The new siderails allow for a deeper more secure seat. I'm sure any of you that have the XR+ have felt like you might get yanked over those siderails once you get good and powed up. These definitely put you deeper in the pocket. Also the front gives your legs a little more room. You are not crammed in the buggy if you are a bigger guy. I imagine this set-up would do wonders for a PL BigFoot. Night and Day difference....!!!

Thanks Van !!!!! :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup::wee::wee::wee:

Very sweet! did you use the old PL seat or is that a custom VTT seat?
It looks like you have more back support in the picture!

Got my PL BigFoot+ with VTT rail and seat upgrade kit with spoked Sysmic rims out for her maiden voyage today. Fun session. I never realized how uncomfortable my stock BF seat was until I rode in style today. Holly mackerel, what an upgrade! More comfortable in every way, back support (who knew I needed it?) locked in feel side to side, easier ingress and egress, the whole shootin' match!

Thanks for a fine job Van; love my new ride! :thumbup:

Born-Kite RaceStar (5.0m, 7.0m, 9.0m, 11.0m)

Born-Kite NasaStar-3 (custom 3.2m)

I bought my VTT XR+ rail kit and rear axle from Van, and after the first time out on it I called him back to fab up a custom down tube and front fork for me as well. My entire buggy is a custom mid-size low rider from Van. I get so many compliments on my buggy all the time. I know part of that has to do with the sweet bright yellow powder coat I had done to it, but the design is really well thought out, and makes a head turner and a beach burner of a buggy. People seem to love to compliment it, but they rarely want to actually ride in it even when I offer to let them take it for a few laps.
