Sweet buggy, is that a fuel cell in the front?
By mike g 536 Date 2008-10-31 17:00
no thats not a fuel cell, its a stock tank i just "frenched in" a billit fuel door

What kind of power is that buggy making. Looks like the wheelie bars have been used a couple times.
By mike g 536 Date 2008-12-31 16:36
the car hasnt been on a dyno yet, but a close guess is around 160hp maybe a bit more. the car weighs 920 pounds.

You need to check your scale, 920lbs. is about 400lbs lighter than a light Manx buggy which has a couple less inches in the chassis. This weighs 790lbs.with no torsions and all made from .055 wall Chromoly tubing along with no front brakes and Mitchell lightweight wheels.

I do like the way is sits!

Is that a regular twist off cap under the billet door, on the hood of the rat imp? I am trying to fix a leaky fuel cap. When I fill the tank too high I have fuel leaking from the rubber hose in between or the vent from the cap. I am thinking about putting a billet door on the hood but I only have about 2 1/2 inches in between the tank and underside of the hood.
