work 10 hours every day this week.., and laying sleepless in nights and wonder how i should do the next step... But still enjoy every hour I put into it....
Hope the front suspension do the job, shocks have tiny axles.. test and see if they bend or brake

Cuda hit the ground today, first test. Everything turns out great, engine run well. Have to do some changes with suspension, stronger coils.
Some creepy noises from left cv joint, hope this is normal on the first run?

It's always something more to do.. I need paint, but after it is tested and changes is done. Have to order a quick turn rack and pinion.. Take tho one from Edge, mine is to slow so it's easy to loose control:) Fox shocks is on the list of upgrades but dont have money now.

Fuel tank

Postby aschjem » Mon Sep 13, 2010 1:47 am

Going to make a new fuel tank and found this in a store that sells hydraulic equipment. Filler cap for hydraulic systems have a good breather and the cap is finish with 6 bolt circle. Perfect! Also thinking of a level gauge on side of the tank.
What is the best material to use in the fuel tank, alu or stainless steel? Guess alu is more difficult to weld

I am a student so I build my byggy on a low budget, and oppgreade when I have some money to spend:-) Rear shocks is actually very swedish, they come from the front end on a Volvo 240 :lol: Think most of the models are the same, important is to have the insert shock absorber. Disassemble the whole thing, cut away everything you don,t need and do your modification. Use the same rod end size that Fox or Edge use, then it is easy to uppgreade later on.
Have a look at this tread in forum: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2445&p=18939&hilit=home+made+coilovers#p18939

Front shocks is from FK automotive, with Koni insert. Short travel but works for me.

Okay, save some money here and there but a tips is to buy most of the complicated parts from Edge like centre drive cartridge etc. You need a lot of skills to make them yourself and it is more expensive to order some company to make them for you.

Have my buggy out for a winter-test today. Not the best conditions, zero degrees and a lot of snow on the track makes it difficult to handle.

Have to take apart the hole thing and make it ready for painting soon. Black frame and something else on the A-arms. Not sure yet.

Also looking for a new engine but cant decide if I should go for a Hayabusa or something from Kawasaki.
Engine I use now is good enough but want more :) Hayabusa is the number one engine for this kind of use but have to pay a little less for a zx 14.
There is more sparepart avible for the busa and many experts in here to ask if it is any problem.

any advice?

Looks great.
I have never driven a buggy in the snow.

We are having a heat wave here in Perth & you post that !!!

Cannot wait for winter to come around !

Looks like we are dealing with different problems here :) Now, the worst part of the winter is over, longer days and better temperatur. 2 weeks ago we had about minus 20-30 degrees. So a heat wave would be great, but I guess I dont know what it is like.
I dont have a heated garage and can stay out for 2-3 hour in minus 10 to 15 degrees. Try to generate a little heat from intense welding.

Had a new ride on yesterday, perfect condition and better traction. More practice and it might be real fun. Side of the roade is soft so a crash is no problem, just have to stay away from the trees.
Going to the shop and buy some ice spickes today :)
