    I am using 3/4" rod ends for the arm-end points and 5/8 for the steering arms.
    2" for the 3/4 and 1.5" for the 5/8.

    Those plans look sweet, I just don't think you're going to get real far on the dunes with those bald tires...

    So there were or I guess are still of couple of details I have to Iron out on this buggy. That being said I have a question for all of you. Does this spool assembly look as though it is boxed in enough that there should not be any twisting (torquing) issues.
    Let me know what you think. ( Protodie i'd love to hear your thoughts considering your prolly the most experienced here with these )

    Just a note for scale. Frame tubes are 1.50, spool plate is all 7 ga (3/16) and that turn buckle is 3/4 unf threads and 1.25 sq stock

    Whenever I think of a box that needs to resist twisting,I think of diagnal bracing between mounting/stress points.

    just found this.....been crazy busy and not on here as much right now.
    When I get a chance to check out MBN,,,,there are usually 160 or more unread posts.

    Looks good,,,,, but IMO: I would add some tabs and slots on the bottom side to help support the center carrier .

    The turnbuckles will help take most of the twist load,,,but slots / bolts at the bottom would really help lock it in


    hope this helps
