Buggydepot.com is a web site and a manufacturing company ran by an idiot by the name of Travis Carter. Carter's website is 800 pages of nothing they have no stock they obviously do not pay their bills , that's why they have no stock he posts long winded excuses why he can't ship anything. At the moment he is hiding as he has shut off all communication but that POS can't forever.

If you have his contact info you could get in touch with law enforcement if he doesn't at least give you a refund.
Cause that is just hateable.

Did you pay with PayPal? If so open a claim. That will get you his attention, which will lead to a part of a refund!

I called them yesterday. They were open for business and talked to me for about 5 minutes. First time I ever dealt with them but it was a normal experience. I have read many BBB claims that paint a different picture.

The only thing I've EVER heard about buggy Depot is complaints. Never a positive experience.

The BBB is a BS organization. You pay to be BBB accredited. So filing a complaint to them is just a waste of time.

Ive heard a lot of great things about the Buggy Depot Products...but customer service and shipping is all complaints. Not too many options though for Spiderbox specific parts.

Wrong answer. It took a few days and buggy depot refunded me my money after I called them. I posted on here somewhere a year ago.

If itís a yerf dog spiderbox you should go look at the last years buildoff winner. I used the oem front a arms and put Yamaha banshee front spindles and brakes on mine. It was quit simple when you see how I did it since you can weld. Any questions feel free to ask me.

I used the oem rack with new boots from BMI karts and welded extensions on the end for my new rod ends. And I would attempt to use the master cylinder that came on the 230 if possible. I used a wilwood in mine which works good but you gotta push hard for it to stop decently quick.

I don't know much about the R&Ps on the market, but you should be able to alter the front end geometry a bit to get better turning radius. Sinply drill some holes in the spindle arm closer to the spindle(basically you're relocating the tie rod ends slightly).
This should turn the front wheels more and thus decrease turning radius.
Ever consider a differential?
EDIT - Oh yeah, I was reading up about Buggy Depot, and I found out that Travis actually has an account on here.
Only ever posted about 3 times in response to Joe's complaint, and hasn't posted since.
If you look it up you'll see some more long-winded excuses!

One of the guys in yourube made his own rack cutter. I want to say “ratherbwelding” but I could be mistaken. I’ve used buggy Depot recently for parts. I had no communication issues. Received my parts. One order was wrong and they fixed it quickly (wrong cdi)
