My knock-off has "meh" audio, but great cam otherwise. No audio plug, though. Also, don't mount it too close to the exhaust like I did, ruined the playback, no it just makes a bunch of popping noises when you replay it.

When the audio gets too loud for mine I think it just turns into what I can only describe as an ocean of noise. Nothing quite distinguishable. Although when it's in the case everything is really quiet. Rolling Eyes

The tranny should last longer that way.i am leaving mine on the murray open for crawling so i dont flip the thing with too much traction. now with the front being all soft and flexable its a good thing i guess.

Yeah that's kinda what I figured. I know she'd go through more with a locked differential, but I dont mind. I'm still having fun.

I'd think the trans would last longer and be sturdier in general if you doc locked it and put axle supports. but it's all up to you really lol

Technically it already sorta has axle supports due to the axle sleeves it has with needle bearings. Basically there's no part of the axle that's exposed.

True. Sorta the same thing going on with my 820. The only reason I plan to do axle supports on Mutt is because I don't want to risk the axles bending when I match the stance in the rear to the front. Plus then I'll pretty much know it's bulletproof, at least for jumps and such hahaha

I jumped my racing mower a bunch of times going 37 mph and never had any issues. But i had my tires under inflated too so , thats prob why i didn't blow it up. so its one of those trannys with the nice front shift but top not side drive ? like the one beal was getting?

I think that's the cleanest 600 I've ever seen haha. I've heard of guys putting ball bearings in those transaxles.

Oh, haha. I'm pretty hard on the three I have, haven't had any problems with them yet. Other than the broken diff pin in this one that is.

I decided to get rid of the little rack that I had on this thing, it's kinda falling apart plus everything I put on it gets covered in mud anyways haha.



It looks a bit better really. I would still like to find a spot for my little toolbox and stuff though. I'm thinking right under the part of the fenders that sticks out at the back.

Then I made a much better seat support thing.





Should be much better! I sit a bit lower too, which is nice. I'd have to take the seat bracket off to remove the battery, but that's okay by me.

Then I thought I'd let 'er stretch out and check clearances with the new fronts.







Looks good! Probably gonna have an issue with the exhaust on the other side, but I know how I can fix that so I'm not too worried about it. Let me know what ya think!

She looks good Allis! I'm not a fan of back racks myself, ruins the look. Although we both gotta work out some storage. Coffee can under my hood won't fit with a car battery(whenever I get that lol). Why the motorcycle style seat? Let me tell ya, it's nice to have a back rest sometimes haha, plus you can bolt on armrests from office chairs like I did on my grass cutting Snapper lol!
