This Is My Mini-Buggy...

Recommended Posts

This is my Mini-Buggy...   :P

 

I fit in fine, and am 6' 2"'s tall.

(A big kid at 49 years of age!)

4 valve head, ported and polished installed...

It now has 2 intake, and 2 exhaust valves, rather than one of each.

It added a bunch of grunt, and raised my compression.

 


Racing pipe installed...

My upgraded clutch:

When you are climbing a hill, and it is steep, a stock buggy will drop it's rpm's pretty fast. Especiall the 150cc buggies that they now gear to try and hit 40 to 50 mph.

 

With my 2004 mountain goat gearing, and the 4 valve head, my buggy just keeps on climbing.

It's RPM's stay high, and it doesn't care about the hill... She is going to climb it!

 

I think they were correct to keep the top speed at 30, but the buggy advertising wars started, and the faster the buggy would go, the better the add looked. They began gearing them for faster top end speed.

 

And they will hit the advertized speed, given that a long flat surface is provided, with a strong tail wind!

 

Of course you can hold the buggies back with one hand, that are geared for 50mph, when they first take off. They wont tell you that in the add...   :)

 

My buggy however, would climb right over the fool who attempted to hold it back when I hit the gas...

 

She is a trail runner, with the power band right where I like it.

Under 30 mph is trail riding speed, and my buggy is loaded with power.

 


Racing carb, and UNI air installed... And numerous other things!

I love it!!

Plenty of power, and geared to top out at 30mph.

It does have a towing ball on the rear too.

No shifting, other than using reverse.

Gas, break, and steer. Easy to operate.

She is a mountain goat, and loves to climb!

Solid rear axle so when you goose er a bit, the rear end comes around quick... Fun for sure.

 

And IMO - Much safer than a quad.   ;)

Pretty slick man. Id love to have one of those. When I was a teenager we had a Honda Odysse which was similar to that but much simpler. We had a ton of fun with that. Enjoy!

Thanks...

 

Did Jeff have a off-road buggy?

 

I know this thing could pull a fishing shelter out on the ice.

Nah, but I raced dirt karts, and then cars for 16 years.

Talonman, Can you tell me where you got the WORKS shocks from and the cost. I'm rebuilding a 05 Talon with a 232cc BB water cooled Taidia motor? Also what size tire and wheels are you running?

 

Thanks,

Chris

He is still driving the smallmouth race. Just hasn't got to the finish line yet.
