I got the wheel spacers installed today after my uncle machined some counterbores in them so they would fit onto the wheel horse hubs.   Oh my god this thing handles like a dream!   I was ripping laps around my house in third gear wide-open throttle which is set to about 3600 RPM right now.  With the new tire rods,  alignment, the pulley swap and these rear wheel spacers to widen the track width it is so much fun to drive around on and it doesn’t want to tip over.

Looks good Carl! Should be more fun now that you don't feel like you're tipping over, haha. You think that your transaxle will handle the little extra stress? Hehehehe.

@Double W Cross Ranch Yes I'm pretty sure I'm running the same exact bear claws that Mr. Modified is running on his Simpliciity Adventure Edition.  We both also have 8hp engines.  Maybe we should go head to head at Haspin?  Tug of war maybe?

@AllisKidD21 The transaxle is made to handle the stress.  The axles are 1 1/18"!  Plus my dad and I have been running 50 lbs worth of wheel weights in the rims of our C-125 and C-105 for years without hurting anything.

Yeah that was a joke eh? I was being sarcastic, cuz I know how heavy duty those transaxles are. Hahaha
