No, nothing tall or plush. It is thin in most spots and I keep it mowed pretty tight. The only other thing that makes me nervous is that it is kind of bumpy in some spots.

A buggy is great but best on a track, smooth dirt or short grass. If you have any rough terrain you want to run in then the volcano , avalanche or tsunami would work better.

i run my hurricane on low cut grass, like a lawn but in anything more than a few, meaning 3 or 4 inches, you would need something with more clearance.

Will see how a an old .27 does fairly soon.............they called and said my mounts were ready finally, now all that needs to be done is drill them and set up the exhaust and were off to the gear stripping contest. I got 20 sets of mounts made to set up and I'll have the clutch set up and everything including the exhaust in the next 2 weeks

Check your exhaust gasket, fuel line tubing and fuel tank for leaks. Make sure the needles aren't set too lean.

The SH is an actual good name brand. The vx is something that pretty much comes with all the chinese trucks. The sh is much better.

the sh has more power, starts up easier and is much easier to tune and holds a tune better, i have one in my volcano.

No that bell is too short. You would need a deeper bell. Look at HPi bells. Thats what is compatible.
