Re: 2 wheel drive buggie
they climb better, and go thru mud better. I know it is hard to believe, but they do. It is the kind of thing you just have to see for yourself. Here in iowa we don't have rocks, what we have is mud, and steep hill climbs. the place where I wheel at almost didn't let them in, because they were afraid they would be getting stuck all the time, boy were they suprised.
these buggies are nothing more than a stock chevy 2wd truck, with the motor moved back, the front narrowed, and a 4 link coil setup in the back. two break pedals, one for each rear tire, so no need for a locker, in fact he said the locker created more problems then it helped. Not alot of time or money invested, and less parts to break.
the guy i talked to has helped with making around 15 of these, and on average he has 1500-2000$ in each one including the vehical itself and the tires.
