    I'm 6-2, trophy carts are tight but doable. I have not sat in or driven an EBK.

    I have an EBK mini buggy, bigger than the trophy carts, I'm 5'11" and it is a tight fit and especially a bit of a pain climbing in and out of the cage, if I do some mods one will be to put in some sort of a door

    I might have a door, it would make things easier, but idk yet, I like the look of the regular ebk, as for room, ill probably make it a couple inches wider, longer and taller (6''-8''?), what size tires / rims are on your ebk Kuma? are 20x10-10 rear and 21x8-10 close?

    my EBK is not a trophy cart, it is about the size of a rhino, it had VW pattern 15" wheels on it and now has spacers which reduce it to 14" side by side wheels for the sand tires, I'd have to check but if I were to guess they are 26 - 28inch

    Great thread!
    I have built a Rorty R-16. That was a GREAT car! After building one, I would definitely look at using an automotive sourced engine. I personally would run a Subi boxer engine with the stock 5 speed and a subarugears.com reverse ring and pinion kit. For a car like the Rorty, that would work perfect! In my Rorty i had a CBR 1000 engine with an RPM. Great set up for play but was a little doggy in the sand. Partially due to the fact that I was running 30" mud terrain tires which SUCKS the power with all the rotational mass.
    I sold that car in favor of an AR51. I had it set up with a GSXR 750 and it was an AWESOME car! I drove the piss out of that car too. If that car had just a little more suspension travel with some bypasses it would be a BEAST!
    Fast forward to now, I cut the AR in half after I bought a Hayabusa for it...then I made it 12" longer....re did the cage....made the suspension wider by 6" overall...added bypass shock in the rear and I tell you what, it is AMAZING!!! The busa pulls very hard and you don't have to wind it out like the 750. For reference, I am 6'3 and fit into the car perfect, in both forms. Below are some comparison photos of an AR (the orange car) and my slightly modified AR next to it.
