Windspeed pro?


Not sure if this is the proper place to put this. But does anyone have any experience with the windspeed pro IVANPAH full race buggies. Been eyeballing them on the internet but would like some input. Thanks.

Very heavy built buggy for sure. Sold a couple several years ago and still see one of them at WBB each event and it seems to be holding up pretty good. Angus has had one for quite some time, although he has made some mods to it. Doesn't come apart easily so once you put the axle on, it's pretty much together from that point forward so would need to be hauled in a truck, trailer or have a buggy rack built for the back of your vehicle to haul it around assembled. It was purpose built for Ivanpah dry lake bed.

I owned one.

Well built but very heavy. Over 100lbs kitted out. While built for the desert it will take large tires. The thread count is not compatible with most other buggies. So BYOBB, bring your own bolts and bearings!

Jeff installed a spreader bolt on the axle flange to make removing the extra long, extra heavy back axle easier. Still it was murder on the paint sliding it in and out. This buggy is best kept together once built.

They are a good deal if and when they come up on the used market.
