you should put some shocks on the rear or the thing too. since your doing a chain sprocket drive you can try to set it up like quad would be.

Has some serious potential- you might need more reinforcement on that rear axle and front axle setup tho- plus room for alot larger tires. Cool.

whats the diameter of the axle?

i can't find that website you told me about, the main part being it needs to fit a lawn mower tyre and has to have the special key-way for them...

That why you need a trailer with some 45 gal. drums. Fill em up and make mud yourself! Thats what I used to do. Becuase my house is near the bottom of a small valley, the woods nearby are always muddy, even after 3 weeks of solid sun it was still damp in there!

That makes it all the more fun to ride Wink Never know when it'll topple and fall on you Twisted Evil Laughing I'd make it a little wider, alot of the monster mowers use pick up truck wheels and tyres, and those things are heavy so they dont have that problem.

Chunk: "That makes it all the more fun to ride - Never know when it'll topple and fall on you"

Thats the reason i took my murray apart - seemed stable being still ( was stock hieght and seating position), but going over 30mph, forget it- was seriously unstable - any lil bump and it would dart in that direction - a serious handfull keeping all 4 wheels on the ground- dont get me wrong, the rush of going that fast was amazing- always had to be wary that at any second you might do a faceplant on the ground.

My mild mod MTD tho - that thing id go full speed all day - handles awsome being lowered.

I was joking when I said that Laughing guess its just my sense of humour. Rack and pinion steering is great in monster mowers

i personaly think the monster mowers with trucktires that are so tall are stupid as hell you see all the videos of them mudding and they dont do good for nothing considering they use half balled or completely balled tires and it is stable and not that top heavy but im also not taking it on any real tipsy trails to make it roll

Not really sure. Do you have a tensioner?

I'd ask Kel Anthony (from Xtreme Mower Mayhem) and see what he says. He's the best on monster mowers rabbit
