Thanks yall

I hope the rear tire hook up too but if not then I have my eye on a set that will.

I got the idea for the safety tether from a friend.

On the battery, thats one of the new slim Optimas. It fits much better then a regular car battery and its almost the same size as a mower battery. I also use it on my derby mower. Not to mention im sponsored by Auto Zone and get my batterys cheap, I only gave $40 for that one.

Oh thats cool, being sponsored... around here, if we asked to be sponsored for anything but auto racing we'd be laughed at and told to get the F out lol

Just got the engine and new pulleys all dialed in and damn it is fast. Was out playing and broke the spiders in the locker (1 wheel pill) and flipped it. It still runs fine but smokes do to all the oil that was in the carb and cylinder which should clear up tho. Now I got to find another diff to fix it. Heres some pics.






Now for the damage. Broke 2 teeth off of both spiders on the right side.



Broke one tooth off of one spider on the left side.

I was waiting for it to roll with how many donuts I was doing and how fast it is now. It happens. At least it didnt dent the hood to bad and it was a great test on the battery and hood mounts. Lol

I just going to weld the piss out of the diff and axles to make it all one piece and see how long that last. Till then im going to put my spare trans with street tires in it so I can make it to a car show this weekend.
