Ok , well I got mad at the buggy guess I worked on it to much and got fed up so I traded it to my buddy for his buggy and went riding! He built a dash and lowered the rad (good idea)but just didn't love it like me haha so I traded back for it and have been working like crazy for 5 weeks straight!!!!!! here are some pics

Ok trying to tune this beast I'm having some issue's anybody know where you should start as far as pinion angle's,pre load of suspension, droop or up travel. Dan if you read this I would love to ask you some questions on your setup you had.

I think if it was a tad lower & the wheel base was a little longer, it would really look great. Seems like it's out of proportion at the moment.

The skins & roof look awesome though, really set that spark to it.

Wow! That paint job is

Very nice work. Can't help you with tuning suspension, but Im glad you bought it back and finished it the right way.

thanks, its actually wraps instead of paint, took me about three weeks to get over being pissed at it but then I had to have it back to finish lol. But tuning the suspension is testing my nerves but I'll figure it out eventually.

Tender springs come in tues, then final ride height and bumpstops can be set thanks. Hope I can get it about 3" lower but we shall see
