Hey Marv!! sorry it took me so long.
Here they are....
DONT TELL MY GF SHE IS IN THIS ONE!!!
More pics of your GF!!!
ehh... how bout what she drives?
she dont like me taking pictures of her...
wat size toyos are those?
35's... i thought this was about Marv's buggy....
DAMNIT i suck..
The Green lives on. I haven't seen a shot of that think in a long time. Like before the two cases got put in it. Now, that was a honda motor with the manual tranny hooked up to the first case right?
I'm thinking that steering column set up might land you in the pages of Scary Steering!!
Do you have it running yet? How long till the test run?
Why? That pillow block for the steering shaft (before the 1st u-joint) is beefy. Speaking of u-joints, the u-joints and yokes for his steering inputs look bigger than what's on my stock driveshafts!
Just because it's not a straight shot to the box doesn't mean it's scary...
nah man, that picture does it NO justice. the stering is BEEF on that thing. the welds are not fully done yet, but i think marv was toying with it a bit still. he had talked about a few differetn ideas before he came up with that one.
all in all the buggy is AWESOME!! lots of thinking went into this one just as with his other one. Marv has a mind like no other. makes some cool Sh!t!!
once i have my shop back and all the tools i need in it im sure i will be doing the same type of things. funky and off the wall but functional.
I'm just pokin' fun! It's got about as many bends in the steering linkage as some stuff we've seen on Scary Steering, but it all looks good. Better clear that up before someone takes a flame thrower to me
It looks wild. I'd love to see a closer picture of how that steering is set up. I tried to follow it, but not enough pictures.
I assume the ice chest goes in the hatchback portion for balast?
Looks good, is it driveable yet?
Marv Said he wanted it driveable by next wheeling season if i recal correctly....
yes, marv has his ice chest holder on EVERYTHING!! and i dont blame him....
ill see if i have another picture of the steering.
Thanks for posting those pics. No doubt your quote above has been screamed out many times by last x-g/f......
I don't mind anyone tossing out any comments (positive or negative) about this creation. There's some unusual concepts being used on this car, and who knows.... some may work and others may not.
As to some of the ?'s:
Matt.... you know I got me some ice chest!
No not running yet. But progress IS being made.
Eric.... I won't argue that the steering is "different". Hopefully will be robust enough to hang. If not I go full hydro.
Keep the comments comin'.... I can take it!
How about this, any thought to a little taller spring setup or bigger tires? Seems with all that lightweight and design you could aim towards a slightly better approach angle. Maybe its just the way I'm looking but it doesn't look, great, not bad, but could be better, you know?
Yep.... Good point.
This rig is a "budget rig" to the max. I used the YJ leafs up front just to keep things simple, cheap - and I had them. My main purpose of building this rig is to prove that the "crazy drivetrain concept" will work. So I didn't want to invest that much in heim joints and fancy links. But I look at it too sometimes and think that the front axle pushed forward w/ a link setup may be a future mod that has to be done.
Ya I think you need to go a little bigger also, atleast that way we can see the buggy over the grass in the yard. It still looks cool, hope every thing works out for you.
nice cones lmao
Lookin' amazing man... keep up the work and keep posting pics!
yeah, the GF is a firefighter/EMT. she was doing a live in at the department she used to work at and her co-workers/friends had a little fun with it....
