    ST 2 Long Travel Buggy
    #1
    Default
    Hello , been lurking around here looking and reserching as much as possible . So jumped in to the buggy building .And I bought the plans to start my ST2 , but I guess it's my fault . I didn't realize that it was made from 1 inch tubing . I was wondering does everybody always stay with 1 inch or go up to say 1 1/4 or 1 1/2 . My plans was to run a 600 cc bike motor or if I could find one maybe a 750 . Any thoughts ?

    The 1" tubing is 38mm in diameter... not 25,4.

    For the ST2, 1" is working fine! It's quite a compact buggy and bigger size tubing is harder to work with in this design.

    Bigger is always better.. I have a 750cc in my 2 seater modified st3 and am pleased with it.

    For an st2 750cc should be good.. but bigger is better, and you will always want more power

    My plan is to trail ride and to play in the sand with it . But with the extra size does anybody have any idea how much more the buggy going to weigh -in at with the larger tube ? Because weight is power.

    forget how much it weighs...build it strong. Thick wall tube. I went the cheap route and paid the price.

    Thought I remembered the Badland plans called it "pipe" which would have an ID of 1" and OD in the 1.25-1.35" A build out of 1.25 "tube" would be stronger and lighter. .095 wall. 1" tube for some bracing would be fine.

    What do you mean ? Please explain .

    As far as the plans calling for the use of pipe I'm going with DOM tubing . Not sure if I going with .083 or .095 wall thickness .

    Yea , My thoughts exactly , 1 1/4 Dom tubing an .095 walls thickness . And leave the bottom 1 1/2 Square tubing . and see how that holds up . Does anybody run 1 1/4 tubing on there A arms or leave it 1 inch heavy tubing ?
