We run those and the Fedima's (the feds are better imo) on ours, and given it's race use only they get used hard and hot to the point they're steaming when you come back in - but they're still sketchy on wet concrete/gravel sections even when hot.
 Even switching to forest rally tyres or A/T's gives far more braking power/stability on the hard stuff.
One of them mucky ones. Sorry.

Well that looks pretty awesome. Eager to see some updates :-)
It all began in September 2008...

Slow progress...

just added a little bit more green to the bug,the side panels.
We put the buggies together to see the height difference which in the picture doesn't really show but in real life it alot higher

Both looking great - green one looks way higher to me, more off an off road stance.

Exciting to have another buggy entering the existing population.

Hi gasaxe, is the green buggy sitting high purely down to wheel/tyre combo or gave you modded suspension too?

Ta,
Andy
