I know eveyone has an opinion on the hottest setup. Lets hear
it. Would like to run a 2.0 or 1.6,auto yes auto,need to disconnect axles. Possibly 44's since I have 4-6 laying around
I think I can have 33 spline axles made or maybe 300m 30 spline.
I would rather not run dbl t-cases to save weight but.....

And DSI where did you end up at St.george?

Sounds like a shaffer copy to me. :eek: This year the trend is the light stuff.

I think a 1.6 auto would be a total pig. I think you would want more power when using an auto. So the 1.8 or 2.0 would be a better choice.

I've always been interested in that Isuzu alloy V6 (3.0 and 3.5). I think they have a pretty low weight, but pump out a little over 200 hp with good torque.

(DSI can't log teh g/f out :( )


well with the spotter kicking 3 cones, and his lack of spotting skills and ending up over @ the hospital friday after i got off my last course i ended 17th, not to proud of it to say the least :(


the 1.6 complete weigh's 230ish lbs, i've got a toy 5sp with a toy crawler box w4:1's and a home-made D300 adapter so i have my cutting brakes, and the D44's have cro-mo's up front and stock junkyard crap in teh rear i weigh 2480 with 3/4 tank of fuel (7 gallons)

Skynard here on the board is competing in there new zuk buggy...

Vitara V-6 motor, auto, 5:1 tcase with d44's and 37's.......Motor has plenty of juice to it, but i think there over the 3000#mark....

I think that auto will be a pig behind the 1.6..........it might be different with the 2.0 it has somewhere around 130-140 HP.


Im running the 1.6 with a zuk tranny, 6:1 zuk tcase, stock zuk 5spd, D44's with 37"boggers on 10" steel beadlocks.....im 2800# with a full tank (12gal).


Brent from TT is making rear dline disconects also....

unfortunaly no:rolleyes: mines just 1.3 and toy axles, however i willl soon have a extra tacoma 2.7 moter lying around, and i already have 1 toy case so the engine tranny dual case setup may be an option for the future. but thats not an imidiate goal right now





and i dont think a 17" TSL exists, ?? just saying that if i were building an extreme comp buggy, i would go with bigger rims to cut down on the sidewall slop:flipoff2:

I have a isuzu v-6 sitting in the corner of the shop now. It broke the scale @300lbs and it 's tall apx 6'' taller than my LS1, the LS1
weighs 380 and with the cam change should put out around 375hp. I'm just searching for a lighter rig. my chassie is only 275
so about the only way I can save a significant amount of weight
is engine, and possibly a dana 300 instead of the atlas,and smaller axles. The auto behind the 2.0 is a 200r isn't it. And I did pull a 1.6 block only out of a side kick by myseft but the scale was broke so I couldn't weigh it. By the way how much can you shave the heads and deck the block on zuks?
