Early 30th bday present to me

Recommended Posts

Bought me a long travel, money being wired tomorrow. Test drove it while I was in AZ last week. Pretty basic car, but very low hours. Not really a build since it's better to buy them used/done, but I'll be changing a few things. Getting rid of the ugly vinyl and painting the skins will obviously be one of them.

 

 

Sandcars.net V3 chassis, Turnkey 400hp LS1, Mendeola 2D transaxle, FMS mid board hubs

 

Pics from the CL ad, none of my own yet.

Congratulations, that should be a lot more fun at Silver Lake. :thumbup:

 

 

But I agree, I've seen a lot of buggys in person and online and that has to be one of the ugliest ! :)

I took my time and did a rendering of a new vinyl scheme that i think fits you well.

It's not JW's, and it looks like someone just went to the back of the line for buggy rides. :P

 

Nice! should take some jumps well. The wrap however, reminds me of those books where you put your nose to the page and pull it away to see the hidden image.

Looks exactly like that. First thing that is going once it's gets to MI.

should be fun! congrats!
question about the motor though.....you said Turn Key LS1. Did they use 706 heads and a truck intake to make 400hp. Not bustin balls, just an observation of what was in the pic...

Yup, truck heads and intake.

 

 

This package with the truck intake.

I would assume they use the 706s for the smaller combustion chamber. Once I get all the receipts in hand I'll probably see if turnkey can give me more specs.
