I have taken this buggy of base and have made one f1 with suspension and direction, the problem is that I lack wheels and the photos not to be raised.

how do you do the steering system?

author
danymw (author)perloo2010-03-14

 see every step. if you build all parts,you will have the steering wheel, it's not that hard to make

stefan3d2 (author)2010-02-16

ya i know

author
stefan3d2 (author)2010-02-14

its nice looking and looks strong but i built it and tested against my buggy i built and its not as strong as my buggy.


but i still like the design and layout

author
danymw (author)stefan3d22010-02-15

 to be honest,i ripped half of the number of parts just to put it on instructable so people can build it without needing a lot of parts.
can you send a picture of both please?i really would like to see them ;)

author
stefan3d2 (author)danymw2010-02-15

this is my buggy i can build it alot more stronger it doesnt have any suspension but i can make it with suspesion i just dont have any rubber bands right now.

im making mods for it right now once im done i will post another pic again

please comment back with what you think of it and any ideas i can do with it

author
danymw (author)stefan3d22010-02-16

 you don't have to use rubberbands, look in the steps on how to build the rear suspension,i wrote something about 'no rubberband suspension', i hope that helps.   i don't see any pic..

author
stefan3d2 (author)2010-02-15

ok i will send you a pic of it im still making mods to it.

im going to you use your idea for the suspension that little tri piece that you can put spacers on
