    I've made a few changes to it for fun, and the main issue seems to be that it has too much anti-squat, keeping the rear from truly planting itself down. That's part of why I feel the Trackfab buggy is much easier to drive, even though it has a similar power to weight ratio.

    But as he says, there are people in the team who are more knowledgeable than him when it comes to more advanced suspension stuff, so I'm pretty sure it's going to be much better than the LKS. :cool:

    its not that easy to drive for me, it doesn't go in a straight line. even though it has awd, it still oversteers every time i give it throttle. The only problem with the prerunner is that when you go sideways, you roll. other than that it drives well. ar162b's ttb suspension is uncontrollable. its either that or the rest of my setup, the race suspension is slow, and it oversteers all the time. the best handling of these three is the lks prerunner.

    Thank you for all the compliments! :D

    It's a prerunner.
    Generally pre runners are more comfortable and not a full race vehicle but they still have long travel to make it across the whole course and a cage encase you mess up. Trophy trucks are pretty much a completely custom vehicle from the ground up. Not a stock piece on it. Unless you want to say that it's a Chevy because they mostly have LS engines haha.

    But this one has original frame rails, just hacked off in the rear for the travel.

    It won't have twin I beam at least for right now, mayyybeee in the future it's a possibility but I wouldn't get your hopes up :p.



    It's not Uni body, it is still a body over frame :)
    YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS, CLASS 1 PIGEON!
    Ah yeah it will contain all the original truck and transmission options
    Twin I beam kinda sucks with handling. This one is double wishbone so it should be way better :D
    Nothing special, it will have the same engines as the original pickup, but the original pick up motor is super fast! :D
    Yes, you will be able to partake in the yeeting as if it is a sky missile. But it can only be Yoted so many times.

    This one has double wishbone suspension, so it should handle a lot better :D! Also it will have triple bypass shocks like the hopper.

    I think there is a demand for a Class 1 Pigeon, now how hard would it be to stuff a massive V8 into the bed of that puny little Pigeon to make a Supersonic Pigeon?

    That already exists. It's the dragster pigeon.

    I am thinking more an SCORE class Pigeon built with a 1000bhp engine in the back of it screaming away like the Ford F-6 on Roadkill, Stubby Bob!

    I have no idea what that means, but if it controls better, then

    and why not have crazy 2 wheel long travel suspension up the front, like a class 1 buggy, but a single motorbike-style trailing arm in the rear?
    that way, it's still 3 wheeled, but it's (hypothetically) way more stable.

    Yeah it would make sense to do that, what else could we do to the car to make it insane?

    Theoretically, considering the config in the teaser just posted on the Twitter page, would it be possible to make a Super Buggy-esque variant? Like with similar custom body panels and stuff?
