Looks fantastic!  You going to make it to the fall gathering?

Very nice work.  I would love to bypass shocks to my car for the rear.  Was it a noticeable change in the ride?

Bypasses ARE amazing. My buddy took a rally ride around the countryside the other day with me. When we got back after a rather "spirited " drive he described the ride as graceful . I had never thought of 90+mph on a rough dirt road like that but ,yes,it is graceful. The bypasses are what makes it so. Buggy's new name is now Gracie.  :m :m

The car absolutely RIPS!!

The sand was really whooped out this past weekend but I was able to scoot around with Dune Buggy Dougy on Friday and Sunday.  Here are some pretty cool pics.
The car runs nice and cool too!  No mechanical issues to speak of.  HOWEVER I did bend my lower front arms.  I DID have this in the back of my mind.  I wheelied off a drop off, the bottom had a big dip and a couple whoops after it.  My rear tires hit the dip and slammed my front end down into the face of the whoop.  BOOOO. Well, I will be bending it back and adding some structure under the arm.  There was another guy in a 4 seat car that hit this same area and really rung his bell pretty good.  He also bent his arms as well.
