thanks 633! I was doing stick at first...brushing up on the only welding I've ever done (stick) when i started this project. everyone here...i think I remember Jack saying...I was going to love MIG...and damn he was right. much les body movement, repositioning, and re-"sticking". just straight wire feed...it's great.

4REALS!!! WOW love that oddessy wheel. i read about those Honda's...they're gone right? i see a brake on the steering wheel? clutch? gas? for a second i actually thought about doing the gas via hand control...don't know but love that wheel...very cool. thanks for sharing!

as 4 my choices I too like the one on the let as, you can see, that's the one i bolted on first.  I'm going to test with both and see...i just always liked the look of the butterfly

And Shagg the only amazing thing about this is how much help and inspiration I got/get from YOU guys....and this site....seriously.


...does it come in black?

How many turns lock to lock on that r&p? If its more than about one you may loose track of the butterfly one if you get into a bunch of turns....I know I would My pick is the one on the left.

Oh yeah Shaggy by the way....it's about 36" x 18". I'm going to get the exact tomorrow and i'll confirm.

First I was going to use my Blaster Quad Rear

Then was going to do something similar to T-mans rear

Now i'm going with your suggestion (earlier somewhere in this post) to use the golf cart rear. i read they can take as much as 50HP...not that I'm going that crazy but is that believable/possible?

ya me too, the three spoke, man I,m really thinking of getting an R&P, that looks awesome and I,m sure that theres a lot more control.....Oh one more thing when you start to do your tie rods try very hard not to alow any tolerance or play, and when your sitting still it will be very hard to turn but when your moving and the tires are turning then its better.

All I can say is FABULOUS WORK

hay were did you get the seat ?

Thanks T...I will take heed to your advice. And coming from a guy that works at Bat Speed, thanks for the encouraging compliments!

So Shagg (and everyone else) take a gander at the dimensions of this rear...
