The R21 Solo equipped with the right powerplant can achieve 500 BHP per tonne and can accelerate to 100 kph (60 MPH) in well under 4 seconds, with speeds approaching 200 kph (125 MPH)!
The main structure of the Solo is constructed from 1.25″ DOM tube providing an ultralight and strong chassis. Double A-arm front and rear suspension with air shocks all-round will smooth the roughest trails and soak up the biggest landings.
The manual and plans have been carefully produced to enable competent DIYers to construct a full-bore ultralite buggy for themselves by following highly detailed and easy to read drawings in conjunction with the construction kits available from Rorty.
The minimum requirement for chassis and suspension construction is the manual and plans along with the R21 Solo Laser Cut Plate Kit.
The Manual and Plans come as a downloadeable PDF package for you to print to any size you choose. By default the manual is US letter and the plans are US tabloid.
Print to your favourite paper size by choosing fit to page in your print options.
The Rorty laser cut plate kits take advantage of the latest in manufacturing techniques and provide you with all the plate components you require to complete your buggy chassis, suspension arms and uprights and will save you a ton time and effort.
Items such as the front uprights, shrouds, hangers and mounts are designed to be self jigging, requiring only a rubber mallet (and possibly a file for de-burring) to assemble state of the art, highly accurate, lightweight components ready for welding.
Plates are precision laser cut and engraved with part numbers for ease of identification. In addition to the parts required to build your buggy also included are the precision cut tabs required to construct the A-arm jigs detailed in the build manual.

The Rorty machined components kit provides you with all the buggy specific machined components you require to complete your buggy chassis, suspension arms, and uprights plus other specialised parts like bearings, u-joints and selected hardware to save you searching.
In addition to the parts required to be fitted to your buggy, included are the machined bushes and spacers for you to construct the suspension arm jigs detailed in the build manual.
Your build manual details how all this fits together and what additional readily available off-the-shelf hardware or other parts might be required.
Due to the various options available, front hubs bearings and brake components are not part of this kit but are available separately.
