UPDATE. It is Alive!!!

Been a long time since I have been here but I just wanted to give everyone an update. So I sapped the cheap cage and modified the stock cage to fit over the motor. So finally there is something that will hold up until I have time to finish a full cage. In Ike meantime A did a mild rebuild (rings) on...

BTW- I know all about the "just mocking it up" excuse. I started "mocking up" my current buggy in "mild steel" saying that I would build the real frame out of 4130 after I got the basic shape down.

I wil also give you these general rules. No tube should intersect another tube midspan. In other words, all attempts should be made to keep loads on tubes in a push pull through their axis. Avoid bends when ever possible, particularly at midspan, and without gusset. Look to your pilot for a guide. ...

More pics of the ody now with the beginings of a cage. the cage was all hand bend and welded and i think it looks good so far. It is made with a combination of light weight EMT Conduit and thick wall (0.225) 3/4 seamed steel for the main structural bars. i have smashed it around quite a bit and it h...

well that wasnt because of weight... that was simply because coming up the hill, he hit a little bump, which caused the front tires to go up, and as they were coming back down, the rears hit the same bump, simply accelerating that forward "nose dive" motion... nothing to do with weight up front... t...
