OK, starting a new thread for Li'l Red.  I have decided not to take on any other projects at this time other than finishing up Patriot and now Li'l Red 2.0

Original topic: Li'l Red 1.0

The following is a list of improvements etc. to make it more sturdy and hopefully Haspin Ready for 2021.  I don't expect it to take that long, but I will be headed the other direction in the country in 2020.

MUST HAVES!

  1. Front Suspension (yes @AlliskidD21, I said it.  I will probably take some queues from one of your rigs Mighty's Li'l Red H.E. 2.0 2240318088)
  2. Some kind of Dash tower bracing, I don't want to bust another gas tank.
  3. I HAVE to get rid of that gas pipe exhaust.  Sounds nice though...  LOL


Like to haves...

  1. New tire package?  At least change out the rear tires.  They suck.
  2. New front bumper of sorts to go with new front end.
  3. Rear bumper?  (Not a requirement at this time.
  4. Separate brakes from clutch.
  5. Matching hubs around the rig.  For easier tire swapping.
  6. Stronger bearings for the front hubs. (Don't need Kal's issue from Haspin)
  7. Battery box is broken.  Maybe a new setup or replace the one I have.


Other things that will be done during refresh...

  1. Frame bracing, redo
  2. Fresh paint, more than just plain Red!
  3. TBD....


Right now Patriot has priority, but I will be tackling this a little along the way.

I’m glad I see frame reinforcement on the list! Now that you’ve been to haspin and seen the terrain, you know what needs to be done to make it through. I have faith in you! Hopefully when you come back to haspin you guys won’t be waiting on me and my slant single to catch up hahaha

Or dragging you up the hill first night out.  LOL

Other things I can think of:


  1. Also need to look into the oil drain leak.  It's getting pretty bad.  
  2. Also some new headlights
  3. Maybe some floodlights like Kal.  That came in handy during the night ride.
  4. Better fitment of the hood.  Use the hood's original dash for a template.
  5. Maybe some endo and exo skeleton upgrades...tbd later
  6. A new gas pedal maybe too.

It's marked a lot of territory lately.  Yikes!  Always fresh oil I guess.

Figured out why it's marking territory as @AllisKidD21 says.  I left the fuel shutoff in the on position and it leaked gas into the block.  That fresh oil change for haspin last month has gotta go.  I really need to get around and look into a carb kit for this thing too.

Finally pulled the trigger on a carb kit.  Should have done it long ago.

Carb kit has been sitting on my desk now for a few weeks.  I need to install it sometime.  LOL  I'll finish getting Thor out of the garage and I can move it back in.  I would like to finish up Patriot sometime soon as well.  Fixin to start a rear bumper for Patriot.  See where that goes.

Now for the unpopular post of the day...

I know everyone loves the old hood, but I think I will be going back to the original when I get to working on it more full time.  While the old hood looks cool, it isn't very sturdy on there nor is it functional or easy to work with.  I like the ease of pull a pin and lift off design I had with the original hood.  I will consider another set of those pods to replace the headlights.

Those fronts look familiar... Oh yeah they are on Patriot!

Yep. I'd definitely put pods on it.

Now this is where I get creative... What if...

What if you cut the circled part out and replaced it with a light bar or something similar? I always thought that might be a cool addition to one of those Murray's.

Maybe even add a scoop Mighty's Li'l Red H.E. 2.0 102878487

I see you added "H.E." to the title.

So this is officially Lil' Red Haspin Edition? Haha.
