Kinda weird you're asking other people (not on payroll) to do the innovating and designing for you guys...

easy, cut stinger off, re-weld it in pointing back

Really all i wanted to accomplish with this thread was for the potential customers to voice what they want on a buggy, no to come up with new ideas. That's our job.

Yes, but to incorporate every unique feature of all the new brands? A little cheap to me.

How about this, find a way to mount the engine laid down. Can you say ultra lcg? Also, belt drive.

Belt drive 1/8th has been done in the early 90's (BMT 911).. It failed pretty bad. Also, I'm willing to bet that nitro engines won't run nearly as good laid on their sides.

Very well, would be heavier as well, also, airplanes and some onroad cars have already used laid down engines.
