I think it would be much safer doing 15 or 20 on that tractor. I think 20 would even feel fast being up at that height. Awesome looking tractor!

Is this just for going fast or for mudding?

Thats what i thought about putting golf kart tires on my fast murray - to make it wider and more stable - actually made it handle worse, specially in the dirt.

30mph is fast on a tractor - ive been there, with the thing moving around so much, i doubt youll reach 30. I had my hands full just trying to keep the tractor from flipping and going out of control.

Seating position has alot to do with stability also - a stock seat bouncing around isnt good - after i solid mounted a seat lower on my MTD - man what a difference - also solid mounting the front axle helped tremendously also.

Tire size and gearing will detirmine speed - look at all those cars with 33" rims on them - things cant get out of their own way because theyre running stock gears .

Id suggest a helmit when driving it .

I've been30 mph on a lawn tractor with super shitty steering and it was sketchy but this is getting better steering and a wider wheel base so it will handle fine at high speeds and I really lost any low end torque on my last one it went 30 in 2nd gear and had 5 gears
