Ford SHO mid engine RWD in a Fiero Redneck dune buggy
Initial Startup, running in the parking lot by my shop. A few donuts, a few drifts and some straight line runs. A piss poor attempt to laying a patch! lol
My friends and I have spent over 400 hours building this car. It is caged with race seats and harness belts. I plated the chassis and completely rebuilt the back end of the frame to suit my driving needs! I used the subframe from the Taurus SHO and modified it to fit the Fiero. I also plated the subframe and added a 1/2" thick aluminum skidplate! This baby is built to drive the piss out of it! :D
It will be interesting when I start running exotic blends of fuel, as I am only starting off with some 87 Octane fuel to start with here. More to come in time....
I have an MTX and a auto Tranny I am willing to sell!
Neil's Car Works!

August 24, 2009.

$2009 AWD Hybrid Fiero - First test drive!
First test drive with the $2009 AWD Fiero. The video shows the car in
electric only mode, it's so quiet that you can't even hear the motor over
the road noise from the nearby street! This was the first time the new
suspension has been driven on as well.
Here's a link to the build thread:
SHO powered buggy dusting an LS-1 buggy the wrong way!
When I dropped the hammer, the front end came up and I got a little out of
sorts. I tried to find him after the race to apologize but he scooted.
My buggy has a 3.2 liter SHO motor from an automatic transmission SHO, with
a Roots style Eaton blower from an 89 Ford Thunderbird SuperCoupe. It's
puts 278 hp to the ground and has 300 pound*feet of torque from about 1200
rpms up to 6000 where the blower runs out of steam. Really should have
gone with an M-112. Now she's turbo'd
and too scary for this old man. Looking to sell her to someone with bigger
cajones. Craigslist Phoenix. $ 34,900.00
I took it to the asphalt drags also and did a 12.48 at 110 mph on knobbie
tires. What a hoot.
GSXR Powered Barracuda Dune Buggy HQ
All the clips of the barracuda.
Powered by a 750 cc Suzuki GSXR engine, the buggy has approximately 90-100
hp at the wheels, and 120 or so at the crank.
Suspension travel is 12 inches in the rear and 15 in the front. The shocks
in the video were too low on nitrogen.
This buggy took almost 3 years to complete. The whole chassis was hand
fabricated, along with the suspension and driveline.

Homemade buggy build part 1
This is a slide show and first start up of a buggy I am building out of
junk I have gathered over the years. I hope to continue documenting this
build. I think this buggy will be a handfull. I am about 3/4 of the way
finished with it and hope to have some videos of this beast in action this
spring. BTW this is the first bit of video editing I have done so be kind.
Homemade Go Cart / Dune Buggy
The cart is built out of old car parts and junk I saved and cost was just
welding rods, the front end clip was used for easy engine mount attachment,
it has a1L Suzuki engine, the axe is out of an 82 Regal, old VW front end
frame quarter inch black pipe. I call it a Go Cart because it has no rear
suspension I wanted to build this thing in minimal time I have maybe 25
hours into it but it still needs some work of course there is no brakes
have to finish that. I like to build Mad Max like post apocalypse vehicles.
This was a fun and quick build, my next project I promise to have
suspension in the rear and a little more care to detail. Remember
don't try this at home I'm a professional builder of redneck stuff lol. I
like build post apocalyptic vehicles quick from stuff you could find laying
