i'd also like to see pics of the rear drive installed or something different then the first prototype pics you posted. i was hoping you would have had one of the rhinos at that corr race in lancaster we saw you at.

found this the other day which looked quite interesting.



anyone seen these before? nice and compact, pushed by a turbo busa motor. made by transworks

yeah its just a bus box locked into whatever gear to give it the desired reduction. shifter housing is eliminated. mine is set up the same way, but i used a car rear end and geared it to 5.76

HIDden,

what motor are you running?? i was thinking the same thing awhile back with a BMW motor since they are shaft driven, however i believe the motor sits normal not sideways (seems like the exhaust would get uncomfrtable for a passenger if the motor is sideways... no?.

cbr1000rr, inline four. the exhaust is actually next to me. its a chain drive normally, but i have an adapter to convert to a toyota driveshaft flange, yota 8.8 irs 3rd member is about 9 inches wide. much narrower than that bus contraption. and we all know longer axles equal more travel . if you wrap the headers and build a firewall with that insulated under hood dynomat stuff i figure u wont catch on fire.

oh yeah my bottom rail width is 66 inches. so uhh... the header isnt all that close to me. its actually 3 seater. side by side by side. baby seat in the middle for my boy.

sorry guys its been a crazy week...

no rhino motors or diff's to speak of. you might try metal tech here in phoenix, they had a couple bare stock chassis so theres bound to be some stock parts floatin around.

ill try and find some pics of this beast, all i could find was a couple of the raw chassis nothing with the drivetrain in it. maybe ill take some this weekend.

I have seen these in person at Eric's shop, it is a modified type 1 vw trans and you can use reverse on some of them. I do not believe you could get away with 4x4 though, unless you made it a one seater and move the fuel tank.

Stay away from the transworks stuff! It looks way cool but it doesn't work for sh!t. There are a couple of guys at minibuggy.net that bought 'em, sent 'em back (broken) got fixed and broke again. I'm looking into using a honda civic trans in mine...30 foward and 6 reverse speeds!
