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!
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.
