Well i got the battery mounted and straped down with a bungy cord and seem to work good.
Also i went on a small romp to test the bumper and to see it the battery would stay in place and it did.

I wouldn't trust that bungee cord for anything other then temporary use. If you can't get metal straps I would suggest using a a thin ratchet strap.

Well guys i really did some progress today and forgot my camera ill get pic tommarow.
So anyways i took the rear tires off the rim and took a set of car tires and rims and welded them on the stock tractor rims so now it got a wide stance and rides cool.
I also messed with my throttal and now it can open up like it should and i can still use the stock throttal setup.
And i also got to test it i took it on the road and floored it in fowerd and floored it revers and done some small wheelies and small burn out just enought to leave a black mark, i tested on it hard to make sure my weld were strong and i ran out of wire so i only got to do a 3in bead and like a 1in bead on the left side and ran out of wire but the right side is welded good with 4, 3in beads. ill finsh welded the right side when i get wire.

i like it! the ontly thing i don't like is the rear rims. maybe cut off one side of the rim that's closest to the chassis? look on my thread, youll see how i cut up my rims to fit the 4 wheeler tires.

Yeah i seen the video but i cant do that becaues the rims are weld straight to the car rims.
Or do you mean cut where the line is in the pic?
