He will be ok as long as the springs are stiff enough. But you are right Marcus if its present its going to be hard to fight with the shocks mounted there.

torque twist is really bad . this is my first shafty and man is it hard to get the twist out . as in the pics the shock are mounted to the links . my problem is the links roll causing the twist . try different springs / shock oil / even shocks . back to the drawingboard

as i have stated move the shocks to the axles and mopve the top of the shock to the front hole on the mount they will be laid back a little more giving more artic but also should fix most of the torque twisting problems

yet another pic of the little guy . this time posing on top of my Super trucks . maybe you can see in the pic i moved the rear shocks to the axles and droped the front of the shock down. this really helped with twist . i also changed springs again . moved 2 of the batteries to the rear axle . anyway on to the pic

Nice rig! DO you know if that is solid rod or tube? I am guessing solid as I don't see a ton of bracing. The aluminum plates could be hiding it, but I can only see the last few pics (I cannot see the ones on MSN). I hope to put one together this winter (when its not 100 outside) and am slowly putting togther my tools.

Trikster it is made from solid rod . the builder is John Boyer , he does really great work . I have always wanted a Boyer Buggy . here is a few more pics of it getting "NUCKING FUTS" .
