    I've always thought about building a small, fast little buggy to run on dirt roads. That looks exactly like the buggy I had in mind. Very cool!!

    The second video also reminded me that I need to spend more time out in the shop. Lots of stuff to do before my two-seater is finished!!!

    It even feels a lot faster than it looks. that is the good thing about small buggy's, and just fun to build.

    Now find someone to race us anyone from belgium on here? I supose not.
    Any other sollutions for understeering on low speeds biside using a differancial? Cornering only works pushing down the throttle and oversteer true the corner. But when we find a little bit of grip it tends to understeer badly. We have a small diff here but i'm affraid it will spoil the fun.

    Drop front tire pressure and/or raise rear pressure

    Can you add any caster?

    I think the problem sits at the rear. When we remove one axle it turn like a dime, so a diff can resolve our problem. One thing, does it drift at all with a diff? For the moment we can not add caster because we are out of treads at the rod heads, only less caster.

    We are making a diff setup and a fixed setup to see the difference. We are trying the Peerles differential i found in germany for only 50 euro's. Sow they are exchangeable
    @ Joostie. The engine we used is a daytona anima pitbike engine with a big carb. Its widly available in europe. Its a japanese disigned, chinese build small displacement but big hp engine. Finish one of your projects and come and race us.

    @willysp. Indeed the acherman could be the problem because in our setup the steering rods aren't alligned to the center point of the rear axle. But this is not an easy fix for the moment.
