Form follows function on the HydroDynamic Buggy. Friesen says the chassis was designed around all the parts the buggy would need, and their optimum location for best performance, reliability, and resistance to damage. The rig's chassis is constructed from rectangular, square, round, and plate stainless steel, as well as round and plate aluminum. The rig has a 111-inch wheelbase and is 88 inches wide. It weighs approximately 4,300 pounds and has a top speed of around 22 mph. It rolls on Goodyear MVT 395/85R20 tires (approximately 46 inches tall by 14 inches wide) on 8-inch-wide custom steel double-beadlock wheels that Friesen made. It has Light Force and Caterpillar skid steer lighting.
