Well i really shouldnt but i am - going so start a new build for the build off.

Here is my P.O.S (was going to call it "1st place" )
The plan is to make it a trail beater.  
Tires, speed, brakes, handling, body protection, and cosmetic doodads will be addressed.
The final goal is to keep it as stock looking as possible.

Rims and tires ordered yesterday.  Should be here monday.

About 2 hours after ordering i realised i ordered the wrong front rims but i left it go, should be  interesting making them work.

Just been making lists of what i need and trying to source parts.
Official building start will prob take place around end of the month. Trying to get a few other projects wraped up.

Any plans for the MTD trans and mods for the vary drive setup?

The mtd trans may stay, it really depends on what parts i can find for this build. The parts i find will determine the way i build it.
The vary drive will be removed.

Well if you remove the varidrive and keep the transaxle, you’ll only have one speed forward, one speed reverse. Maybe you’re fine with that maybe not.


Little off topic but I wanted to enter into a mower demolition derby with an mtd. Lower it a bit, cut the turf tread (only stock tires allowed), lock the diff, and gut the varidrive with a ridiculous pulley swap. That way it’s a single speed and I would only have to worry about throttle input. Maybe give that idea a little thought? Wouldn’t be practical all the time but should be feasible

Ok, thread jack over

One pair of tires showed up yesterday and rest of my order showed up today. But when i open the rim box they had goofed up my order, by sending me 4 rear rims and no front rims.  Had to call and get it straighten out, now the new fronts should be here around thursday. All I got to do is send 2 of the rims back.
Ill post pics when everything is here and right

I also left work early today to goto the metal supplier, i bought a pc of 2x4 - 3/16  plain plate aluminum for this build.

The front rims showed up on monday.  The final tire/rim specs are:

         Front
Rim: 10x5 on a 4 x110mm
Tire: 23x7x10 bearclaw

        Rear
Rim:  10x8 on a 4x110mm
Tire:  23x10x10 bearclaw

I chose Douglas.125 polished rims, mainly becouse i wanted a aluminum wheel that had a solid hub area that was lite and cheep, had to be 10in, same bolt pattern.  

Tires i picked becouse of price. But the factors were, they had to have same tread pattern on front and rear, had to have same rim size, had to be the same height, and had to offer different widths.

I was going to buy the black ones for the dirty factor but the polished ones were cheaper. Once they get all beat up looking ill end up painting them.

All i see is dollar signs. Not sure how a mtd fnr is going to work very well with those tires, but should look good. How are you planning on doing the hubs?
