I just started ripping all the useless stuff off. Spent 4 hours on it Super Bowl day... got it to where I need to be to start adding my parts.... it doesn't look pretty but I will do my best to try to make it look a little better.... this tractor is for my boy (well I had no choice, he called first dibbs on it when we got it) lol....anyway this is so he and I can race against each other......update3-18-2007
i spend 2 hours today and put in the drive system: right now it has a 500 watt motor 40amp controller 24volt power source .. took it for a test drive and is only doing 6mph in 5th gear... seen like the motor it working too hard so i will be putting in a 36v/750watt motor, that should help it out a little... i will take a vid when i change the motor... after that i will strip the paint off and put a new fresh paint to make it look nice... 3/20/07 test run WebPage
