i cant get the front suspension to stay up

doofenshmirtz (author)2010-12-28

I think u could make it an rc buggy if you tried or if youuse elastic bands you could make it 4 wheel drive but I think its good enough now

ferrari484 (author)2009-08-05

i would like to call this the best suspension there is

Acepilot42 (author)ferrari4842009-09-03

if i knew how to post pictures i would show you my suspension designs. you might have second thoughts on ninganas buggy.

ferrari484 (author)Acepilot422009-11-11

Yeah well i typed that before trying it out and well it is't that great but still.
For a week now i am trying to build a monstertruck whit suspension and stearing. I am using about the same design. I am doing it so that  that you are able  to hook it up to cyber knex engine's and make it rc. But because i haven't got cyber knex engine. I am stuck whit 2 engine's from a crane. That are hooked up to 1 remote i you know what i mean.

ferrari484 (author)Acepilot422009-12-28

slipknot 666 (author)ferrari4842010-03-17

ferrari484 (author)slipknot 6662010-03-18

 i listend to a couple of songs on youtube not bad but not really my taste 

slipknot 666 (author)ferrari4842010-03-18

yer they are not really my type of music either they are good for easy listening, i usually listen to hardcore and deathcore stuff i don't like slipknot as much anymore either

ferrari484 (author)slipknot 6662010-03-21

talking about easy listening i like pop, rock, metal, and some other stuff. 

 whats that got to do with anything.

jeez al i asked was if you knew of them

Great buggy. Reminds me of a nitro rc.

danymw (author)GTRPLR19952009-07-22

Killer~SafeCracker (author)2009-07-04

Looks good 4.5*

DrWeird117 (author)2009-07-03

Some of this was stolen from a book.

i invented the whole lot all by my self. which part did you think i copied?

I see stuff from the "Crumple Car", in a late '90s-early '00s book. I think.

CRAZYCREATOR187 (author)2009-07-02

glad you like it

I_am_Canadian (author)2009-07-02

Smokin'! Great work!

coreyt (author)2009-07-02

quite a cool looking buggy reminds me of early tamiya style rc cars i think a v2 would be great with much more reinforcements and just generally more bulk
