I vote sell it unless you plan on building a slow speed crawler, like a rock crawler

If I owned a hydro id just crawk around because even as a mudder you cant get a enough wheel spin for it to be worth it

A geared up hydro would make a lousy go kart- too much "engine braking", won't coast for squat. Either build yourself a crawler, or sell that tranny and buy what you need.

Sell it. I'm a big fan of hydros for slow trails and off roading but gear drives are a whole level better performing. Sell that hydro, and whatever parts you know you won't use.... and get the transaxle you want.
