Buggy Specific

OK, I never saw it as a hexagon on wheels.
I sort of missed that.
I designed the Hypersprint on my Brother in laws computer while on holiday in NZ years ago.
He was working for Ford at the time as head of their computer department & "borrowed" a high end PC for a couple of weeks.
I happened to be traveling with a copy of Solidworks & my backup files.
(I knew I would get bored).
It developed over the years & the first versions of the PIRCV rear end were actually from the last of the Hypersprints that were produced.
Paul Morris, Crompton & Robbie Boldger purchased Hypersprint kitsets, but they were earlier versions & not quiet as good as the last of the series which had the 930 CV rears.

The Hypersprint was excellent for rough road rally type driving, but not really a buggy for getting air.
High speed cornering is where it shinned.

Beautifull bigfella. I love to hear a bit of history. This was a well designed buggy.
Your right, It doesnt handle massive jumps as tracy found out when he cracked his sump on Saturday just gone.
BUT. This does have rally blood and can be refined. Is it possible, just maybe you can have a look at redesigning this model, (And don't say " Buy the Cuda " ) to encorporate heavy rally cross arms and suspension?

We don't want to turn this sport into a single chassis catagory,

Yep.
A pushrod "next generation Hypersprint" buggy is on the agenda.
But like everything else all the other stuff has to be done first.
Ho, Hum.

Do you mean like a turbo/non turbo 4? because thats getting serious. MAkes a pirahna seem..., well pretty light actually.
To be honest, I'm not sure where your heading.

So this type of setup would kick arse on gravel surfaces such as Northam for example?
