Krush Buggy

Been working on a design for a long time, building a pair of them side by side.

Both identical chassis, so figured I'd make one build thread.



The one on the left is going to be mine,

22re, w56, Duals,
Toy front double triangulated 4 link, longs, air shocks, etc. Full hydro
IFS toy rear, double triangulated 4 link, air shocks,
38s, weld on beadlocks,

The one on the right is going to a good friend of mine

Turbocharged 305 on propane, sm465, Black box, np205
Dodge 60 front, double triangulated 4 link, grizzly locker, RCVs ORIs, double ended full hydro, 4.56s
14ff rear, ddetroit, 4.56s double triangulated 4 link, ORIs
39.5 Rockers with weld on beadlocks

Chassis looks like this bare........



Modeled everything in 3d first and we're kind of working backwards at the moment.

Started with the sub frames. Identical front and rear, and between the buggies.









Trussed the front toy for mine



Cycled it some



Ride height-ish



Welded it out and added some tie-down points for on the trailer.

60 gets a similar treatment.



Lower link is a bit of a bitch, but got something figured.









Room for 50* of steering, we'll limit it to 45*





And got it all welded out too, and the same tie-downs

On the yota buggy are you planing on the engine to be over top of the front 4 link or drop down behind the front axle? I only ask because on my current build my crank pulley is 2" back from the centerline of the axle housing and with duals, the shifters are way back. Your drawing looks to be a shorter design chassis than mine whats the specs for wheelbase you are shooting for?

Motor behind the diff is the plan. I know that its going to put the shifters back, but when I weighed out the options that was the lowest of my concerns. These will both be 106" WB, but the way I designed it I could slide the rear crossmember back and get an extra 10", might do it on the v8 one.
The biggest thing is that I wanted to keep it slammed, and a good weight balance, I should be close to 50/50

Gotta stay busy right

I'm rather looking forward to testing the motor for sure. He's having a local guy build the motor thats done a few allready, they've got some balls.

Thanks. Its the first time I've ever built everything in 3d before I started, never had so much planning go into a project. Seems to be paying off though.
Steering work starts tomorrow.

I love that you are putting the steering behind the axle. Its the only way to go! How much clearance on uptravel will your ram have from your upper links.

More travel room than his shocks will have. It was always the plan to do it this way, so we modeled it out from the get go. Wish we could do the same with the toyota, but I want to be able to put a high pinion third in there later, so it just wouldnt work

can you show a non skinned rendering that shows the subframe and the chassis connected together? Cool design on the subframe stuff.

Thx.

Looks a bit planned out


It must feel nice to make your drawings come to life and start moving around like they did on the computer
