It is a 900. We didn't want to cut up the brand new XP plastics, so we used old 800 plastics instead.

Wow... that is a thing of beauty. TIG welded? The beads don't look like MIG to me.

I'm digging the lower control arms and links...

Nice rig! Any updates on how it turned out? What size and type of tube do you use for the frame?

Saw one one of your sxs (orange arms) at Dirt Riot race in Bridgeport a couple of weekends ago, looked really good.

It was the best looking one I saw there, must of had trouble early on in the back section somewhere, a shame I was hoping he would rip it up.

Great build, looks super strong and light? Everthing in place and a place for everthing.

How would you rate the three link rear for a buggy?
