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!
Product Type: Build Manual (A PDF document that includes CAD drawings (or ‘plans’) and text that explains how to build something.)
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.
More than just a collection of CAD drawings, this comprehensive manual puts bike-powered buggy racing within easy reach of every petrolhead!
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.
Included Free- Rorty Race Seat Plans – Rorty Tube Bender #1 Manual!
