Awesome, I love the body/frame of that thing. It looks like it eats small animals.

Looks like something out of a MadMax movie. I love it. Just curious though, why slicks in the back and knobies in the front?

Engine RPM way more than first thought good for , So dropped tyre size by 3" , Will get some 13" treaded tyre's , Have only run it on bitumen cant wait to get it on dirt , Maybe it won't break ****

Lot's and lot's

Most of the car got changed more than once during the build.

Still not happy with steering servo , Has to much movement in gear box

Brakes work much better with big servo and 19mm master cylinder

Runs 19mm drive shaft with uni's from engine to gear box & diff they are one unit

Want to move clutch back and fit crank mounted starter/generator to engine , mainly for its charging ability

Gear box and diff is made up from pocket bike reduction box modified so input & output are same plane

Crown wheel & pinion are 9" grinder , the center had spring loaded clutch's & one way bearing's on inderpendant shafts

Since blown diff center apart 4 times now . I have locked it for now will redesign locker for better turning

Rear drive shaft's are double ended c/v joint with a spline slip joint between them for 10mm shaft ,

they come from HONDA self propelled push mower

Had to remake rear stub axle's from 4140 as i sheered one off at around run 5

been hunting for something like these, do you have a link where you got them or did they come from a donor mower

cheers bud...i found em for 40each at quickieparts.com

looking at the pipe also gave me a another great source...need to fab a couple to fit within a given space, was looking at boat pipes to alter then rolled cones to start from scratch but now see i can get pocket bike ones for 100bucks for 2 shipped

i'm glad you shared your rig with us...not only is it cool it has helped me source 2 items i was struggling to find that'd work for my current project
