Buggy how to do it yourself? Buggy with your own hands - blueprints

"Light trucks", that is, worn out and converted cars, freed from almost all parts of the body, have long been popular in many countries. The first homemade cars for racing off-road and sand dunes appeared in the 50s of the 20th century in America.

The difference between buggy and other machines

The common for all cars is the presence of 4 wheels, frame, body, engine, gas tank, brakes, driver's seat and steering. There may be, of course, other common parts. And how does the homemade buggy differ from its automobile counterparts?

  • With his hands, it is traditionally done without a body with a trim, doors, hood and trunk. The case of this homemade work is a frame made of pipes welded to the supporting frame.
  • Instead of a windshield driver protects the metal mesh with small cells, fixed to the front arc by band ties.
  • Mini-buggies make their own in the form of a compact light car. Its weight is usually about 300 kg.
  • Most often, parts and assemblies from different brands of cars are used for assembly: the engine is from VAZ, the shock absorber is from Zaporozhets, the brake system parts are from GAZ, VAZ or Moskvich. From the cross-country motorcycle "ChZ" you can use the exhaust pipe, air filter and carburetor.
  • Between the engine and the driver's seat a fire-resistant partition is installed.
  • The frame for buggies with their own hands (from VAZ) is welded from strong steel pipes.
  • The steering wheel can be used from the racing card.

As you can see from the given incomplete list, the buggy is a special model, assembled as a designer, on a self-made fortified frame made of adapted units of different automobile models. Many details for this machine craftsmen make independently.

What you can not install on homemade cars

Any car must meet the safety requirements and certain standards adopted in the state. Under the existing requirements of KyTT, it is forbidden to use buggy to assemble:

  • Tires from tractors and agricultural machinery;
  • Protectors with mechanical damages and a restored pattern;
  • All anti-skid: chains, spikes or bracelets on tires.

What you need to have on buggies for security

You can, of course, sit on the "Jeep" and drive on the steppes and ravines. There are also such competitions for owners of crossovers. You can, without bothering to go quietly on an old worn out "Zhiguli", expecting every minute that just about any detail "will fly." Adrenaline and extreme these actions will be provided completely!

Those who love extreme driving on a makeshift machine in a no-phosphate zone, who are keen on the idea of making an unusual car on their own, are fans of buggy. How to make this machine with your own hands? What will be superfluous, and what needs to be "on board"?

  1. It is necessary to have seat belts with four fasteners at different points.
  2. A 3-kilogram fire extinguisher is installed on the right side of the driver's seat. One of the nozzles is directed towards the driver, the other - to the engine. Start the fire protection system from two levers. One of them is installed outside on the main safety arc, the other is accessible to the driver.
  3. The engine and fuel tank installed in the rear of the frame must be separated from the driver's seat by a partition made of fire-resistant material.
  4. The trunk on the sports buggy is a completely superfluous detail.
  5. The driver of a racing event must wear a helmet.
  6. Requirements KiTT recommend to install on a self-made buggy with their own hands, parking lights and stop lights, sound signal (turn on the button).
  7. The driver's seat should be equipped with a head restraint.
  8. From the rear and front side of the frame, eyelets with a diameter of about 4 cm should be welded to ensure towing.
  9. The steering wheel and the dashboard must be installed at a convenient distance to control the buggy.

Just go or race?

There are two varieties and opportunities to make buggies with your own hands: drawings of sports and tourist cars. Characteristics of sports mini-crossover is not very different from the driving qualities of tourist homemade products. Crossover put on a tubular reinforced frame. Auto for cross-country travel should also have stability, maneuverability and easy handling. A tourist car is made with a passenger seat, for racing there is a single buggy. Not designed for racing, the car is "dressed" in the body.

In which competitions are participating in racing games

  • Sports championships and championships of Russia on races on cars like "Buggy" give the opportunity to participate in competitions for teenagers and adults.
  • By car, designed for racing in difficult natural landscapes, you can successfully participate in various competitions on the ascent and descent from the hills, winter and summer slalom, figure management.

What to choose: buy a ready car or build your own hands

Some auto plants have long established the production of sports with a simplified body model and tourist or pleasure buggy. How to make this car with your own hands? It is possible, but it is easier and faster to buy a finished vehicle. However, many racers make the car for themselves, given their specific requirements for the model. For a race car, a sturdy frame is not just a base for installing a common design. The frame of the buggy is a reliable frame for protecting the driver in times of tipping and collision.

Main characteristics of the buggy

Races for buggies have long been turned into motor sports, which is called "autocross." Machines that are easy to operate, light weight, resistant to overturning, have powerful motors, increased maneuverability and the ability to speed dial quickly. The values of the characteristics and abilities listed below will be useful to you if you are going to make buggies with your own hands. How to make the best car for yourself? Simply pick up the details and you will get the car with the parameters:

  • Engine capacity of 33 liters. from.;
  • The maximum developed speed is about 80 km per hour;
  • Weight - about 300 kg;
  • Turn radius - 2.5 m;
  • Independent suspension of the front axle;
  • Independent rear axle suspension;
  • Hydraulic brakes with all-wheel drive;
  • Shock absorbers, combined with elastic elements;
  • Length - 2,5 m;
  • Height - 1,3 m;

How to make a strong frame for buggy

The design of the frame uses steel seamless seamless pipes. It is necessary to take products with an external diameter of 25-30 mm. The thickness of the wall of the harvested pipe is 2 mm. To obtain a smooth fold (without creases and creases), the tubes cut into the required lengths are densely packed with sand. With the help of a blowtorch or a gas burner, the places of the supposed folds of the future frame are heated. With the help of clamps and rigid slipways, the desired shape of parts is obtained. All parts are checked against the template, adjusted and adjusted to the desired size.

We seize the prepared fragments of the buggy frame with welding. How to make a strong frame for the machine with your own hands? The preparatory step will allow you to see and eliminate shortcomings and unexpected errors. Then all correctly and tightly installed frame elements are finally fixed.
