    looking good. What kind of reinforcements are you putting on the front hubs? or did you do that already?

    also... what made you choose a Volvo engine?

    I have put 40x5mm steel strips
    Later still reinforced from the bottom.

    Why Volvo engine? I like Volvo, I drive a Volvo. Seriously speaking this engine has a lot of potential. Without too much trouble can raise output to 300hp. The engine light and strong.I was thinking about Suzuki GSXR 1000cc engine, but expensive and I did not like the sound, torque weak. In fact I do not like a motorcycle engine into buggy

    You are going to brace the spindles, aren't you? The present flat plate for the top mount won't stay like that very long. It needs the sides boxed in.

    Okay, good. I was worried that you were going to leave it like in the pictures.

    I'm surprised with how much abuse the upper snout of the spindle takes - make sure you brace it in really well.
