Some great points came up tonight in the chat room about the project rat-whatever Im working on or rather beginning to work on. One question became a nagging one in my mind so I must ask:
Assuming I run the chassis of a golf cart, built up to look like a rat rod tractor but use all mower parts to power it (engine, transmission/transaxle, etc) can it still rightfully be called a rat tractor? Or would it be better served leaving it behind as an off-topic build?
See I can go two ways with this project right now, but once committed - one way would prevent me from ever using the cart chassis again.
One is to do as I mentioned - run mower powertrain to move this thing - and the other is to gut the suspension and mount it to a mower chassis. I just don't know...
