Bigger balloonier tires and that could be quite the rock crawler.
Southeast Michigan Dark Side Rider 4 Honda Reflex scooters & a Big Ruckus Originator of the "Darkside" Honda Reflex. "Yeah dude, that IS a car tire there on the back of my scooter." Sometimes I'm so far outside of the box, the Hubble telescope can't find me

"It would be legal for me on the streets of L.A." To be street legal in most states, the speedy spider buggy would need to be a 3 wheeler, classified as a motorcycle. A four wheel vehicle capable of over 20 mph will require a crazy amount of safety equipment. -If the spider buggy had a published max speed of 20 mph, it would be street legal under Federal Law as a "Neighborhood Electric Vehicle". If I was them, I would build a 20mph max version (upgradeable to 30 mph). -There is also a separate category in Federal law called the "low-speed vehicle", with a max speed of 25 mph. To legally go that extra 5 mpg on the street, the vehicle must be equipped with "equipped with headlamps, stop lamps, turn signal lamps, taillamps, reflex reflectors, parking brakes, rearview mirrors, windshields, seat belts, and vehicle identification numbers".
