Add to EJ Playlist The rig is now 6x6 but can be 8x8 if needed.
The problem is that this car is less then 3 tons, combined with 8 big wheels and 550 BHP engine, it has very little grip (when off-roading) on rocks.
I posted 2 new flicks after braking the master drive shaft and the third axle drive shaft. you can see that on 4x4 and 2x4 not enough power is being deliver to the ground. hopefully when going to 6x6 each wheel will have more weight on it, giving it more grip.

BAD MUSIC ALERT!
Promo vid for the Bucher Duro ATV, a Swiss built 4x4 and 6x6 multipurpose vehicle. Thunderbirds Are Go!
Bought by Mowag in 2003 the vehicle shown is now the Mowag Duro II 4x4
The brief for the Duro was that it had to be good on and off road to get around the villages and mountains of central Europe. It had to needs no special skills to drive, so that teenagers doing their National Service could use on mountain / forest / swamp / Autobahn with minimal training.
It had to be light enough to be air portable, and small enough to fit on a Swiss narrow gauge railway bed.
There is also now an armoured 6x6 version: check out the products section at
Also worth a look at are the Piranha (swims) and the Eagle (kinda more like a Humvee)..
Add to EJ Playlist "Mogscrapper" Dave emerges from the 4 foot deep water section (the right way) at the UK's first Unimog gathering. He later tried to do it the wrong way and got his winch stuck in the mud, but that's another story...
Add to EJ Playlist This is a short video of a 1998 yamaha G19 electric golf cart with a 2.5 inch lowering kit from ManBoobsRacing. com. We reached 50.5 miles per hour down this hill. The suspension from ManBoobs racing handles perfectly and can take some serious G's. To get a kit for your cart go to www.manboobsrac ing.com. The kit on this cart is the newest, with adjustable caster and camber. It is sweet!!!
Add to EJ Playlist APU (Auxilary Power Unit) turboshaft engine powering a highly modified golf cart through a hydrostatic transmission. Aprox 50 hp through the trans to the wheels. 5 hp engine is used for starting rather than 2 large truck batteries. The hydrostatic transmission allows for instant forward and reverse changes,without any shifting, and nearly unlimited torque. Top speed was gearing limited to about 35 MPH at the golf course because the ground is so rough. This was a test run and will be followed soon by some high speed runs on flat pavement. Turbine engine was bought off of Ebay for $500 and used cart chassis was $100.
Add to EJ Playlist This was the last single cylender motor i fuel injected, I went all out and had my EFI computer running great with the LCD screen readout. I also installed the ford EDIS igntion module with a single coil over plug ignitor ontop the stock spark plug. I got this motor to rev up 8,000+ rpm no problem , i used my old school weed tiller as my dyno :) sucker cut the 3 quaterinch thick sticks of wood no problem :)
Add to EJ Playlist This tired, old two stroke didn't run that well so my friend and I decided we would try something more powerful...
Yes, I know the sound is messed up for some reason. It was fine when I uploaded it and was fine for 110,000 views. the problem is on youtubes end, not mine.
Add to EJ Playlist Hears the flip side of my turbo briggs motor, I figured why not super charge it and see what it would do, as you can see it didnt do much, I over did the ratio between the pump and motor.. still ran barely...
Add to EJ Playlist WOW, big title, this is something you will never see anywhere on the web!! some have tryed and some have failed, but this is the real deal! back few years ago when learning about EFI and turbos, I was brave enough to dump few hundered dollers and say screw it! turbo a gokart motor :) im sure you have seen fancy stuff before but this is the real thing, i built a fuel injection computer from grond up (not crappy megasquirt hear) and got a old volvo turbo, planted it on the motor and whala! what you see is what you get....
Add to EJ Playlist Here is the final video clip. This is the last time the car ran in 2006. Pretty much destoyed the front engine. Back two cylinders, gone. Rods, pistons, valves, heads, crank, can we say toast. RC is behind the car on the launch
