Default Crosseyed Customs (BADNANA)

Started my new buggie . Taking all i have learned from past builds and puting them in this. Using my engine 572,400 trans and changing to a low max 3 to 1. I have gotten very frustrated with the front 60 being the week link so i totally bumped my head and in the process of building new front and rear (details to come)
