Buggy "Hank"

We just got done with the build of this buggy. Its mostly finished, minus a few things.

Specs:

Toyota 4 cylinder with turbo.
Diamond Axle Front
V6 Rear Axle
Dual Cases
3 link front
4 link rear
Radflo air shocks
And enough levers to make a bulldozer jealous.

I feel like a total noob for asking this...you're not running any sort of springs because of the air shocks, right?

yea I should be out at post.... just need to paint it and run the coolant lines to the rear. the turbo is a garrett T3 with a carbon seal it is a draw though system: gotpropane kit throught the throttle plates, to the turbo and into the intake. propane is a higher octane so you dont have to worry about it going boom through the turbo...... as far as pics they probably wont help you any as the engine compartment is so tight and "busy" but it is pretty simple, just dont run more than about 8lbs of boost without major engine mods!

hmmm yeah im still on the fence i got a month or so before i build the motor. gotpropane suggested just building a motor for hp and a high compression for the propane instead of the turbo to not worry about it.
let me know how it does
whens the shakedown run?

Congrats on the new rig!! Your truck was already super capable but this thing looks off the chain. Does this mean you have some square d-shafts 4-sale? SWEET! SWEET! SWEET!
