The Space Frame Chassis
The driver cockpit is wide & has ample room for a single seat. Ample head & foot room is provided for the taller driver while the steering wheel placement can be suited to meet the individual needs of the driver.

Designed for a standard polyethylene bucket style racing seat, the driver can easily slide the seating position up to 8″ from front to back with a standard seat glider.

Your safety is paramount. A standard 4 or 5 point racing harness keeps the driver where he belongs – inside the rollcage & securely strapped in his seat.

Rear Drive System
The rear drive system & integral Independent Rear Suspension (IRS) has been designed to allow the home builder the most engine options of any home built buggy on the market. You can install just about any kind of belt-driven snowmobile engine, chain or belt-driven street motorcycle engine, motocross dirt bike engine, or even a race-ready 20-26hp industrial engine from a leading engine manufacturer like Brigg’s & Stratton, Kohler or Honda engines.

There is also tons of space in the engine compartment for a gas tank or fuel cell, liquid cooled radiator, fan, tail lights, spare tire & more! Even the central braking system is integrated into the rear drive system.

Front Suspension & Steering System
Industry standard double a-arm front suspension pilots this off-road marauder. Coil-over-shocks mount to the lower a-arm to provide an economical yet reliable suspension system – with over 12″ of travel possible from full compression to full droop.

Only one jig to make for all 8 a-arms (both front & rear) make fabrication quick & easy. The detail for the jig is included for free in the plans!

The billet aluminum rack & pinion is specifically designed for off-road dune buggies. Add the adjustable tie rods & you can easily fine tune the wheel alignment making this an off-road ready steering system.

Complete your steering system with a stylish Grant brand steering wheel with a quick steering disconnect & you will not only look like the pro’s, you will be using exactly the same equipment too.

Professional 3D CAD Drawings
Our plans show superior detail of 3D assemblies making your construction much easier. Every part is fully checked in a 3D model before a 2D dimensioned production drawing is produced. This minimizes fabrication errors & “fit-up” problems normally associated with tubular chassis construction.

Detailed 2D parts accompanied by complete metric & imperial dimensions, material lists & even isometric views of sub-assemblies are our standard. Our expert CAD experience coupled with years of hands-on experience shows through in our fine plans.

When you purchase our plans, we don’t forget about you. We want to assist you through the entire process. Feel free to ask lots of questions before, during & after your construction phase into your tuning & driver stage. We are always here to help you.
