Hello everyone. I have been going through your forum as I am importing from the manufacturer in China th first one of these buggies into this country. It should arrive in the next couple of months and I will be assembling the buggy ready for some abuse on some of the worst roads I have ever seen. I was hoping everyone could give some pointers of things that need to be addressed on the buggy during assembly to make sure it lasts longer. I have noticed you recommend going over all the bolts on the entire buggy pretty much to make sure it is all tight. I look forward to hearing from everyone. Steve from Timor leste.
The roads in this country are so bad I have seen a water buffalo just chillin in a pothole on what should be a main highway and you could only tell he was in there cause his head was sticking up, otherwise he was level with what road there was. I will be needing the shocks to be cycling rather quickly as most of the roads are heavy corrugations from large trucks doing too higher speeds across them with no road maintenance. When the buggy gets here I will fit up the dual I'd cameras and record a trip and post up some highlights for everyone.
Dang, that's just hard to imagine. You might want to check out BOR for a set of his shocks if the roads are that bad. As far as popularity in the US. I would say it has risen some. They keep selling new ones so obviously more people are learning about them. I don't think they will ever be as popular as name brand side X sides. There is really no comparison in that field between the two. These are designed to be more versatile and that just doesn't appeal to everyone.
Hey the fool, I have been eyeing off your shock absorber and will have to get a quote for shipping from you via dhl one day as they are the only reliable shipping company here. I have ordered a white 2 door 4x4 with the 800cc engine, no stereo ( seemed to e ridiculous), no tow hitch (just build my own) but with winch, spare tyre and mount and there adjustable shocks(sounds like I will change them anyway). I love 3 cylinder engines. I used to drive a daihatsu charade turbo and think they are great fun. I have noticed no one has found any matching balljoints in the automotive sector. Is it because it is a odd thread?
