    run a search, been pretty well debated. Also, run a youtube search for top gear buggy. They did a side by side with the drakart and rage. Their basiclly sold over in europe. I've never seen one in the states.

    I believe the Drakart they tested was the old style with the single A-arm rear.

    Never seen any Rage buggies here in the states either. Closest thing is the Redline Revolt I think. Buggy World seems to be selling them like hot cakes. The also offer test drives, at the least the one here in Lakeside does. Haven't been over their yet to test one out, maybe something to do this week while I'm on vacation. Spotted four on their lot today when I drove by.

    As I understand it, and please anyone correct me if I am wrong!
    Here in the uk there is an organisation called NORA who organise supermoto and I think motocross type events for bikes, Quads and superlites (buggys) one of the organisers Is the same guy who imports the drakart buggys.
    A few years ago the rage buggys came along and in time started beat all of the drakarts, pilots and the other home built buggys, the next I heard was the rage was no longer allowed to race (As I understand it the rules were changed so that you could not have any kind of diff, the rage uses a quaife lsd, the drakart has no diff)
    Last week I read the only buggys allowed to race are officially imported drakarts (some people have imported there own)
    Like I said please correct me if I am wrong in any way.
