Photos Not Of John’s Off-Road Buggy
Because John’s buggy is still being built I thought it would be good to show you first some photos of what the buggy might look like when it’s ready for the road. (Off-road, of course).
So here are some photo’s of other people’s Barracuda mini off-road buggies.
Photos Of John’s Off-Road Buggy In Construction
Here are the photos of the Barracuda mini off-road buggy under construction in John’s workshop in Bangkok. John sent me these progress photos on 20th June after I sent out a few emails asking if anyone knew of a supplier of hydraulic flexible brake hoses and brake line components John will need for his buggy.
About The Barracuda Mini Off-Road Buggies
The Barracuda is one of the most advanced off-road racing vehicles in the world, and depending upon which engine you fit the performance can be anything from exhilarating to breakthtaking.
Often fitted with one of the most powerful production motorcycle engines available, the Suzuki Hayabusa engine, which kicks out 195 hp (horse power) for the 1,400 cc version, the Barracuda buggy can go from a standing start to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds (i.e. 0-60 in 4.5 sec) and reach a top speed of 120 mph.
Extreme Off Road Mini Buggy Racing In Thailand
I was wondering where John would be driving his off-road buggy in Thailand and what the nature of the sport was here.
A very quick Internet search turned up very little. A couple of “Extreme 4X4 Off Road Racing” videos on YouTube that didn’t work and a couple of go-kart racing tracks is all I could find, plus the Chiang Mai X-Centre which offers off road tours for buggies, ATVs and UTVs for tourists.
Updates And Comments To This Off-Road Buggy Page
I would like to thank John in Bangkok for sending the photos and giving his permission for me to put them on the website.
I found this off-road buggy build to be something very interesting. After all I’m building an off-road buggy myself!
John, if you could possibly send more photos as the build progresses, that would be fantastic and gratefully received.
And to all readers, please post your comments below.
