    Well, this put a hold on brakes. Rear uprights are too wide to allow the caliper to sit properly over the rotors. I am going to re design the uprights properly to work with a brake set up ( I originally thought about putting the brake on the jackshaft).





    Here are a few photos of my old (never was finished) sidewinder build beside my new buggy.





    Few odds and ends worked on.

    I have been putting a fair bit of time into the rear end (drive system and jackshaft) of my buggy. I got the secondary chain tensioner installed and the adjuster bolts to adjust the primary chain tension.

    The chain tension is a 1/2 ready rod shaft supported by 1 turnbuckle linkage currently. I had a fair bit of feedback on Facebook saying that upon downshifting the slack (now tension side) of the chain will see very high tensile loads. For this reason, I am going to add a second turn buckle linkage to help avoid any wrecks. Hopefully it holds after that!

    Here are a few photos

    The Sidewinder!! I remember those plans. You mounted the engine right next to you so you could periodically pat it on the head for a job well done!!

    It doesn't look like it would take much to finish the Sidewinder. What made you abandon the project?
