Welcome Kevin.

Without wishing to sound ghoulish or remind you of happier times but do you have a snap to post of your drag Beetle in flames or before it fired up ?

2332cc will be more than enough weigh and power for a buggy or most sandrails.

welcome, you could always do a lwb on the 64 pan and get the V5 changed to buggy.
