Zuk Based JHF/Goatbuilt Buggy
 
Got impatient waiting on a Jesse Haines chassis so I built my own chassis last summer using his portals and Trail Gear 9s. Saw Jesse and Drew were collaborating, so I sold it to a local wheeling buddy and decided to start over again.

Itís a DRW turbo kit with a new KO3 from an Audi or Volkswagen Passat and a 12:1 fmu. Went from a 45 amp alternator to a 94 amp GM. Couple pulleys, a new gasket kit and hours of scrubbing with degreaser.

Definitely in for updates on this one.
Any chance you'll be using a samurai hood on this chassis?
Im doing a JHF chassis build and want to cover it with a samurai hood

Im taking some parts from this

Ball joint eliminators, AKA king pins.

Rock Ape 05-31-2018 08:13 AM

Where is the build for the one ya sold....? :flipoff2:

So why Zuk power? Going to try to build it with weight savings in mind?

chris demartini 05-31-2018 09:09 AM

Followed your last build on hardline will follow this one.

Any more info on those ball joint eliminators?

Fabguy1 05-31-2018 09:58 AM

I'm pretty new to Suzuki/tracker stuff. I built the little tracker tube buggy that's on here. What's the tracker/300 doubler? Someone's kit or you just putting the 300 behind the whole tracker case?

adamwende 05-31-2018 10:00 AM

By passes on something Suzuki powered.... get the fuck outta here. :flipoff2::laughing::laughing:

Blase 05-31-2018 10:53 AM

Nice! Will be a cool build.

The last two have had a SC3800/AW4/300 and were both 3416 and 3406. Before the motor swap the first Zuk buggy was 2928. Other than stalling on big climbs it was fun and reliable. Figured Iíd try an auto for stalling and turbo for a little more woopow. Adam Wende and Graeme Tydeman both run this setup in their Zuk based werock and have great luck.

Adam and Gtydes both run one from the thread in the Zuk section. His name is Keith and itís a side job so be patient. Pics arenít mine, but he said heís gonna try and finish it this weekend and ship it.

Bought them as a package deal, and sold them before I got them out of the box. Iím already putting enough lipstick on a pig. :flipoff2:

Those ball joint eliminators are the coolest thing I've seen in a while!

CarolinaCrawler1 05-31-2018 05:26 PM

I've been dreaming of an axle build like this. Trail gear 9's, 05-up outers, JHF steering kit, the new stock 1550 shafts, a 10" ram and 50* steering......

Btw, been waiting on you to start this thread. Loved your others!

Thatís what this axle is. Waiting to get the chassis tacked and axles under it before cutting the housings down. If everything fits, as you can see in the above pic Iíll run stock 1550 shafts and keep these for spares. Only difference is Iím looking at the 2.75x8.75 ram F&R. I ran one on the original Zuk Buggy and it was plenty.

I hate when whiney cunts cry about Pirate is dead or full of big meanies. Add to the tech here, so the next generation has something to learn from and dream of someday building like we all did. This thread isnít going to be anything never done before, just done with a different twist. Hopefully someone learns from it, and at least one post lands me in the FAIL thread. :flipoff2:

desertCJ 05-31-2018 05:43 PM

Are you planning on sleeving the ID of the knuckles for a tighter fit on the tubes?

I'll be intrested in seeing if you can get link placement to clear 50* steering with stock shafts. I ASSumed I'd have to get 2 long sides and have the inners resplined. I know Jesse Haines sayes he doesn't like to offset an axle more than 8-9 inches because of this.

If anyone can figure it out you can. The quality of your last buggy was amazing.

The knuckles are 3.75Ē and the housing is 3.5Ē. I kept the long side tube from the axle and have it at a machinist friends haus to make 4 spacers for me.

Cool, its too early in the build to make the FAIL thread:laughing: Personally, I like to wait until it's at least 80% complete and Im fully committed in my failed direction before I figure out I'm good and screwed....lol

CarolinaCrawler1 05-31-2018 08:19 PM

Couldn't you leave the axle tube in the "c", and just have the inside diameter bored to 3.5"?

Beat95YJ 05-31-2018 09:30 PM

Any reason you didnít go portals again?
