YUP I have to agree 8's have a more mowish look. On this one I looked at ease of build what was less work. That would be 6's AND I had them versus buying new rims and tires for 8 setup. And they dont bounce as much as the 8's Plus there are more selections available for tires compared to just two for the 8's the hoosiers versus the american racer. Anyways its on hold till I fifnah a customers chassis.

RAGB has a 3/4 shaft coming out of it. I used the center out of a old rear wheel. I torched it out then cut the ugly off then it slides onto the ragb shaft. then I slide a 3/4 keyed shaft into it to extend it.

sorry to post in a old tread, but with center of an old wheel used, did you weld it to the extension shaft or just slid it on with a key?  :doh:

slid it on with a key. The key runs the length of the hub. Mower is now finish except paint. I will take lots of pictures when I strip for paint. Got the customers chassis done  and gone I had basically a week and half to finish this to run it tomorrow at our second race. We have 20 laps on it here at the house. Shes loaded in the trailer and ready to go. Like I said I will post pictures and videos to finish this thread. I did post some pictures of it on my face book page for those interested and cant wait.

Well the maiden voyage was a huge success. Right out of the box or off the build table this hot rod was a blast to drive comfortable, and FAST. Track was dry slick and was a handful to say the least practice went evry well and the heat was even better. With just a 2 lb air change the chassis was great motor with a 1/8 turn on the needles was spot on. starting 5th I won the heat.
Only thing done in pits was tighten bottom primary chain. Feature time on the pole not sure what the deal was with second place mower never come up beside me and I kept waiting and not paying attention to the flagger when Nick on his BIG kohler powered hotrod blew by I look at flagman and it was race on. Had no problem staying with the kohler till I dropped a cylinder. Broke and adjuster on one of the rocker arms.
I was very very pleased with the way it worked out of the box. New designs and changes I made in this chassis made a huge difference. I have video of the feature from the helmet cam and soon as I get it up loaded will get it up.
