nice wheels, will they fit on your buggy? Cause I bet those little front casters are going to wobble like mad at speed.

i know i will never be able to keep up with you in the buggy so i had to come up with somthing where I may have a little advantage .got a ton of wheelchair skills now so i thought use them. now Im looking forsome weights to hang low from the axle for a bit of lower balist. Im sure we can beat my old record that we set last time.:lol: hey coolbreeze dont you think these wheels will look amazing on your apexx ,you should pickup a set they are only 1800 bucks:cool2:

well boys we had it out today on the beach and on grass at Gary Point and holy sh#t you can ride it just like a buggy and steer with the front wheel .Scud has video of it and maybe he will post some up. anyway looks like it is going to work just need some fine tuning and then practice the hell out of it, maybe even have a few crashes to remember the old times coming home with roadrash from knee to ankle .as far as wear i hope they will stand up ok but they are sandrail dune buggy tires and I should be able to find some in vegas it is in the middle of the dessert.

Hey dirtslide over here we have a buggy pal from up in the tropics who has
a major case of MS.
If your chair mods are documented is there a chance of a copy so that i can pass them on to Rob.
He usually gets around in his motorised chair towing his buggy.

Mods may save him lotsa grief.
