    SAE style mini buggy for the desert
    #1
    Default
    so, i started a thread last year, with the intention of building a sae styled mini buggy for desert racing. i never finished that design, because i just wasn't happy with it. so i'm going to start over, and post pictures step-by-step with the design i come up with. hopefully you SAE guys on this site can lend me your knowledge and point me in the right direction.

    this is what i have so far for the design:

    i have a feeling 40" long for the drivers compartment is a little on the small side....should i lengthen it some?

    Thumbs up
    Put a rocket on it and it looks like a test sled that they use in the air force. What fun!!

    The seat would be on a rail 3ft 7 is close your helmet would out side the top and 3ft wide puts your elbows out of the cab Try 4ft high and 3ft 7 wide. Its always better to keep your self safe.

    It depends on your size. I am 6'4 and our driver compartment was 45in. The front suspension was mounted next to your feet. So it is doable but make sure you think about the pedal setup. Master cylinders can take up a lot of space.
