Thanks, tvguy
There it is. No this is not the next EROCC champ but one hell of a trail rig. It will be way to big for comp.
I have some newer pictures I will get up tonight.
Now everybody PM Frankie and tell him to finish.

You mean you couldnt picture a 4 seat scorpian before you saw this picture? Not picking on this design I understand form follows function, thats why all these full tube buggies look so damn similar. Hope to see some more recent pictures

IMHO - the 4 seater Scorpion looked too long, this one looks better, more compact...
