Red face 2 seater buggy question

I'm new here ,and had a question .
I want to build a 2 seater buggy. Using a set of samurai rearends.
I've been looking on the net ,found badland buggies looked through there plans.
Didn't find anything for me.Been searching the net too can't find much else for plans for 2 seaters. Anyone know where i could find some plans for a 2 seater buggy other then badland?
I'm looking for something like the megadolon plans but in a 2 seater.
Any help would be appeciated.

Not tring to knock badland buggies.
I really like there megalodon buggy, if it was a 2 seater it would be perfect.
Was thinking to buy the plans and modify them to a 2 seater.
Affaid i' d screw it up though this is going to be my first buggy build.

Long as you keep the wheel base the same and width the same and dont change the suspension design, the rest is just steel. Easy enough to widen the cabin.

Protodie, rorty, panther plans are a few

The Rortys are roomy compared to the ST4, and really well drawn

Ok, never thought about having to lenghin it?
Had look at the base design, figured if a guy just made it twice as wide.
That'd work.

Mate I'm a Short ass and find my ST4 cramped, the Rorty's have alot more room inside, and I often wish I went that way. I have to build a second ST4 for a mate whos 6 foot, He cant even get into the cock pit of my ST4, and its empty, no seats, steering wheel, Nada. It needs about an extra Foot in length and 1/2 foot Width for me to be comfortable for hours in the seat. For Him were Raising the Roof a Foot, going a Foot Wider, and 1 and 1/2 foot longer in the cab

everyone answering hims from mini buggy. ahahahahaha. Rorty is the way I would go.

Protdie is sweet but he only sales frame plans and then the parts to build it. Which makes it very easy to build one if you can afford to buy verse make. His plans + parts was actualy a great deal though.

I'm a woods guy so I like the 65in wide r6 from Rorty

If you plan to make it a 4x4 with a set of samurai rear ends you will have to change so much you will literally be starting from scratch.

Using plans layed out for IRS then converting it to two striaght axles is a bit of apples to oranges kinda. Its still fruit but different fruit.

If going for Sammy rear ends you ought to look at rock crawlers or KOH (king of the hammers) types and scale them to your size.

Yea I would have to agree with that. Two solid axles aint even gonna come close to working on any rail plans. I mean you could build a cabin but thats about it and even that may need tubes here or there bent up or down to clear the links. A good set of plans your basicly buying suspension design and plate work files. If you cant use those key aspects, your just throwing money in a hole

This probably wont help other than the pics,but this guy built what sounds like what you want.He did not go into very much detail and I cant remember where the thread is but I thought it was cool so kept the pics.This is about as simple as you can get IMO.He said it worked very well also.Maybe someone will recognize and know where the thread is,its on MBN.

I think I saw that, or something like it on the Silver lake sand dunes forum. Maybe built by Sand Fab in MI.
