    Question
    hey guys i am 15 years old and i am very mechanically inclined, i would like to build a st2 long travel, where i will be riding is in the crowsnest pass alberta/bc, i just quit my minimum wage job being a burger bitch, now im working and making about 800 bucks every 2 weeks part time, great hourly wage! i have the sabretooth plans but now that i will have alot more money coming in i have decided to build the st2 long travel, or if you guys have any suggestions of other plans, here is what i want from a buggy, single seat, long travel, strong roll cage, great suspension, good balance, not to wide so it can drive on 4 wheeler trails, and to make my dads Polaris rzr its bitch! i currently have a set of tires and rims, 2x 25-10-12 and 2x 25-8-12, 4 bolt common atv pattern, shocks but i think i will buy the fox nitrogen or air shocks that the plans call for, as for my size im about 5-10 or 11, about 250lbs, let me know if you guys think the st2 will be good for me and if not please recommend a set of plans to me, i have a 12 ton pipe bender and alot of tools, i can get all the machining besides the plasma table time to get the brackets cut for free,

    Welcome to MBN


    sounds like you have a plan , and a good job to start making it happen.

    FYI: a Pipe bender will not bend tubing and will buckle it.

    Hi Swabbster!
    Welcome aboard. Proto is correct about the pipe bender. Even filling tubes with sand wont help. Been there done that. Save up and buy a proper bender.
    Heres the one I have: MB-105 Standard Duty Bender

    i will be using erw pipe, the bender will bend thicker tubing but not the thin shit, with that being said i will try to bend a sample and see if i can make it work,
