Hi all, nah I haven't been on here of late had a few things going on.

The buggys doing well, took it down the beach today for another run, first time on the beach with the new engine in it. It's still got a strange miss/hesitation around 2k changing form 1st / 2nd which is a real pita!!

I'll try to get some pics up soon!

Here's a few more pics of the buggy, the only real thing I've done to it others than drive it is put the Fox Shocks under her & put a new Magnaflow muffler out the back.

How's everyone else's buggy going, I've been seeing an orange Manxter getting around Redhead/Belmont of a weekend but other than that I haven't seen any others around.

& some more of a few months ago when I took the buggy back down so Rod Penrose could Dyno the motor in my buggy. Damn I can't believe how these engines go :shock:

Couple of other pics of the buggy, one pic someone took of the buggy & posted it up in Instagram.

Me too! Spill the beans, what'd ya get?? Looking great to mate, mine is going really well since I put the webers on it, it's like a different motor! Been driving it to and from work on the weekends, still can't bear to do a 50 minute trip in two hours in a car (terrible traffic) so it's all weather riding for me..
It will all be ok in the end.. if is not ok its not the end!

Hey guys, cheers for that yeah I'm stoked with it, she's coming along nicely & it's just so much fun to drive!!

When the engine was built & dynoed in Rods Dyno chassis it made around 130-140hp, big step up from the 2lt!! I'm not 100% sure what it did when we dynoed it in the buggy, we were just trying to sort out a hesitation it had under 2000rpm. I actually had Jason tone it down a bit as I didn't need it to be running to its max on the street.

Cheers Smiley, yeah mate a lot more bling than I wanted, bet when the guy he built it for didn't want the engine because he wanted 150rwhp, (& it missed out by 6) Rod built him another engine & I snapped this up!!
