A step-by-step illustrated guide to building a single-seater off-road buggy using standard tools, basic skills and low-cost materials. It demonstrates how to make the chassis, and advises how to modify and use cheap but serviceable mechanical components. There is information on how to source the power unit, transmission, suspension, steering, brakes and other parts, along with how to fit safety equipment such as padding, seat belts and engine cut-off. Written by the author of "Build Your Own Sports Car for as Little as u250", it follows a similar format and includes scaled working drawings, detailed descriptions and colour photographs.
