New tires arrived today. hi runs 18x9.5x8 and 13x5x6
lowered the stance more than expected. I like the ride though. still need to weld the front end so i can push it a little more.

Welcome to HEYMOW!!!

Where are you located?   Looks like you could use a little help with your racer getting it safe and up to racing specs.

Where are you planning on racing?

I live in Dime Box Tx. Some help would be awesome. I would like to have good specs, but may never actually race it. Just run around the small town and some private property play.  The frame needs reinforcement , Brake needs upgrade (though the transaxle brake does lock em up) front end needs locking and drop, transaxle needs lock , needs direct steering and the seat needs lowering.

...and I NEED welder!

Start with that.  We want you to be safe.  We also promote racing. 

Running around the streets isn't something we do.  We are dedicated racers.

All are welcome as long as they follow the rules. 


There was an off-road forum.  I'm not sure if it still active. 

There are 3 racing organizations.  All have great rule packages.  All work together to promote the sport. That is why this forum was created. 


If you want to race.  You will get help.
