i am going to make a lawn mower buggy. didnt know where to put the build thread. i cant really start buying for it but i have the frame and tranny cleaned up.
lawnmmower buggy 2013-031
i am hoping on making it look like a go kart/ mini buggy for offroad. top speed i want around 20 mph. yes its a hydro build. i do like my hydro. i ran it for 4 months while i was saving to fix up my current mudder. it was going around 12 mph top speed and through thick and thin. 2 ft of water and up hills. so thats why i am using the hydro. i want to custom weld foot boards and seat mounts and possibly a partial cage. put 8" front rims with 18" tires and maybe a solid axle swap inside the hydro making it wider than it is for better balance depending on what tires i use and how they look

i might modify the frame so the engine sits in the back depending on what i get and rider in the middle obviously. that way rear wheels have lots of weight. and get some fenders if i can. like craftsman fenders or design my own into a cage around the engine kind of. all in good time tho. money comes first.
