  1. We have very similar buggy's. They are rocket ships and they handle awesome, but I've never got the ride quite as good as I think it could be. I wish mine had the bypasses.
  2. No problems here. As a dealership technical, I use them everyday. Ive actually had the opposite experience and gave up on buying new Snap On tools about 10 years ago. They're overpriced and I feel that the quality has gone down. I bought a Matco socket set two years ago to replace my worn out Snap On set and I haven't had a failure yet.
  3. I'm back. Thanks for getting it fixed so I could log back in.

  5. I built these a while back. Much better than any folding chair.
  6. A turbo is a great way to add power, but you'll definitely want an intercooler. You might also rethink the transmission upgrade. I bet a LS1 with a turbo on low boost will make more than an S4 is rated for.
  7. I like the New Age Cabinets. I bought a few two years ago and they're holding up great to daily use.
  8. You'll get a ton of different opinions on this. It's been discussed many times before. On my enclosed trailer, I went with Firestone Transforce HT. Its an LT rated truck tire. That's what was on it when I replaced them last year, and two of the tires were over 10 years old. I've never had any issues with them.

  10. I'd buy it if I could fit. I don't think the price is out of line at all.
  11. 428 hp at the wheels from my LS1. I put the buggy together in 2013 with a slightly smaller cam and switched to a larger one in 2018. The trans has been apart twice to fix shift fork damage caused by the AJ Speed Shifter. No gears have been replaced and I've had no more trouble since I switched to a PBS shifter. I don't beat the car up through the whoops, but I do launch the car from 6000+ rpm when drag racing. Its a 2000lbs mid engine buggy on 33 inch paddles. Another buggy in our group put over 470hp to the wheels. He broke the 2d case and reverse gear after getting stuck a few years ago. His buggy weighs 2800lbs and he hasn't had any other gear issues.
  12. I was looking at the Fox valving specs, and they don't list the 1.75 or1.8 shim for the rebound side of the 2.5" shock. That would be why I don't have it in my shocks.
  13. There is a way and it really wouldn't be that hard, but I'm not going to do it to this car. I don't want to invest that much more into a buggy that I'm already planning on selling in a few years. My daughter will be old enough to start riding along soon, so I need to build a 4 seater.
