Don’t confuse this buggy construction manual with the backyard type buggy plans advertised in the motoring press and elsewhere on the net. This is not a jumped-up, off-road go-kart, or weekend recreational toy, but a full-on, single-seater racing machine with every aspect of performance, durability, and safety taken into consideration. The R6 utilizes proper engineering grade materials – not just bits of black pipe and old quad and car parts!
