ARMA super mod!
« on: September 19, 2010, 06:39:26 PM »
well after trying to figure how to change a few things  on the super mod i was building i decided to start from scratch and learning from the mistakes i made on the first one, i believe this build is going to be way better and way stronger then old chassis, i started with a walk through mtd chassis, i uses 1 1/2'' square tubing for front axle and 1'' square tubing for chassis braces..

I hope to have it all done by then with a mild engine, and if so i will be there! Hopefully George and few other super/mods be there or maybe race with the super sportsman's!

well got the steering done, with just a little under 1/2 turn lock to lock i love it, with a vertical engine and rear steer was not easy, moved engine back about 3 inches, raised engine about an inch as well to make exhaust easier to build, and the fact that walk through chassis does not have a very flat spot for engine to be mounted, figured this was easier to do, and gain some crankshaft to ground clearance as well, fuel tank will be mounted in front grill area, and have not yet decided if gonna run a battery or not, next up is getting ragb mounted, seat is higher now, maybe able to put ragb back far enough that chain will not run through the fender, just have to see.....more later!
