(self build buggy)
Twin seat any engine Road Legal Buggy - Designed & Manufactured in the UK by Blitzworld
The Joyrider Sport Self Build (Kit-Car) buggy offers twin seat layout with a rear mounted engine for maximum grip and handling. The Joyrider Sport is the very latest Road Legal buggy from Blitzworld and has had already some very high performance engines fitted, including the popular Honda Type R, with over 220 bhp, Citroen Saxo VTS (120 bhp), Peugeot 305, Ford Zetec etc.
The design for the Joyrider is significantly different than the previous KR2 (single seat) and the KR3 (twin seat), with a new rear trailing rear arm system, new improved driver roll bars with extra 2" headroom, new top front suspension units and side nerf bars. We are constantly developing our buggies and through different applications and engines used our vehicles have proved to out last cheap imported vehicles; on reliability (standard parts), structural strength (42mm dia roll cage), ease maintenance (accessability), parts availability (standard car parts available all over the world).

The Chassis for the Joyrider is very strong to take virtually any engine option from a bike to a large 2L plus car engine.
The Joyrider Sport chassis is made from very strong CDS 1.1/4" Tube, with 40x40x3 box section on the base of the chassis for strength. The frame uses triangular sections for added strength and the drivers section is protected by front and rear crumple zones. The chassis is jigged and argon-mix mig welded for strength. The floor is folded profiled aluminium checker plate. The chassis has build in side rear wheel nurf bars to protect the rear axle hitting objects and thus damaging the drive wheels. For road use we add front and rear bumpers for IVA requirements (see option on chassis selection). We also offer engine covers and guards for the road legal requirements.
We have now integrated into the chassis a metal bonnet and metal bulk head around the hanging pedal box, with side impact driver protection bars with an integral nurf bar built into the chassis side, for driver and passenger safety, this has being approved by the new IVA regulations.

The Joyrider can be built with any engine, but we recommend a car engine over a bike engine as it is more powerful (more torque), cheaper to run, cheaper to fit (no complex gearboxes), and faster. The chart below gives some typical performance figures of a R1 bike against the standard Saxo VTS car engine. The bike final bhp is low due to the vehicle has doubled in weight from the initial weight, as the car weight has halved, thus doubling the performance and reliability.
The Joyrider due to its use of standard car parts is very low maintenance, and repair parts are very easily available from Motor Factor stores.
Typical Maintance 12 Months
On a typical year testing the Joyrider on some of our 2500 acre extreme tracks (some unnaviagable by 4x4 vehicles) we took the buggy beyond its limit, and we broke a few parts, and hence updated some of the standard car engine parts including engine mounts and drive shafts.
This is the typical maintenance from our own Joyrider buggy in 12 months testing, run on extreme off road tracks.
Features & benefits
The Joyrider buggy can be adapted to many configurations to suit peoples requirements, here is a list of the main benifits of the buggy.
