Custom Race Buggy Front Suspension

We found lots of cool stuff on this race buggy built by Trick Toys Fab. Notice the leaned-back, front-mounted radiator for visibility. In front of that the lightweight Warn RC winch with tubular fairlead is built into the chassis. The red horn beside the winch is used to tell other (slower) racers to get out of the way. Below the winch is the front sway bar for high-speed stability and behind that bypass shocks with different valving depending on the position of the suspension travel, great for both rockcrawling and going fast. Also notice the outer links on the front hydro steering. If they get smashed or damaged during the race there are two spares (with spare Heim joints) acting as bolt-in gussets up top on the front bumper.
