Lets talk single seater buggy's

Ok, I am in the planning/gathering stages to build a single seater, light weight, small axled buggy. I have a 4.0/t176/np241 and some dana 44's to use. Was planning on 37's, but thinking I may just slap 35's on it and keep the axles happy. 90* approach and departure so it will be ok on smaller tires I think. Just looking for some ideas/input on what to do/ not to do, or even more some pictures of any cool front engined single seaters you guys have seen out there.

A old wheel buddys rig that really worked well,
Sami half frame and front chip, setup as a 2 seater with a built sami motor and stock trans to lowed geared t-case.
3 link front and Y-3 link rear aero coils on each corner.To a set of D44's with crom's and 4;88 gears. And 42" Irocks.
Only thing i seen him break was 2 knuckles, intel he warp the ball joint socket. Casting was breaking, to thin.
3 to 4 guy could flip this rig over if to rolled over.

thanks, but the engine is in the wrong spot! LoL

Still good for ideas though, I have searched pirate quite a bit so far, and still looking around on there!

Cool, 42's are bigger than I want to go for sure, especially with a 4.0. I think I can do 35's with stock shafts for now, as well as the 241 gearing. Alter I can chromo the front and rear for $1100, slap an Atlas in and bump up to 38's maybe. I dont want to make it big, hard to turn, and heavy for sure, been there and done that already.
