After having the buggy for about 2 years, cussing it, sticking it out in the pasture and doing some other things to it I can't mention here. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad ......I drove it down the road yesterday, Very Happy Very Happy I even got it up to 3rd gear..( did not want to push it to far with no brakes) Shocked Shocked In the past week I have pulled the motor 3 times to change pressure plates and throw out bearings. Sad ..I just replaced the transaxle with all matching parts and that took care of the clutch problems. Laughing Laughing .....Off to bolt the body down and take it for another test drive. Cool Cool Cool Cool ....
