            I've got a pair of cbr1000rr engines, may do a turbo set up once this is running. It will be a two seat buggy. Trying to keep light weight and maintain strength. Chassis is 1.5 and 1.25 DOM in various wall sizes. 30in tires and good brakes. A arm front suspension and trailing arm rear, spending a good bit of time getting geometry correct. Hoping to find a vw bug tunnel with title to weld into the floor pan.

              I was gonna do a thread on the rebuilding of my mini Baja car. After seeing this there is no competition, yours is gonna be so much cooler. Bunch of questions time!
              What are you using to model the suspension geometry? What are you gonna use for a rack or steering box? Plans to limit bump steer?

                I'm interested in the steering too, hurry. Killer work

                  Do it! We need more build threads. I used vsusp.com to figure out the basic geometry. Its going to use a rack with spreader, and I should be able to locate it where it will have minimal bump steer.

                    There was a guy on youtube to built a sxs buggie like yours.

                    He used a 1000cc bike engine iirc, and he said he wished he had used a sxs engine. I believe the torque curve on the sxs was better compared to the liter bike engine.

                    Regardless I think it will be a cool build, I have debated doing the same.

                      A long time ago I had a single seat 600cc buggy that was fun when it wasn't broken. This will be heavier no doubt but should still be able to get out of its own way. I thought about a 3 cyl turbo diesel but it's more work, weight and expense than I want to take on. I just checked some cbr1000rr torque curves and it's pretty flat. This is a learning experience on the way to a full size car build in the future, and mostly about figuring out suspension and car design.

                          Thanks. Its still a work in progress. We started finishing off some loft space upstairs but it's on hold until I can get some sheetrock guys in. Still need to build a staircase and finish a ton of trim. We did spend a bit of time outside building stone walls and leveling/seeding dirt to hopefully get grass to grow.

                            Thanks,

                            I need to go back to pirate and see your other thread. Did you start with drawling your plans in cad, or is this a build as you go?

                            your parts make me think you have a cnc plasma you are using.

                              Totally build as i go, the scrap pile is evidence of this . Finish a part, get a better idea and make another.

                              I've got a decent little shop with a cnc plasma and a bunch of other stuff.
