Thanks! I'm running only 5 psi on the rear tires but I think I need to try like 2 psi, it's rougher than hell on those river rocks. Also thinking a better cushier seat too, this one is pretty dang firm.

My buddies cadet is so cool, it's like it was designed to be a go kart lol, thanks international!

I run 2psi or less in my bighorn 2.0s, yours are the sunf knockoffs that are known to be stiffer, definitely need to drop that pressure down.

Ok, finally cooling off down here in texas so it's time to build the ultimate steering setup. Using a beetle steering box and heim joints, 1 inch links will be used between the joints.
