Well most of you know this tractor as the one i'm going to be putting the oil cooler on but I feel that it should get it's own thread.
Here is how it's starting out. Only modifications so far are a locked transaxle and a horn:



Is it just me or does it look like it's screaming? That or grinning.



Got it started up and took it for a little romp around my yard.





I'll have a video of first start up and of the romp up later.

Okay, maybe a bit of explanations on the videos is required. The first one was shaky in the beginning because I had to balance my phone on the foot peg of my dirtbike. On the second one, yes I did crash into a tree at one point which reminds me that I need to re-attach the brakes.

Brakes are overrated. The rally has no brakes still, I just cross my fingers and hope for the best.

Well, the phone camera is no more, it has been replaced by a slightly better camera. I only say slightly because the vibration is gone but now the quality is bad. I present to you: The Action shot. I found it on sale at Walmart for $10 bucks and I can say it's well worth the price. I'm thinking of going back for more.



After I got it mounted it was a bit dark out so I rigged up the headlights real quick to go out for a ride.



There we are.



Now in my hurry to get going I just started pressing buttons until it lit up and hoped it was recording. It was not. For that mistake I have no night footage to show you but I do have pictures of the aftermath. Halfway through my first try the tire fell off the rim. Not only does it have a terrible leak, the valve stem is completely screwed to the point that i'm goin to have to replace the entire inlet. Wonderful, right? So I did what any self-respecting ATLTF user would, I coated the inside of the tire with brake cleaner and lit it. Worked great, video uploading of that now.

Great, now it yells with a nose... bounce

And the quality usually comes to show at night with limited lights. But for 10$ I'm excited to see how well it does.
