Hot Rod Buggies Part 2

I figured I'd an an indepth WIP series on the second buggy.  I'm keeping this design straightforward so hopefully this will be of some use to anyone who wants to follow along.  The lootin's good this time of year!
I started with a trukk chassis.  I clipped the last section off to shorten the overall length.  I want my buggies low to ground, right down in the weeds so I clipped the front leaf springs off an moved the front axle to the front of the frame.  I flipped over the rear axle to drop the back end down.  I also installed the engine at this point.  I should really scratch build the block, but my time is now so limited it opted for the easy way out.  All I did this time was chop the scoop off the top. I don't want the buggies to look exactly the same...

Hot Rod Buggies Part 1

Here's what I've been working on.  No WIP pictures as I had several false starts and needed to get out a proof of concept for myself:

Sharing from the Fanboy- Irondog Studios

If you like Orks and haven't checked out this site then shame on you.  The builds are top notch, painting is great, and his style is super characterful.  One of my biggest inspirations when I started my orks.

Here's the first full cast of the kit, with all the resin parts:
