    Custom Sand Rail/Dune Buggy

    I am making a sand rail, but it won't be run on sand because there is none where i am at... It will be ran on dirt, gravel, asphalt, concrete, and in fields. I am using the front end from a traxxas spirit(looks similar to a sand rails), a clod buster rear end, full tube chassis made from 3/16 brake line and welded together with a graphite bottom plate, futaba s3305 servo, fm radio, and a 5700kv mamba system. It is just about finished, still needs a few more hours of work though. I have about 15 hours of work, half a spool of welding wire, and over 150" of 3/16 brake line it this thing. I will load some pics up in just a little bit. When i load the pics don't laugh please (i am only 15 and this was my first time welding anything all by myself and i designed as i went so it is not the best job out there.

    RE: Custom Sand Rail/Dune Buggy

    ya it has a wide wide rear end but i will put some wider 2.2 truck front ribs on the front to make the front a bit wider, pics are getting cropped now so in the next few minutes, my welds are huge but i did gring them down but the were huge so it dont look the best.

    RE: Custom Sand Rail/Dune Buggy

    that is pretty sweet. i like the solid rear axle suspension setup you made there. might i suggest angling the shocks a bit to get more travel because im pretty sure its you going to be launching that thing

    again. that is one fatty rear end. haha

    RE: Custom Sand Rail/Dune Buggy

    It looks awesome but those are some serious booger welds! Hit that frame with a sander.... it would make all the difference in a finished look.

    RE: Custom Sand Rail/Dune Buggy

    ya i will get wheels to make the width look better front to rear. i have sanded it for over an hour with a dremel at 10k rpm and took off alot, it will stay like that for a little while. Ya i thnk i might angle the shocks some later on also. I hope the rear frame shock mounts hold on some big launches.... I am thinking about some 2.2 truck ribs in front, and some paddles and somethen else for the rear.

    RE: Custom Sand Rail/Dune Buggy

    yep it is steel 3/16 brake line welded together. it is still light amazingly, less then half the weight of an e-savage.
