Introduction
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.
  • Self build buggy kit 
  • Any Engine car or bike
  • Twin or Single Seat layout
  • Road Legal or off road

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).

Chassis
The  Chassis for the Joyrider is very strong to take virtually any engine option from a bike to a large 2L plus car engine.
  • 42mm Diameter tube
  • Front & rear crumple zones
  • Side nurf bars
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.

Performance
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.

  Std vehicle spec Joyrider Buggy Spec @ 480kgs approx
 Weight Bhp  Speed Weight Bhp @ 480 kgs Speed Relative Bhp @ Ton
 R1 Bike engine 205 Kgs 157 bhp 185 mph 480 Kgs  71 bhp  approx 110 mph 142 bhp / ton
 Saxo VTS 1.6 16v 935 Kgs  120 bhp  140 mph 480 Kgs 250 bhp approx 160 mph 500 bhp / ton
typical performance figures related to a ton


Maintanance 
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.
  • Low maintenance
  • Engine not running to maximum
  • Standard Car engine & box
  • Standard car parts used
  • Parts available all over the world
The Joyrider buggy requires very little maintenance as it uses a standard car engine (if using the saxo VTS) as the engine is more powerful than required and thus the engine is not being pushed to its limit (like some bike engines), we tend to use 2/3 rd, throttle on this engine only, which will still take its 120 bhp engine well over 100 mph with a 0-60 of about 4 seconds. We have found with working with lots of different engines, problems with the existing engines and drive shafts, we now replace all existing engine mounts and build our own captive mounts. We also rebuild the drive shafts using universal joints to give greater articulation that the standard drive shafts.

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.
