I'm wondering if anyone here has ever heard of somebody dropping the front suspension with motor and tranny and the complete rear suspension and welding up a lightweight tube frame for it to make their own 4 wheel drive buggy. The power to weight should be amazing and I would think this would be a fairly simple build. I wish I had a runner I could chop up, but all I have are dead ones and my daily driver. Which I anit cuttin it up, love that car:)
Here is a loose idea of what I have in mind. I would put 15" 6 lug wheels on it with some big monster mudder tires for extra ground clearance.
