The bead lock is on the left because I'm waiting for the 8 x 7 wheels I ordered, (The beadlock is the RR from my super mod lawnmower) it's an 8x8.  the LR and RF will both be 8X7 wheels (16X7.5X8 tires) so I put the bead lock on the LR to not make it be an advantage as it would be on the RF.  the RR is an 18X9.5X8 on 8x8  wheel.  Jeez I heard all the whining at the track about having a beadlock I didn't think anyone here would care lol.   With 5.5" of stagger it doesn't turn right unless it's on the trailer Wink.    I'm surprised nobody has asked why the motor is on the right side.

Pit guy has the right answer, The motor is about 40lbs and the driver is 200 + (well most of us are)  so the driver is off set to the left even with the frame rail.  We are using a jack shaft,

Im from upstate ny and I race a supermod in a local lawnmower organization. I'm trying to get people I race with to build something like these and race at local go kart tracks. Is it ok if we build something similer to what you built?

I'm not sure what they will cost,  I'll talk to the guy building them.  We would like to have everyone running the same sealed motors and spec rules so we could keep the costs reasonable and race together,  I'm sure if a group wanted 5 or more chassis you could put any motor you want on it.  you can find V-twin dirt demon on facebook   He's the "Guy"
