Very, very nice!

As i was reading the title "homebuilt gas buggy with 25cc engine" i thought, "oh, another project not to be finished as so many others", but here the car is finished before the project-thread has barely started

Looking very much forward to see some more pictures.

This is one of the favorite custom build's I've seen. Great job Customrc100. It look's so realistic. I like those wheels / tires too.

Hello, you now have even fans from Germany

I am also a very long way in this hobby, but what you've built is sensational!

I am also planning for a long time to build a rc sand rail / desert truck.

you have tips for me, I should note?

sorry my bad english, it's been a few years ago when I took in school


greetings from Germany,

Patrick / Sand Rail

Hello my good man,

Do you mind telling me how you made up the 2 piece metal rims which you used the ABSring for bead lock, were they purchased or did you make them up too?

Iam thinking of making up 4" 2 piece rims the same way but just can't figure out what you've done here in the attachement.

Thank you

Apachy
