It's very fast, with paddles there's very little wheelspin so it can pull wheelies consistently. As for exhaust I think it's typical buggy, headers come back to 1 big pipe and there's a silencer on the big pipe that you can adjust.

I bet that was fun.
Thanks, have a happy thanksgiving.

EDIT: the guy who owns it rolled it a couple times so he rebuilt the upper cage, I'll try to get some pics this weekend.

I was given wrong info, it's not a wrx engine it's a turbo'd outback engine.

And the exhaust is just cut after the turbo, no muffler or anything like that,

I'll try to get the 4 or so pictures that I took up later today when i get home.

Looks good, it's always a good feeling when you go to the dunes for a weekend and don't break anything.
I'm a little jealous to, I want to build one like it but 4wd and narrower.

no problem, it was awesome, i only rode in the dune buggy's twice, the orange one at night testing his new HID's (scary as heck because he drives like it's nascar) and the blue PLP buggy on the whoops, most of the 3 days i was on my quad.

EDIT: you can't really see the blue buggy but its behind the white buggy in the first thumbnail
