Did you stretch fish net stockings over it and then paint them to get that effect?

LOL, no stockings for this effect..  Thats more for scales (fish / reptile).

I'll make a thread with the technique, and links to the vids and supplies..  I did deviate from the instructions a bit, and liked the results more... (I deviated because I didn't have the paint they suggested, and I also applied a technique from a real fire instructional video)..

Wouldn't happen to be a Mickey Harris vid would it? That guy does some amazing true-flame work. A complete goofball to meet in person though  ;)

I pm'd you !!

I've been into quad based buggys for a couple years, and have not found a better donor engine than the 660 raptor if you want to go the 5 speed route.
For a CVT setup, Polaris has a nice compact transmission that they made for many years and accepts their standard secondary clutch.
This year we will have a couple different buggy configurations running the trails.
The first one is an Odyssey based buggy with a Polaris XC 600 Liberty snowmobile engine. I'm not a fan of 2 strokes, but I think this will be a rocket !! Although we're using the stock Odyssey tranny for reverse, these engines have electronic reverse which might be the way to go.
The second buggy is also Odyssey based, but is using a KLR 650 bike engine. I don't know how well this will work, because the output from the engine has to be overdriven to go to the input shaft of the stock Odyssey transmission.
The Odyssey's stock tranny is a 10:1 unit designed for a high reving 2 stroke, and is a pain in the ass trying to adapt a 4 stroke to it.
The Polaris tranny I mentioned above a 3:1 unit, and much better suited for our application.

BTW, what is that air cylinder located at the end of your clutch cable, and how does it work?

Masterfabr,

I actually have it half written up..  I do a thorough writeup, not some quick little tidbit that leaves you wondering (including pics, links to vids, the exact paint and masks, etc..)..  I just need to find some time for a few more pics to use as examples.

Hemi43,

I just love how military the one buggy looks..  You would think you stole it off an army base.  Definitely cool looking!!  As for the "air cylinder", its actually a hydraulic clutch..  I know they make a Magura for the raptor motor, the but Magura needs "Magura blood" (basically a mineral oil).  And I wanted a pedal operated clutch.. Which takes brake fluid.  They are incompatible (brake fluid will eat the seals on the magura, and "magura blood" is too thick for a hydraulic pedal).  The CNC Clutch is made for VW's and I just had to modify some mounts to make it work for me..  Actually works pretty well when its properly bled, but I started with a generic "DIY" brake / clutch line kit (the clear vinyl hose) and that leaks like a siv..  I have some braided stainless lines being made that will solve that issue.

Up north..  A town called West Milford, though I have access to decent trails in Hopatcong and Ringwood as well :)

Where are you from??
