    Nice car you did a fantastic job.
    What are the measurements Lenght, height, width, wheel base and weight if you have them. How did you find Rorty's plans everyone here seems to think his plans are top notch.Just wondering you never know when you might get the itch to start another build and one should always know what is available out there.
    Good luck on racing and again fantastic job you should be proud
    Later Sodman

    Thanks Sodman
    I think Rortys plans are great and I plan on building a single seater using his plans. If you are planning on building a full blown desert racer there are some minor changes that need to be made, solely to counter the extreme abuse the car WILL go through. That being said I believe Rortys plans are the most detailed and well made plans available to the do-it-yourselfer. Again if it I did'nt have Rortys plans I would be stuck with a rotting out frame of a POS chinese buggy.

    Hey Tut, Thanks for the compliment.
    What do you mean when I WORKED at Mosebuilt? You don't work there anymore? I will try and write a race report but I hardly have time to get online anymore. That race was soo much fun and the car did really well. We had a couple of issues but nothing major, I'll fill you guys in later. Remember Tut my offer of having you and the lady come down for a working vacation still stands. Tell her not to worry about the language thing, there are more americans down here than you might think. I think she would really like it. Plus we can rip around the desert.

    You know I would love that and used to go at least once in awhile back in the day.
    But no Mosebillt split and the owner went bankrupt.. sad.
    We all lost our jobs. It's been about 1 year actually. The other partner John opened up
    Mosebilt spelt a hair different and still does buggies just does not really have any full time employees etc. and really no work for me to go do.
    Besides he don't want to do mini buggies so this has actually made me get off my but and start building my own minis and I am moving a long. Money is tight so it is going slowly but I am getting it done.

    I will talk to my wife and see.. wow the Baja 1000 is going on you guys going to it?
    To watch or heck maybe even race in it? That would be fun maybe plan on it next year for us
    to all get together and anyone else on the site and get a group to go watch the baja next year?

    About my post not a compliment a fact your guys cars turned out great realy well done, very professional and makes all of us who enjoy the minis proud.
    Nicely done and post when you can I understand. Heck you don't have to do a full race report just some pics are worth a ton of words like that pic.. wow!
    Good luck and keep up the great results at the races!
