Well, I just got done taking a run through the parking lot down the street and posted a short video. I put the buggy into a few skids and then some higher speed laps, very interesting driving an 80lb vehicle around.

Here is the link...

Looking good all finished up, seems to handle nicely. How does it do suspension wise on larger bumps/almost jumps? I would understand if you prefer not actually jumping it lol When you put lots of time into a project you don't want to trash it.

The bearings diff idea is really growing on me, opens a whole new type of setups. Nice build, do you have plans to get it dirty a bit? I am guessing some loose dirt or muddy dirt would require less space to drive it because of the lower speeds, and make for some nice vids

Well, I gave it a shot and attempted a few jumps. There just isn't enough power from that 4-cycle to get much air. The buggy survived and at least proved the design a bit.

Hello mate, I don't think anyone would care if it jumped or not. The main thing is, you have a fully functional home made beast that takes what you dish out.

win-win.
Great work !

Not putting down the guys that buy their cars but theres nothing like the feeling you get when you can drive a car you built with your own hands. Looks like she`s a real beast mate, bloody well done
