Maybe this is phenq already linked here.
You guys seen this?
$14000  110 HP and 4wd with lotsa travel for a unit like it. 16 front 18 rear I think it has.

This one looks better than Yamaha. And the price is also reasonable.

If I were to build another busa powered buggy,it would be front engined. I think it would sit the driver/passenger  just a few inches further back in the car but open up a LOT of space behind the driver/passenger for all kinds of things without upsetting the F/R weight bias.

Sooo guessing the cooling system is in the rear??

it will be interesting to see the condition of the gears for sure and i bet they are worn. the stock busa trans isn't truly up to the task but the fact they lasted this long and on a stock clutch basket really is impressive. building the inside for a bit more power will make a noticable diff.



big dave def post pics up of your trans too.

I've had no issues at all with 3-6. I'm going to wait till I tear it down and inspect before making the call. It's always shifted like greased lightning.Never a glitch but I do a LOT of no clutch shifting.
