itzandy (author)the_boss_builder2012-05-15

the_boss_builder (author)itzandy2012-05-15

i can't even believe i wrote those awful bubble-texts.noob

the_boss_builder (author)danymw2012-03-14

danymw (author)james42010-03-08

james4 (author)danymw2010-12-29

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?

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

lukas rider (author)2010-03-10

nice u should make a trophy truck

Acepilot42 (author)2010-03-06

i made a buggy about 3 1/2 feet long and it has 4 wheel independent suspension and it is rear wheel drive. its soooooo sweet.

stefan3d2 (author)2010-02-16

ya i know

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

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 ;)

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

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..

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

Vynash (author)2009-12-26
