That chassis looks nice. Looks much better without the large side panels like on their racers. Looking forward to how you skin it.

Any chance you can snag a pic of the trans mount? Is that a flat plate with dimples?

Thanks. The side panels I haven't figured out if I like yet or not. I do have a couple of idea on how to close the sides in differently.

There us a pretty good pic of it on page 2. Your right thou its a flat plate with dimples in it.

I just talked to Derek a couple days ago and he was telling me he sold one out here. Nice to see it coming together. Derek is a great guy to deal with.

Nice build. I wish i would have seen this picture earlier. After having one buggy where I had to pull the engine to remove the transmission, I vowed to never have that problem again. Can you remove the trans without pulling the engine?

The can is starting to come together. Center console is in and the dash needs just a little fine tuning and its done.




Rear suspension is done.

Starting trimming the hood to but. Need to wait on the brown truck to drop off more parts
