They both have perks and downfalls - they both bolt the front part of the chassis's on - craftsman chassis do tend to be a bit stronger tho then MTD.

Im going to actually use one of each for mod projects - both speed related and both will use different then stock sheetmetal - MTD will get wheelhorse stuff, craftsman will get murray stuff.

I hope to accomplish steering, brake and gas over my vacation time. A little bit of modding to the axle and spindle ends. Once thats done its mostly bodywork and electrical. I need to get some high speed bearings for the front wheels and a new belt before itll go.

Well, I went to edit my video and... it wasnt on my card. Nothing was, it got wiped somehow, as I watched it on the camera after I filmed it. Stupid thing. So, no video today, expect it at the end of the weekend, ill do a big video.

Well I think this project is dead. I really want to do it, however it has pretty much become a parts body to the Rally, and I dont have enough money to support both projects and paintball at the moment. The Foote transaxle also needs a rebuild since the Peerless went in the Rally. No clue when I will pick this back up.
