AGR Steering TTB Buggy Build

We're building a NEW KOH car for the guys at AGR Steering!!! It's being built to race KOH 2012 as well as some of the other popular races.


The Specs are as follows:
We pulled to motor out of the old yellow AGR TJ ,which is a healthy Ford 302 TCI C4 transmission with a passenger side drop Atlas
Ruff Stuff full float rear housing with their new full float hubs
Ruff Stuff 9" center front housing
Factory Ford TTB-50 outter kuckles and C's
King Shocks
Rear trailing arms built and heat treated by Taylor of Heretic Fab
JAZ 32 gallon fuel cell
Afco Radiator and fan set up
Rodend supply heims and uniballs
Derale transmission coolers
and most important of all................
AGR Ram assist steering

We'll be looking for approimately 18" of front travel and 24" of rear travel. It'll be a typical 4 link rear with trailing arms. TTB front is really simple. The beams are built from 3/16 chromolly and built around the Ruff Stuff housing. We chose to use the factory stamped steel inner C's and the factory knuckles to take advantage of the 15 degree KPI that the factory TTB uses. Also, we did make the passenger side beam longer (diff side) because we felt we would be better off with one side longer than we if we had 2 short sides. We are using uniballs at the pivots and 1 1/4 heims on the radius arms.

This one was actually in the works to be at roller status by KOH this year but some things pushed it back. It has been in the works for a long time, so it's not another knock off
Be kick ass to see Matt get his ride on the dirt.

I never said it was a knock off I just like seeing ttb being used in these applications, to me it seems like a great middle ground between solid axle, and a-arm ifs. Mainly because it can be built cheaper than an a-arm setup, and you can pull a ttb setup out of a junkyard. Although this ttb system obviously did not come from a junkyard

Very cool Shaffer's! I like the rolled lines of the chassis. Looks fast already.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with the TTB customization.

You don't need the c-clip. I ran the D44 TTB in my old Bronco without the c-clip on the inner shaft for years due to having to remove it to install the lockright. I never had a problem with it.

Any plans for reinforcement on the factory knuckles/c's? I doubt they'll handle extended abuse times without reinforcement.

Sorry it been awhile, Ive had some small jobs that we had to hammer out!

We cut out the the rest of the link mounts and truss caps for the Ruffstuff rear end. The diff side TTB is finished and we are now building the mounts for it. The short side TTD should be finish welded today.

Here are a few pics
