That's awesome-- modifying full-size vehicles can be a pretty big project. I've helped friends with builds, but never taken one on myself.

I plan on eventually getting into modifying full-size vehicles (once I have the money) for off-road use. This is a much smaller vehicle -- just a single-seater low-power off-road fun machine. I'm hoping that I can apply the lessons learned from projects like this to bigger projects.

You should post your builds here. I'm looking to learn as much as I can about how to modify full-size vehicles before I dive in.

Just a tiny 10-hp engine (basically a lawn-mower engine-- we are limited to using it due to the class of vehicle we're building). Despite the lack of power, we're still hitting a top speed in the mid-30mph range, which is enough to have some fun on jumps and in the twistys.

With any luck, after racing season is over, we'll find something a little more powerful to put in there that we can get our hands on without spending any money.
