Talked to Jimmy last night, he says the big block is coming out this week. He hates it, that is his exact words. Says he's building a 400 for it asap.
Looks awesome though! My fav. rear engine buggy for sure.

He told me it seems sluggish compared to his other engines. We discussed gearing, trans bindage, and weight. He still believes the engine is just not what he wants. :dunno:

I was thinking the same thing when he said he was going to swap the motor. It does not look like the rear is removable from the pics. What a pain..

I don't know? Looks like you have to take the rear axle and 4 link out. My trans had to come out the pass window if I don't take the engine out.

Yah, I agree, that motor sucks. drool drool drool drool I think it's the fetzer valve or ball bearings. Better add some 30w. molaugh

I really really like this buggy. Put an LS series motor and some suspension seats and maybe some stickie tires and it would be one mean SOB. If I ever have another buggy built I would want something like this.
