approximative

Step 3: Steering system (SS)

build all these.

Step 5: Top cover

put the second big part on the others and connect them.

Step 7: Front steering

build exactly TWO (2) of these, symmetrical. it is step by step and if followed, it should get right

Step 12: Last things

 front wheels,remove from each side a white rod and put a blue rod
in the steering "rod" do you have to cut the peices????????!!!!!!!!! also its awesome 5* for sure
never mind i cut em anyway;)
i tryed not to but it dont fit if you dont so i used some old broken ones lol
alright but as i said i ended up cutting the pieces any way but its nice to know that it wasnt just for nothing
can you make the steps more easer to use please thank u
it's good now.
i can't even believe i wrote those awful bubble-texts.noob
danymw is totaly rite the steps are super easy it took me only like 1 hour to build but the bubble texts can be helpful at times

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)  perloo4 years ago
 see every step. if you build all parts,you will have the steering wheel, it's not that hard to make

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)  stefan3d24 years ago
 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 ;)
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)  stefan3d24 years ago
 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..
stefan3d24 years ago
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
Awesome, The pics are a little cruddy but its a great build!

Very nice. I suggest you separate the tags by individual words. This could use more views.
