Finally able to drive to drive this thing around and test it. This thing is unstoppable it never gets stuck, doesn't spin its just full traction all the time. But the frame needs braced, Needs a metel front end, A better seat, And it needs some steering lol ( It only goes straight lol )

But tell me what ya guys think? Open to all suggestions.

Thanks, and no, 4wd is in the future plan lol. I got a set of atv tire with 4bolt rims im gonna swap on..20in

Also the rear steering set up works pretty good, steers this machine with no problem, It does surprisingly well with a
locked tranny. But here are some pics of the set up. New cast iron front axle too.

Front axle and bigger temporary front tires

I like it. It's smaller than a typical machine.

Question: The steering looks like it will steer incorrectly. When you turn left, you will go right? I am wrong, yes?

Yes you are right, left is right, right is left.

Update,

The steering quit working, it just destroyed the rod ends now the tires will turn 90* without effecting the steering.

Back to just goin straight, Its got a straight axle set up (3/4in) with heavy dudy bearings.
This set up does great just have no steering lol.

Its front wheel drive so the big tires are the front end and the small tires are the rear end.
Its a backwards set up but it works.
