It's been run a bit....he did a little dozering with it on a local obstacle course last weekend and some how cut a tire. Needs lots of seat time and some tinkering with the rear steer electrics.

When is Canada? 7 July Twisted Trails watch the Bounty Run and play with the buggy. I was at Twisted Trails on the 9th of June with Jim Gerst, between him and Dale got a lot of good advice and ideas.

Gnarly blue machine. Now we're talking.

Erin, no poking here, you need more motor to do this stuff. Sounds good in the beginning but then it doesn't sound like it's running too spiffy. Looks good though.

Almost seems like you need a little lower gears for getting out of the hole a little more snappy like? Was it missing a bit after the roll? Looks great though! Sounds decent too. You ever going to be able to crawl with it?

My old man was up at the dunes this weekend in his sand car and he said he saw your buggy sitting in the dune parking lot all day, must have not got it running right yet?

I think we have talked once or twice, but if you ever need a hand, I live in manistee and is not that far from you I think. I am always looking to help others to further my knowledge (plus I dont have to spend money on the parts)

Nice rig by the way.
