A turbo crossover pipe would help eliminate those vulnerable y-pipes. Other than that I like what I can see.

Hmmm, wonder what they'd build using Legacy/Impreza drivetrain and suspension parts?

I was thinking of building a buggy, but I'm thinking more on the solid axle rock crawler style. I need something under 600kg though because I want to tow it legally behind the Brat.

I mentioned the Legacy/Impreza platform because that opens the door for WRX axles and bigger tires & transfercase.

90-94 legacy EJ22. I'll use the engine, dash, wiring harness and engine cradle. To mount the cradle instead of putting a lift on the buggy I'll move the cradle up 5 inches to allow an axle up front using an EA81 crossmember and control arms (moved forward about 12 inches to improve approach angle and the lower crossmember will act as a skidplate for the oilpan/exhaust system.) I'm using the 81 stuff vice the 82 because I've read that the mod is easier with the 82 stuff....but what about the legacy stuff how are those axles? With the engine up higher it will allow the transfer case to be installed higher allowing for more ground clearance and of course improved gearing. The buggy will be lengthened about 2 feet and widened at the rear to allow for a rear seat like Sweet 82 has in his buggy. I would like to use an Automatic instead of a standard for crawling purposes and I've read all about the 4EAT modified to lock up. I understand that most don't like the auto's because of gearing but doesn't the tcase and a big trans cooler fix that issue? Or is there a better auto out there that would work better? This buggy is a blank slate and the guy's can make it work so let me know what you think......Jer
sounds great, I would use all the Legacy gear, and grab another 4.11 rear diff for up front,or grab 2- 4.44 diffs , the legacy front suspension arms are much stronger and your not stuck with the old 4 bolt pattern , auto should be fine
