Old School Peter Lynn Race Buggy?


Back in the day RevPaul had a PL Race Buggy with a suspension setup on the back wheels. Does anyone here have one still? I'd love to get some pics of the suspension setup. Thinking about playing with a welder and some tube and building up a landsailer but would love to try to smooth out the fields I'd be playing on with some smart suspension.

Local guy here had one back then. Said when the kite was powered up; it would cause the buggy to be torqued over. He ended up making links to replace the springs to lock out the suspension.

Front suspension using the rubber bushings like Popeye the welded made makes the most difference. I did the same to the back axle and the improvement wasn't nearly as noticeable. Another way to look into is the flex type back axle as used on the current model Sysmic buggy and the Seagull landsailers.

If anyone here knows of a source of that fiberglass plank material I'd like to know. I've looked for it and haven't found any.

I had one, and I can assure you the suspension was worthless. I locked it down.

it did have the advantage of a wide rear axle that folded up for air travel.

I own one and it is hanging in my garage. I can take pics and give any measurements that you might need.
