The R82s (Rorty 8 series, 2–seater) utilises automotive engineering grade materials – not just bits of black pipe and old quad and car parts!
The R82s is a design for those looking for all the thrills of a single-seater bike powered race buggy, but with the addition of a passenger/navigator’s seat, and yes it can be built right or left hand drive!
The suspension offers huge amounts of travel and the stable chassis design incorporates a longer wheel base and wider track than in previous models. This is the ideal pre-runner or play buggy for high speed trail chasing or dune running.
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 downloadable PDF package for you to print to any size you choose. By default the manual is US letter and the plans are US tabloid.
