    This one has an 03 R1 a little overkill for a lite buggy, goes way faster than I'm willing to go, old age does that for you.

    I also used a protodie rear spool and 930 CV's on this one to try some new stuff out. the other 4 I built have R6's and they are very fast and very fun to drive, I used ujoints on them and they are working out ok other than twisted a few 1/2 shafts but they are easy to replace.

    Looking forward to your build,
    Have fun,
    Ted

    Ted Did you use a FNR gearbox in any of your buggy ? If so what kind did you use ?

    yea i didnt like the smaller a arms either i built mine out of same size tube as the chasis on my st3 but mine also 4x4 and powered by cbr1000r and yea before you weld it all together make sure it fits you i changed mine from a 600 to 1000 motor and had to redesign the whole rear and front of the chasis to keep the motor low as others said i dont want high CG so i hung all my diff and drive train under buggy to keep motor low i gained 8+ inches by doing that

    Hi John,
    No not yet, I really haven't missed having reverse, well actually that's not accurate, one time I did, when the wife decided to park in front of a tree going down hill on a trail, that was not to much fun,...

    I'm looking to build another one with an 06 R1 that I picked up, might try putting one on it, I was looking at the RPM box, but likely will end up in divorce court pretty soon, mini buggies are like crack and once your hooked look out, wives don't seem to understand the need for just one more.

    Have fun,
    Ted

    Ted, That's a good one "wives don't understand the need for just one more" You can tell them "wives that is" that buggies are a lot like shoes . It doesn't work but it is still the same principle . The wife found no humour in that one oh well
    Sorry about the hijack

    I can only say this one way
    Can I have some close ups of your backend
    I wanna see how you managed to get your engine so low and so far back
    I'm using an limited slip diff and its leaving my engine high and fwd am hoping to lower the wishbone mounting plates that carry the diff below the bottom line of he chassis maybe a little more at the front than the rear but not sure how suspension will work if its tilted down slightly
    Any pics would be greatly appreciated
