Sneak peak Subuggy

Recommended Posts

The latest spy photo was released today on the Subuggy.

 

Intelligence analysts suggest it looks very near completion.:banana:

 

However reports from undisclosed high ranking individuals say the Electrical, Fuel and Breaking systems have yet to be installed/completed.

 

Officials are unclear on how to release two or more photos in one thread?:cornfuzz:

 

Glenn,

82 Hatch, almost transformed......:temper:

01 Forester, jealous....................:madder:

that looks like it's coming along!! are you doing the straight up tube-frame, or do you have the panels to make it look rhino-ish? what kind of wheels you using?

Should loose around a #1000 pounds over what the Hatch had. I'm hoping it will weigh in around #1300-1400.:banana:

 

It will be a 4-5 seater conversion and will look closer to a Scorpion, than a Rhino, when I'm finished.

It will have aluminum panels in front middle and rear on the side.

The top will have a built in cargo rack that will tie into the rear rollcage (I call it the Xterra look). The hood will be the classic Scorpion style.

 

To start off, (this may change) I will be using two sets of tires, my stock mud and snow's (because they're still new) and some 26X12X12 ATV tires (these will be custom made). I'm not using bigger tires because our gear ratios are so high (I value climbing).:D

 

BY LOOSING WEIGHT my relative horsepower and torque is increased--so is my clearance. ......:burnout:

 

11 inches down the center!!! 20 inches at the cockpit floor!!!

 

I'll quit Quacking on now..... :grin:

 

Glenn,

82 Hatch, transforming...... :temper:

Tons of Hatch body parts available soon.........!

No body, I'll do that later along with windshield, lights, wipers, etc. Two seater with rear more like a pick-up bed. Just the frame rig, but all wired, plumbed and ready for the road, but naked.
