New Fox shocks, front has 14x2.0, rear is 16x2.0

Not a buyer but I am curious on the drivetrain in this buggy.  The Honda Trans axle would normally turn backwards correct?  SO the Nissan T-case corrects the rotation or are the axles flipped?  Also is the T-case added reduction or overdrive?

Pretty sure I know the answers to these questions I just wanted to be sure.  Very unique and cool buggy IMO.

I thought about the same questions you did for a while but if you forget about engine rotation, the transmission is going to move you forward in drive and reverse in reverse.  In this application the best route was front engine, the transmission spins the shafts the right way for your normal every day transfer case.  I could have used a divorced 205 but the nissan was quite a bit lighter. The goal for this rig was light weight and more power than the 4 cyl versions you see.  
There are adapters to use these motors with a gm transmission for around 800 bucks.  I might go that route on the next one.  In that case the engine rotation matters but the honda v6 is standard rotation.  Most of the 4 cyl motors are reversed.
Marked motorsports uses honda v6 motors on some of their rigs with gm th350 or 400s.  
Only reason you see axles flipped is on rear engine setups where the rotation is reversed.

T case is 1:1 high and almost 2:1 low.  The honda v6 transaxle gears are 4.21:1
The low side of the transfer case is really low in this rig!

Did you secure one output of the transaxle or did you weld the diff up?

It's welded.  If you stop one of the outputs it doubles the rotation on the other side.

Any pictures of how the drivetrain is set up?  Also what is the top speed?  Since its a trans axle I'm ASSuming that it has a lower top speed like most trans axle buggies.

Let me dig a little for a pic. It's not crazy special. It's all mounted in poly bushings. 
It's geared low. It's basically like a regular rig if you had a 4:1 t-case and 4.88 axle gearing.  That pretty low then in this setup you add in the transfer case that acts as a doubler with the 2:1 low range. 
I've just kept it in high so far.  Low is really low.
Top speed would be around 30 probably....guessing

The front output just free spins. It has to be there to keep the fluid in.
The 1310 Splined yokes haft was a pricey one, it has a regular ol 1310 slip yoke on it then to the t-case flange
I kept all the part numbers of stuff I used to make it work
