Looking at building possibly 2 Barracuda Buggies.Howz your Piranha coming along?
Do you have any picks of the build and are you building from scratch with the plans or have you purchased and shipped a kit?

Im in Glasgow and have got a Sidewinder (KLR650 powered)

Its not ready to drive yet as it still needs tuned because of the airfilter and exhaust mods I done when fitting the engine. Hope to get it done this week sometime tho as am desperate to have a shot on it!

Gd luck with the piranaha build

Hi All,

I am looking to build a cuda but am running into issues with finding places to use it aroudn Aberdeen.

I did find the central scotland autograss club based in Perthshire but that is about it.

Anyone here on the forum based in the NE of scotland?

Cheers
Mike

im in the engineering trade mate, so its only cost us so far 200quid for all the lazer cut bits and all the steel for the whole frame and swings arms. But thats the joys of being in the trade and having connections mate. For the shocks and spings i got in touch with a company called Gaz coilovers. http://www.gaz-shocks.co.uk i quoted them the info for the shocks and springs, and it was £110 rear shock each, £85 front shock each, and something like £23 a spring i think and there made to the spec of the drawings. weve still got alot more work to do. we do need to order items from edge like the stub axles, hubs with caliper brackets, bit n bobs like that. just for the fact that it works out cheaper for us to buy them n get them delivered then it is to buy the material and make them ourselves. But money is running tight for both of us haha.

heres some pics of what weve got done so far:
