What buggy? I don't know what your talkin bout. Those tires are for floatation. I'm building a raft to fish out of in the bay. I love fishing! :)

Ben,
Not Trent fab. Some guy in AZ. This was going to be his fifth rig.

Robert, Grimm,
It's a 5.3 vortec. I'm over craters.. That was soooo last year! It's gonna sit as is for a few months before I can start on it. Collecting parts though.

Yeah, I was gonna post "pssh, needs work, I'm going wheeling" and that's all :D

You guys and your buggies. I remember when all I had to worry about was "inchitis" to feel inadquately built on the trail (insert penis joke here). Now I gotta worry about "tube-itis"

So ya think all tube work will help the landings on means?

Hard to say, no magic number. But, I would guess that most rock buggies have a wheelbase of 103-108". Just my own guess, based on western rock terrain and comp buggies. Some of the eastern and southern rigs are longer.

That's ridiculous. 101 always worked for me :D. But I suppose if I was running 38's-42's I'd be more inclined to be in the 105, 106 at most 108.

90% of the F-Toys run 37s and they are [gulp] amazingly capable vehicles.

That is what people who don't have buggies say. :cheers:

F-Toys are supposed to be the 'budget' buggy amongst the buggy world with significant limitations in equipment to keep them priced low and affordable. Compared to the high dollar buggies, F-Toys are amazingly competitive in regards to capability in the rocks (just low powered).

I'm sitting at 110" and so far i couldnt be happier with it. Over the last few months i have wheeled with quite a few shorter buggys and there has definately been more than one occasion where the slightly longer WB has helped me.
I know there will be situations or certain obsticles where something shorter (and narrower) will work better, but for me at 110", 84" track width and 22" belly clearance on 42's, its feeling good so far.

That is also why, when my build is done, I'm heading for the narrowest rock formations I can, with Matty in tow.

Cracker should go buy an Ftoy. The Ftoy capability fits right in with his driving skills. :looser:

You can try following us around in Ridgecrest in an Ftoy on 37's......... :D

I'll stick with my 106" WB, 80" width with 22" belly clearance on 40's rock buggy. It seems to do alright.
