Might be too small for an offroader- could lower it and make a mod - shouldnt be too hard with the chain drive.

Get some smaller wheels, different pullies and some sort of minibike/go kart brake and itd make a neat hot rod.

if you wanted you could raise it and due to the chain you could make suspension, fearless tried and couldnt do it due to the transaxle but you could!

That would be a cool machine. Definatly ditch the Teccy.

Being so small, it could acuatlly be awesome off roa, fairly light weight so great for hill climbing and stuff, plus you could fit it through smaller spaces. I'd mod it for off-road or speed. Maybe a bit of both, a sorta low machine but with agressive tyres?

Yes that would be legit would probably need to mod fenders though, but my friend i know can sell me some agressive snow/mud tires (carlises (spelling) for $40 canadian that fit on current stock rims. Only time will tell lol for now if i find a briggs ill leave it stock for a while

what would be the best ratio? im thinking of putting on a 4 horse briggs 2 stroke lawnmower motor and i kinda wanna go stock then again i dont. Biggest challenge would be the fact that since its a lawnmower engine, theres a hub where the blade mounts and would be inpossible to get a pulley on it without cutting it of. would this change the throw on the crank???

mine runs a 4 inch front and 10 inch back, great for offroading but way to slow over all slighly faster than walking speed, im going to try and put the transaxle off the snapper on it for two reasons, try out the gears, see if there good and also its got a 5 inch pulley stock on it! which will make the ratio similar to fearlesses What a Face

the reason mines so slow offroad is cause it hasn't got any suspension so i feel like my butt is going to kill me if i go too fast lol. you could probs go for a 1:1 or 1:1.2 or similar with suspension, fearless doesn't have any but still...

Mine's 1:1 and seems fine. Seat springs are all the suspension you need! Wink
