That looked like a strong door with a weak roof and some re-enforced corners.

looks like a solid set up to me, im just kinda partial to a hand throttle set up so i can run seperate break and clutch, with my big feet its hard to fit two pedals on one side lol
the pathfinder tread is like a tread pattern we had on some tires when i was lil and them things never got stuck lol

Yeah my mower is a hydro so i dont have a cluch and i dont use or run brakes so i got the room for a foot throttal.
I still might do a hand throttal see how this setup works.
If the foot pedel is gonna be diffacult to use ill do a hand throttal.
