I fingured out a DETACHABLE OUTSIDE LOCK! I havent tried it yet because I dont have the parts, but I can find any holes in it. What if you had a rod with ball bearing supports (fearless has what Im taking about holding his axle for the racing mower) Then you'd add to gears to the ends, (justline the ones INSIDE a trans case) on the ends, the bearing supports could be mounted DIRECTLY TO THE TRANS AXLE., as there are mounts for the transaxle to the frame) Lastly, youd need to weld, or machine the axles to hold a gear on each side. (these go on the axles for the wheels.) This would DIRECTLY link both wheels, thereof, not needing any welding, so NO crap inside the trans. Anybody punch any holes in this idea?

Seems expensive and unnecessary. You could buy a duplicate transaxle off a scrapped tractor for the same price or cheaper than having to do all of the mill work, as well as all the parts required.

Plus since the gears are exposed, you run the risk of seizing them with rocks, gravel, etc and since they arent lubricated they would get hot and wear quick.

I know you'd hae to have at least one spare transaxle or a bunch of spare gears. If the heat thing arised, Im sure you could revamp the entire thing to run off of chains and sprokets. and the only milling I was talking about is for the keyways for the gears/sprokets

In this hobby, a lot of stuff guys try is most of the time unnecessary. The point is to see how far and what kind of neat and sometimes wacky ideas we can attempt to try. Sounds like a neat idea. I'd be curious to see if it can be done.

Sounds alot like the old 60's hot rods/drag racers using a 'quick change' rear end - the rear end has a cover , pop the cover and 2 'stubs' with the gears are actually separate from the main rear axle ( little or no gear oil comes out) and can swap gears almost instantly.

This is what one looks like:

Use them hot rod rear ends for IMCA Modifieds. Cause of the quick gear changes. Used in all kinds of stock cars lol. Had to add that in
