I'm building my first buggy. It's a 4 seat long travel designed for a rear engine v8. I want to use a junkyard ls and rebuild to about 450-500hp. I'm not looking to spend 6k+ on a transaxle and was wandering what options I have available to use. It'll never see sand or rocks. I'm in eastern South Dakota so not much for that worse it'll handle is deep snow. Does anyone have suggestions on what I can go with? I have a manual car currently and drive it pretty spiritedly. I just want to be able to have fun cruising around and playing in the snow. No high RPM launches or any of that but I do want to be able to have a good top speed and quick acceleration while using 35in tires. Any and all help and suggestions is highly appreciated.
