Beach Buggy Body and Chassis Help / Re: Clutch pedal noise

Could be the cable conduit starting to break away inside the tunnel.
Get someone to watch the action on the clutch arm at the gearbox while you press the pedal, if there is a jerk this could be the conduit pulling down from the front weld or the rear as the tube exits the tunnel.

I drilled the spot welds that secure the nipples removed them then bolted Mini bump stops on.

As I said. IF Swanage Carnival does get cancelled is there any interest in still doing a meet at the Football club. Event organisers are having to make the call due to overheads and planning. We don't have this problem as until it happens the overheads are ZERO. Realistically we still have 3 months until the last weekend in July. We donít know what's going to happen by then but IF we are allowed to and a big IF it is safe and prudent to do so it may be the break we need.

Believe me mate I've seen them seam sealed on.
Didn't mean it as a slight. The spots are just so neat.

Looks great, 1 question though your pans look like they are riveted on?

As David said it's not worth the time, effort and cash to repair that. I'd search for a new/2nd hand on FB/Ebay etc.

Beach Buggy Body and Chassis Help / Re: Predator or Sidewinder

The Sidewinder I built for Dai has the same dash but is more tucked under in the nose at the number plate than a Predator.

One of the things that gets me is a mismatch of switches and gauges on an otherwise quality build.



They are a blank canvas

All I can say at this point is who knows?
If the carnival does get cancelled like the rest of most worldwide events scheduled BUT restrictions are lifted and it is prudent to do so would you still like a chance to meet up and chat about what life is like post COVID?
I can't say it will happen but if we don't try we fail.

List:
Flags & Karen
Dai & Donna

Mine was the first out of that mould and I know for a fact that the plug was a good one.
What colour and what flake are you going for?

If you ask a Sidewnder owner they will say Sidewinder but on the other hand a Predator owner will tell you the truth😂
Who told you the Predator had defects?
Have a look at how finicky Ludicruz has been on his build and I mean that as a compliment, there is no way he would have accepted a wonky shell to start with.
I can say that the moulds for the Predator are the newest out there and to me it is the closest to a traditional Manx but with some user friendly updates like wider wings and more space at the rear for engine access both of which were kept on the Sidewinder.
If you are going to fit side pods apart from the rear wings there is not a lot to shout about.
I've built a Predator for me and a Sidewinder for a buddy and they both needed the same fettling to get them right.
