Purchase a MK1 chassis as a flat pack, as tacked or as fully welded. This has the front-end bulkhead with a mounting plate for a Howe steering rack, the rear bulkhead, and all the shock mounts set up for :
• Front: 2.0 x 10" coil over and 2.5 x 14" bypass
• Rear 2.5 x 16" coil over and 3.0 x 18" bypass
Purchase a set of fully welded Revrange front arms - make the choice of tubed or boxed (upper and lower)
and a set of fully welded Revrange uprights - or simply purchase the jigs and this allows you to build your own arms and uprights as required.
Purchase Revrange Rear arms or find suitable arms. This chassis allows for some Southern cross, Jimco, Cheowith, and other manufacturers - we can supply a dimension drawing if required. You can use any rear arms but it is your issue if something does not fit or work correctly. We can supply the fully welded Revrange rear arms with a mounting plate for the rear hubs if you know what you are using. You can also purchase a jig to allow you to build your own arms.
Purchase our fiberglass panels. The panel set consists of seven panels,
• a bonnet • 2 side panels • 2 rear panels • a dash • a roof panel.
We will supply you with a spreadsheet that has all of the components and their part numbers that we have used on our existing buggy. This includes the Heim joints, frontend bushes, steering arms and lengths, steering racks, front and rear hubs, Front stubs, shocks etc.
This is a complete shopping list and you can find a supplier such as Kartek - and they will be able to supply everything that you need. This is only what we have used and you are free to change any components to a suitable substitute.
We will supply you with .dxf drawings for the following components,
these components can also be purchased from us:
• The floorpan • The roof plate • Rear sump guard plates • tabs for the roof
• tabs for the floorpan • mirror mounts • Rear number panel • Roof number panel
The approx Costs for YOU to build a rolling chassis (shown in US dollars exclusive of any applicable taxes):
Buggy MK1 DIY chassis: $6500, Jigs for the Front Arms, Front uprights and Rear Arms $2450, 7 piece Fibreglass Panel set: $3500
About $20,000 for new High quality components to finish it off (or you could use 2nd hand and save some money), this includes • FK heims • Fox racing shocks • Howe and sweet power steering • Tatum front and 934 mid-board rear hubs • Tatum Brakes (4 piston front and 6 piston rear) • Seats and harnesses • Pedals • Limit straps • Safety gear • Method rims • BFG tyres
The engine and gearbox should be an early consideration. The chassis has enough room to accommodate an LS1 and an Albins box - so room will not be an issue. This chassis is ideally suited as a Class 10 or as an Australian Pro-light, but there is no reason why it cannot be built into a light, strong, unlimited buggy. Once you have chosen your engine gearbox combination you will need to consider axels, fuel tank, radiator, plumbing and wiring.
We CAD a concept in either Solidworks or Fusion. This ensure all components are perfectly suited for both manufacture and assembly. Combining different models also allows for the optimisation of suspension geometry, a crucial consideration in off-road racing.
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a computer-aided engineering (CAE) tool used to analyze how a design reacts under real-world conditions. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) helps to eliminate weak points, improve stiffness and optimise suspension travel.
From the start it was planned to make the MK1 chassis as simple as possible for a customer to build their own buggy. We’ve incorporated innovative features such as male/female connections on some tube notching - this ensure accurate assembly and spacing every time.
Laser etched and numbered tubes, in conjunction with the detailed assembly models and interactive build guide ensures that the process for assembly is as simple as it possibly can be. Access 365/24/7 through your computer, tablet, or smartphone.
Ensuring the chassis is dimensionally accurate and straight is critical. Misalignment will create handling issues and compromise the integrity of the suspension design. We have designed a full size, self-assembly modularised component jig.
Concept to final production of the MK1 panel design was done in-house utilizing fiberglass. Fiberglass panels offer the benefits of consistent high build quality, lightweight performance and generally a superior fit and finish over aluminum panels.
An off-road racing vehicle needs to meet the requirements of a sanctioning body which provides event organisation, liability insurance, and the rules under which to race. The MK1 chassis has been designed to comply with most major bodies.
The front suspension consists of double A-arm design. The arms are available as either a tubed arm, or a full boxed arm. The uprights are designed for a 2" Hollow Bolt-On Spindle. The rear consists of a three link trailing arm and these are available as either tubed or boxed.
Revrange Components combines years of race experience with handmade off-road design, then utilising the latest cad software, CNC engineering, metal cutting, 3D printing and premium materials we produce world class Australian and US built products.
The mantra of Revrange components is form and function - does it look good and most importantly does it do it’s job well, and, if it does than it can proudly wear the Revrange tag.
