Buggy is looking sweet. I love the swoopy look you get with rolled tubes.
i broke 6 chromo birfs to one gear set

i think its great people are starting to recommend bigger birfs instead of a 9.5 diff with mini birfs like you used to see everyone suggest

Well it sure beats the tip of their head being above the cage . Compare the transition to a 1st Gen runner. It's about the same. Not to many options as I've explored them myself

Well seat hight hasn't been set 100% yet for the front but I don't see there being any visibility issues up front.. As for the rear seat visibility is not gonna be great but that's secondary to safety.. My girl will be able to pretty much sit in the middle of the bench, as most times it'll be just her in the back.. The back seat will be tight but it's built more or less for the kiddo..

Back to work on the buggy..

Got a wheel and tire mounted up and mocked up. Installed 2" spacers in the rear.. Tacked in some rear support tubes getting ready to mount shocks.. and locate air bump cans, sway bar links, limit strap packaging.. Kinda tight in there but the 2" spacers help a bunch..

Sweet build. Really like how clean it looks.

A buddy of mine built a rig with rolled tube last year. Makes it look smooth.



Im doing a full body build right now with a 3.4 swap and I elected to stick with the auto instead of the manual as well with the duals and 4.7's. Hoping I made the right choice also.

I should have mine moving on its own in a week or 2. Will let you know how slow it is...and I hear it will power through the brakes in low low.

sorry... maybe wrong wording. What's the height (the bottom of the subframe to the floor of the buggy) so how much does the subframe hang below the floor. Im also curious about frame side vertical between your uppers and lowers. If you dont mind me asking sorry. Im currently building a Ranger truggy in my 2 car garage

Why the rearward mounting coilovers? It looks like you would have room to flop them forwards the same degrees and gain a little more travel at the same time?

Agreed we've discussed this and it's still not set in stone.. Sill trying to figure out packaging with the bump stops, and sway bar.. plus mounting the shocks in the opposite direction will make make skinning in the sides of the rear seat a little more challenging.. (wanna keep the kiddos hands way away from the shocks)

Nice work. Love the lines. No overly complicated looking, which is a good thing.

The potential to have body parts pinched by a vehicle rocking and the coils compressing on that side was my negative comment on moving them forward based on the rear seat location. However, if you had enough room to put skins inbetween the coilover and seats that should eliminate that problem.

Judging by those wheel spacers, you could probably move the axle side coilover mounts out a little bit without the tire hitting the coils on the compression side. Depending on your flex/wheel travel you may also be able to get a little more inward lean of the coilovers or move the upper mounts out the same as you move the lower mounts out. I just set up my rear 4 link and was suprised how much I could push out the axle side mounts without any real negative impacts other than putting the coilover at about a 17* inward angle at ride height.
