Looks good biggas! I like the front push bar, should be able to do some damage with that, haha. Do you notice a difference with the lower joints being mounted horizontally?

yeah , a little . not very drastic but once i take it on a romp and beat around on it i am guessing it will handle the abuse better than it did before. i want to put mesh on the push bar then put lights on it after i add some top steel.

They are ball joints off of Chinese quads, i am going to put heim joints on it because the joints have some play in them that heim joints wouldn't have.

Took it out on a romp with the camera on my new mount, did pretty good up until i headed home and down shifted hard and i think i broke a shifter key. its still out in the woods.

Camera mount. looks ugly, but once i tighten up the rear bolts that came loose it will be less shakey.


Red Green would be proud of this one. Didnt have any bugee cords so i use the next best thing.


Got extremely stuck. took forever to get '
er out.

My goodness! That's quite the disaster, that really sucks. Got any plans for a heavier duty transaxle? Like an 820?? Haha

Yeah if i ca get my hands on one, might just find a spicer to throw in it and just live with a junky trans axle or find another mst or 930 and not down shift so hard. I Almost died by going under a tree that fell over the creek to fast and slammed it into a low gear to stop from decapitating myself and thats when all hell broke loose apparently.

Now you can add "Expert Transaxle Wrecker" to your signature too lol.

What a bummer man. It looked like all the gears in there were coated with a nice thick film of oil though.

It was cool , just broken. i only rode it for like 1 min after i down shifted hard, then it gave up the ghost, er gears , when i started going up hill. Probably wouldn't have broke it if there wouldn't have been a tractor pulling into the field i was mudding in at the time. I kinda scrambled outta there and went the back way home through the creek.

Wow man, that's pretty chowdered! My MST didn't have much oil in it when I got it, when I started working on it again I checked her and there was just a little bit in the bottom of the case. Put the 2 pints or so of 75w-90 i had in her and she quieted down a good bit.

What are you doing for suspension on the other one? IFS or solid axle?
