Ok. Got some videos loaded today and I'm gonna try to post the links here.
Video one and two I had an exhaust leak between the turbo and the exhaust manifold so boost was next to nothing. These first two were more of a drive around tour to show the area.
Video 3 was before I aired down my tires and I also discovered my blow off valve was leaking and I was not getting much boost and it was delayed.

These are the first videos I ever tried to post. So if you have an issue with them please let me know.

Epic, love your backyard man!

Video 3 was made private, cannot view.

Stick or Auto? Kinda sounds like your clutch is slipping?

Need some vids other than POV, get an observer to film you.
Would love to see it in action!

Thank you for pointing that out I'll go in and see what's up with the video.
It's automatic. It has a belt driven centrifugal clutch. It is the drive clutch / belt set up from a snowmobile. What you're hearing is the rear tires loosing traction. The rear tires are marginal for hard dirt and not too good in sand at all. I have some paddle tires but haven't tried them out yet.
The clutch surfaces could stand to be machined and I'm sure the belt is ready to replace as well as I've "smoked it " a few times.
I'd like to get some video from a camera mounted on another vehicle as well. As soon as I get the buggy up and running again I will get some better videos. I have everything ready to reassemble just waiting on my cam. The way the engine fits in there it has to be installed in parts the block and the head has to be assembled while in the vehicle and the cam has to be installed while the head is off.

Sort of like a puzzle.
