Default My Custom Buggy Project

I bought a New Bright 1:6 2-WD car that I got at Big Lots for $60 2 years ago. It went 5 mph with a motor a inch long so I got bored.Tonight, I took it apart to modify it to be a show car, but then it looked capable of off-road abuse, but it has a plastic diff in the rear, on-road tires, no shocks whatsoever and no slipper clutch. Hopefully there are metal gears, shocks and slipper clutches that can fit it. I'm planning to make it a 2-wd buggy with dual motors and batteries and perhaps dual servos. Does anyone have any suggestions?

If your computer is good, then Firefox will do wonders and you all will prefer it over IE 7.

Anyway, how are you going about posting the pictures?

sign up at a pic hosting site like www.photobucket.com and upload your pics there... in a web-friendly size like 640x480 etc

Then you post links to the pics in your posts here. If you use the "link" tool above ^ it will show the pic. Otherwise it will show a hyperlink to click on to go to the host site. (photobucket)
