Competative Off road.........


bit of a blast from the past here........ mentioned before that my family had background with competative offroading..........so heres a few pics.

circa late 80's, early ninties........plenty of bajas doing the rounds then

http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c365/dumone/25012009014Small.jpg

we dug out the rivmaster buggy from it's hole and plan to have it running again this year, not unusual to have it in this state, every year after the kempsey 1000, it needed rebuilding again as the event was super rough and harsh on all the cars that dare enter.......... runs turbo water cooled kombi motor with terrific reliabilty..

i'll go through the photo albums and didg out some better action shots soon!

"long term":yes:.........motor and box remain ready in storage, lots of other stuff to rebuild tho YEAH!!!...........even after 10 + years of racing the watercooled motor looked great in the bearings and rods + heads!! mostly STOCK engine........you can imagine the abuse it suffered, constantly on boost for hours.....no intercooler + SU carb! car was originally 2.7 sigma scorpion engine with turbo and twin SU's can you say POWERFUL!!!!............went VW to chase better handling via lower center of gravity and weight reduction, worked well!!!

LOL, yeah ain't that the truth, got the $300, just short by the odd $299,700. I'm guessing a mid-80's version - mines an '84

This was my Rivmaster,,, i ran it for a few years (on & off) up here in Qld,,, always wanted to do the Kempsy but never got enough time/money & didn`t really have decent enough suspension so always thinking that i`ll one day overhaul/upgrade,,, well it didn`t happen & we just kept pounnishing ourselves every meeting,,, by the time we had recovered from one meeting it was time for another & it just stuffed us both... physically, mentally & financially

http://madmatt.bigblog.com.au/data/1/8412/image/mrdirtbug206984746898188372120090207223317.jpg

i wish i didn`t sell it tho,,, it was huge amounts of fun,,, the P76 alloy V8 made for great torque for climbing hills & getting off the line & out of corners,,, just going "Through" corners needed a bit of practice as i was soooo used to driving the minis that this thing was just soooo wrong to turn compared :-) i got used to it tho, just chuck it in & get it slideways :-) then wheel-stand it out :-) jumping was awsome fun tho,,, man it used to launch :-)

Ahhhhh,,,, those were the days :-)

Thanks hellbugged for bringing those memories back :-) oh the pain of a sore back & the flu after every meeting :-)

This looks like some good stuff. I went to the Waikerie Enduro this year hoping to see some VW-based stuff and came away somewhat disappointed. The sport seems to have become some kind of big-budget playground for professionally built tube-frames full of expensive components from the USA. I only spotted one VW beam axle in an older (although still very competitive) buggy, and no Baja bugs. There was a buggy running a fibreglass Beetle roof and Baja front clip, but it was a big-dollar tube framed affair with a V8 in the back and fabricated wishbone suspension all round with metre-long shocks which each cost as much as my car.

Now that is a good idea. I ran a home made buggy for a few years and was always able to stay in the field till the end even placed a few times late 70's .
Ran a rotary powered baja for a while with a mate too.
I have just thrown a buggy together in the shed for shits and giggles but if an historic or nostalgia class was put together I would build a new frame with the odd race in mind or maybe go the Baja route again but with a VW engine

ok ill have a chat to a few freinds and see if we can have aub catagory for all cars with either a logbook given ouprior to 1985 or built to todays standards using parts from 1985 or earlier
for example most rivmasters featured earlier but with themajority of orignal parts
or taking a beetle and chopping it to bitz,s, putting a modern cage in it and maybe a subaru EA82 but leaving it at that
