This thing looks like a neat idea so far. Small machines with an engine that takes up half the frame always looks cool.

Got some progress made today.

Started to mock up a 2 seater seat.

Mocked up the front end so its almost a rolling chassis.

And I desided to pull the v-twin of and save it for my racer project and I
went ahead and put this 5hp B&S on that I got from a push mower.. runs great.

Some of you guys might think a 5hp motor is to small but its all about gearing if its
geared right it will do just fine...I wanted this motor instead of the v-twin because for one its pull start,
it does better on gas, its easer to start, and its a flathead. And also I wont have any wiring to deal with sence its
pull start..so there will be no battery dyeing out on the trail, no wiring I will have to worry about getting wet and shorting
out..so overall this motor will be better for my tractor/go kart.

Yeah same here..Im still working one figuring that out..i just need to find a right axle gear box or a peerless style gear box.
But for now im using my k46 hydro until I can get the actual drivetrain all figured out.

Looks great Truckin, and I bet 5hp is more than enough with the right gearing.
