I found that the soft swaybars work great on both dirt and road but I now run the stiff swaybar up front and none in the rear when I am racing in the dirt.

Its all hand-made by me with a chopsaw,welder,die grinder and plumbers turbo-head torch with mapp-gas to heat and bend the tubes..Total cost of the project to build was $240.00...all the steel was free and most parts were taken from razor electrics and chinese pocketbikes I had laying around that were beyond rebuilding but good for parts..the engine is 35cc and was bought brand new on sale at Sears for 79.00..it was port-timed for power with a boost port added and a hp carb with boost bottle was added aswell as a performance exhaust from a stand-up scooter and Iridium sparkplug with hp wire

The design was sort of supposed to emulate an old Tamiya SuperHornet but I never got around to making the aluminum sheetmetal body with wing ...








The front shocks are steering dampers for chinese pocketbikes modified with springs and spring retainer

Default Awesome Roll Cage.

Great Build. I've always been crazy about the look of a steel roll cage. I wish someone made one of these for the 1/8th scale class of buggies. I would buy a few for my Hyper 9E. I learn to weld years ago- I would enjoy welding one of these roll cages up for my buggy. I'll have to look into buying some equipment to make this project possible

Thank you for posting the pictures up of your RC's- They look great

Thanks alot..Im very sure youll be able to pull it off if you give it a try.There are alot of mega talented builders out there that can build circles around my buggy but it was just a fun home built in the basement project non-the-less..

Yes Lars is correct...The homebuilt buggy would be considered 1/5 scale...The King Motors 5b is 1/5 scale...

The 1/6 scale is indeed a Traxxas Monster Buggy..Its a special edition model that Traxxas here in the US had no idea about its existence...Although Im not the original owner of it the guy I got it from was stationed in Germany back in 2000 bought the car and never got a chance to ever run it plus it didnt have a radio/remote system at all but it did come with the servos ...I got it for $300.00 brand new in the box in 02....I later found out after I destroyed the box by leaving it in a leaky shed that it was sought after by collectors and worth some loot...What makes my car a special edition is it has dual steering servos and came with a Mitsubishi 26cc engine instead of the 23cc..
