The Dune Buggy Project
How it all started ...:

First of all I bought a nitro t-maxx about 3 years ago. Now i can finnaly say I truly hate nitro engines. They are high maintenace, unefficient and very noisy. They are always a pain in the ass (well traxxas anyways) and very hard to start. Nitro fuel is expensive and you always look like a christmas tree when you go to the track. Gotta have glow plugs, plug wrench and they are the hardest thing in the world to start. So I decide to swith to gas.. last summer i built a 50 inch 1/4 scale gas powered crackerbox, so i figured i could start another project this summer. So i got all my tools and went off to work. First I drove around to find cheap alloy (1/8). So I went to a find the cheapest place. I came across a friend of my dads (Mike), he gave me a place that he buys from where i got a sample of aluminum (40" X 10") for FREE. Thanks a lot Mike and BLB Manufact. secretary Janet. I couldnt of done it without you. Then i was off to work... with many parts i previously owned and then i was in search of a motor. I went to a very good frined of mine at lawncare plus. Where i purchased many engines for very affordable prices. These are used & abused engines that are no use for anyone in the lawn care business. So i picked them up with a clutch for around each. The other parts were found at canadian tire, home depot and canadian bearing. So far the car has a the engine mounted, muffler system, servo saver, axle housings, drive shafts and ball bearing on all 4 wheels. It still needs a roll cage, wheels (tires), brake system, steering servo (1/4 scale hitec HS-405 MG) and the radio system. Refer to picture page for process pics by date. Hopefully i should finish by the end of august 2003. Thank you all for coming to my site LiNUx ;)
