Nice, but lots of strain on that hollow axle. Likely ok though.

I think he might of been both inspired by the 4 Cross
For wheeled down hill chair, them put off by the 9k
Price tag abs further put out by the 6 month delivery time so
Went it alone and built one himself, be good to get him on ES.

I like this design but it looks a lil fragile for serious offroad
Work...ES member Danny Mayes has designed a very good
4 Cross replica for me, that we hope to build in the future.

It's kinda cool though. I want to know where he got his alloy linkages and blocks. Looks like maybe pre-made go cart stuff?

THat is seriously rock and roll. Hats off to Danny's work.

I love the way the V-twin aspect of the motor actually serves a functional purpose, I had expected it was purely aesthetic.

If you get around to building that thing it will be something else.

If you mean the suspension wishbones and uprights etc, it certainly wont be from a go kart...they dont have suspension or anything like that set up.
