Looks good. I might look in to doing a 4 link with some Chinese atv shocks or something... Have you noticed an improvement in ride quality?

Looks good like the way it sets. I think the panhard bar has to much angle. When you hit full compresion its going to kick the axel out to the right i would say close to an inch. Thats not much but if you run it at high speeds like i do if you hit hard bump it may throw the tracter to the left enough to make the tires turn slightly and may cause you to pile it all up on top of you. If possible the panhard needs to be as level as posible. To minimise axel movement side to side. Just a lil food for thought.

ok guys sorry for the stop of updates had a change of computers
I have the suspension and body done and I am just working on some small things

I decided to build a new nose for it but I wanted a different style

I ended up going with more of a hot rod style and decided to go with white accents


the next thing that im going to do is make some white zoomies 2 on each side to stick with the theme I have now

I got some paint done today and an exhaust mock up for some reason I cant post pictures so I will be uploading them later. I did a white scallop paint on the hood and fenders and cleaned up some of the parts to keep the tractor from looking rushed
