wow. these stats don't seem right but if they are, they need motor fwd, trailing arms back, like both of my w/c's. With a boat anchor hanging off the back , does not that hurt steering grip? Oh yes! I used to wear my cut brake out fighting to go up a hill. Now it's just point and go. The same goes for too wide in the rear with w/c. Y'all think about it... The buggy already don't want to GO with the extra 200 lbs., now the wheels stuck way out want to take turns pushing. Nobody has wasted more time and money, and relationship and job interference than I have, modifying w/c's to make them do right. Y'all w/c boys know as well as I do, just b4 you reach that vertical tip of a cliff you have to let off the gas and depend on your momentum. That's when you really wish the core weight of your motor was down low like an a/c. When that boat anchor weight hits the cliff at 25 mph it HAS to be leveraging the front end up. And more gas makes you flip over backwards, So your hp has to go from 200 to 0, JUST WHEN YOU REALLY NEED IT THE MOST! Yall seen the Passat vid last week on pg. 5 of RIDING SATURDAY. It's just point and go. No worry of un commanded wheelies, or steering, AND uses every obstacle for traction. It actually gets better traction the steeper.


Hey passat put that thing on some scales I'm curious what the weight and bias is..........

Lots and lots? :D


You don't have to get off the power if you set your arm geometry right though, no matter how much weight is hung out back...
