Just imagine how FAST they could go with different gearing.

Multiply engine vehicles are more suited for pulling power then speed.

I think something inside them would help. Some of that spray foam stuff gets hard & some stays some what plyable.

I've always wondered about this stuff for that application.

I have been toying with the idea for a while now. I have the parts? But need the time. I only want a 2wd.
