Your right chevota, what have I been thinking? Not updating everyone on the progress on my buggy and how things turned out............100 lashings with a wet noodle my way please (pause while I crouch in the corner from the pain!)
I got the damn thing running and tuned pretty well for the sea level I live at. The brakes work awsome---12" wilwood rotors with 4 piston wilwood calipers-----and my turn brakes are absolutley awsome. I got the thing to drive and found out I got a bad 5 rib tranny. Realizing we had more HP than a stock clutch could handle, we ordered up a 1700lb Kennedy plate with a Organic disc. No slippage now, it just like light switch, its either on, or its off. Anyway, put our original 3 rib back in, and immidiatley blew 1st gear!!!! whoops. We then installed our last 3 rib. No more 4000RPM dumps on the clucth on concrete to see if we can pull a wheely.
Got it running good, then we went on a trail ride with the Cascade Crawler bunch and tore it up, not the rail, but the trails. Check out the pics of the run, there is one good one of my climbing a hill catching some air www.cascadecrawlers.com
under the Tillamook trail ride section. We had a blast. At one point, I got to ride quad while my BIL drove, with the air suspension and 13.5" travel, the rail articulates like a bastard. The best part of hill climbing is when you get crossed up or can not go any farther, just work the steer brakes like a tractor and away you go.
We rode to the 3000 foot level in Tillamook and that elevation really took its tole on the one carb per cylinder syndrome. I am now in the process of installing Toyota Fuel Injection. Should be done early May.
I can recieve your email, it may take a while to download, but i am suer its worth the wate. I have 2 myself that are very cool.
Who needs foot brakes, when there is WOT and steer brakes.
