George, This is so much what i needed to help me. I have the same exact MTD as this one and i pulley swapped it. Installed a foot throttle, removed the governor, and painted it. Looks good goes fast but its not safe and now i want to get into racing. I live in the heart of cleveland ohio and racing is a distance from my house or so i would think. Having this as a guide to doing thing the right way is what i needed. For you to take the time to do this just for your internet buds is an awesome thing. I am new so i am sure i will have questions for you. One thing is your tires? I thought the tires needed to be smaller in the rear for more speed? Maybe there is a thread on that? But thanks so so so much.
                                                                                    Fellow racer,
                                                                                         Brian!

Brian the tire size used is dictacted by the rules. US requires 8" while ARMA does not they use 6 to 8" Gearing is what gives you the speed.

I printed out your 07 super sportsman build and I'm going to use it as my guide to build my first. My question is, if you were to do it again today would you change anything and if so, what? Someone suggested 1 in tubing to stiffen frame. I haven't looked into what problems that may cause. I got my mtd torn down. I ordered some parts from EC and bought 3/4in 16ga tubing. Ready to get started as soon as I get my hands on the rear bearing weldments.
