    Nice Job Jody, what prompted the design? Were you contracted by a company to design this buggy for them?

    Thanks Guys,

    Kfab your pet peeve is alot,,,, mine is Jodi with an i
    thats a girls name LOL
    just messin, story of the life of a guy with a girls name LOL


    Ninja, I have had several lower horse power designs in the works for the past couple of months.
    One being a quad engine dual arm version of the MXT,,,, thats about 70% complete on the computer
    but switched up to this because I was contracted by a rental company for a 2 seat design using this motor and cvt clutch and reverse gear box.
    Their specs are a two seat buggy with top speed of 45 mph on this model,,,, and a budget model ,,, good ride but no need for long travel with durability
    I cant tell you how many hours I have into design and research around durable budget friendly parts for this model.
    but will be worth it in the long run,,, super happy with the simplicity I designed into the build for manufacturing,,, yet strong and durable.
    I would not be scared to put a GSXR 600 (103hp) in this model and it would,,,, will rock
    I may build one for the family,,, my son is now 15 1/2 and ready to shift gears and take chics for rides around the track :-)

    this 2 seat model is using budget coil over shock , but they can be upgraded along with engine and many other things,,, so you can get in at a entry level and add upgrades as your need and budget changes

    really looking forward to testing this V twin model, gear box is 13:1 so should hit the specs of my customers low end power with a top speed of 45

    I can totally understand. I've always questioned the spelling. It seems I'd seen it spelled with an i in a post long ago and I took that as the way.

    My apologies, Jody!

    I have a cousin named Dana and he's had hell with it all his life. Knew a Karol too...

    Hey, glad to hear you got a contract to drive the new design! That is great news. I can't tell you how many times I see a Polaris rental place give someone a 15 minute video of how to drive on the dunes and cut them loose with a 900 or 1000. They would be better suited with something a little more beginner friendly like the design you have. I have also seen really low powered rentals that go nowhere. Looks like you have something in between.

    Nice work Jodi... ur, I mean Jody LOL.. When someone thinks it's Jodi, just tell them to replace the "o" with an "e", and to bow down to the Buggy Fab Master!!

    Hopefully this design makes you some bank, keep living the dream man!!!
    Just another Dreamer....
