The first mod i did was four wheeler tires on the back

As you can see here I love to mud it and beat the piss out of it
MTD= Mudding Tractor Domination (aka my tractor) 598450_377403612345936_669322762_n
After a very abusive romp I look at the back and say that the wheels had some extra camber

I Looked underneath and this is what i saw. A cracked transaxle casing. I didnt romp for 3 months after.

Luckily i found a replacement and had it back together in no time
MTD= Mudding Tractor Domination (aka my tractor) 481218_431123293640634_163313664_n
A romp i did in my driveway
MTD= Mudding Tractor Domination (aka my tractor) 71912_431332846953012_752301902_n
I took the hood off just to try something new


Still on the to do list- Bigger tires, Locked transaxle, bumpers



I will put more pics up when more things have been done to it. If you have any suggestions please feel free to tell me.

Some shocks, springs or stoppers in by the front axle will make steering at speed a lot better. And youll tip a bit slower.

Ya no one likes that. It's not too hard to swap in a different gearbox. I'm looking to sell two hydrostatic transaxles!

The only reasons I'd want a hydro is if I wanted to put insanely huge tires, or make some kind of tank or crawler. Other than that, I like the shift type transaxles.
