Looks good for a moon-buggy, but dayum that thing looks like a belly dragger! I wonder if all these moonbuggies can actually do a trail like sledge or jack without dragging everywhere? No doubt though they got it goin on for the big slickrock climbs.

I used to think the same thing until I watched them work. They drag belly a lot, but the HP to weight ratio is so high, if they get one tire to touch, they slide off what they are hung on.

Never doubt, these may look like they are for comps only......but they kick ass on everything but driver comfort

This one is damn nice! Great work Mike!

That looks fantastic! Is it just an illusion, or is the seat further forward than "normal"?
