Fabrication Disease

Recommended Posts

As you guys probably know, I have a bad case of Fabrication-idous. For the last few months, I have been concentrating on a non HDT project. I was invited by Polaris to build a vehicle for a build off contest they were producing. It was finally launched today. We have a few more days to finish it up. After that, I'll be back on the HDT.

 

Here's the voting link - http://rzr.mn/WURsQt

another vote from me ;)

 

as a past full size sand/desert truggy builder i generally never had much love for the Barbie Jeep ...er... UTV craze :P

 

 

but your concept is really very appealing

i guess the proportional fitting tire size is a very large part of it B)

(especially the 4 seat UTV`s with them tiny "ATV like" tires looks just wrong to me)

i truly hope you win this contest

General 4x4. I looked for UTV, but didn't see it. Saw Motorcycle/ATV, but decided General would be a better place than that. Might have been a bad call. ;-)

oh yes... tough crowd over in G4X4 (some stupid ones as well)

with your expo theme you could also post it in the expedition section

 

towrig section is more fun ... but you still need to bring a thick skin (or fire proof jacket)

Thanks again for the compliments.

 

I'm not worried about the other forum. It went as I expected it to go.
