For Pink's?

I hope you are not talking about pink slips.....
You would be out of your mind if any of us would put our buggies up for grabs in one race.
Off road racing is thankfully a hell of a lot better than this underground racing of rice burners.

It would actually be a disgrace for you to think we would put our buggy's up just like that. Any way, when we have a buggy why would be want two?

that’s just poetic Japanese racing for you.

If you want a buggy, build one yourself.

Jet,
yeh i do plan on building my own
just waiting on my prints to get to the states :lol: :D

but i don't think i would give it up that easily either but i don't know of to many atv's with a 0-60mph time of 3-5 sec

my KFX700 isn't even close

ours is far from being able to call a racing league... there is still a lot of work to be done. you could do time trials tho...

Edge buggy's dont race yet...

Are you talking about Off road racing?

i think harvey is about 3-4km long? most of the races are about 200km long?

6k quite a chunk of cash when you pay someonelse to do the fabriction or is your buddy (friend) building for nothing :?

but all that matters is that you have a fine piece of machinery,...
when it is done :D

been to gettysburg so that isn't to far to drive for a sunday ride.... :D
