you're interested, I've chronicled the life of my old Deztaz on my web site. Click on the "Yellow Dog Racing" link in my signature and then find the section called "Deztaz".

    Other than the clutch, you should have no issues. It's a durable, damn good car.

    As much as I like Neal at ATV Racing that car Yummi posted "seems" to be a good deal although I heard he hasn't had it very long which makes me curious about the sale. If you don't buy the King, post a link, Im always interested in a King car for $15k or less

    Id vote for the king myself, 4 stroke power, and them cat motors require tons of maintenance... I have suspicion besides the engine the Taz likely is a better car tho...
