hey fellas i did it for a giggle with full intention of swapping them into there supposed direction. with the rears that way the outer edge has more of a sharp edge to dig into the ground as they spin. might actually swap the fronts but traction at the front isnt an issue. it just gives more traction at the rear. when i had mickey thompson baja claws on a 4by every one said for 4wding they need to be reversed to allow more bite to drive out of ruts.

That thing looks awesome finished!

The problem with the ag tread reversed is that they're designed to dig down through the soft stuff and push it out of the way to keep clawing forward. With the tread reversed, it'll do the opposite and pull the muck in towards the center of the tire, lifting it up instead of digging down.

Good for doing 4WD donuts bigsmile

um havnt done much.  prob is im a project person. its finished so it got shoved into corner of shed and i started work on my car. its been out for a lash around the yard a few times, its so wet here right now water is getting flung every where. started making a dummy spare wheel cover for the back which ill bolt on tomorrow. ill look at getting a diff sprocket to half its speed and double its power. thats half the reason i havnt done much with it as well i guess. to fast for the boy and not powerful enough to climb things for me........

been really slack. this thing isnt even 100% finished yet. one more shocky to paint and the steering wheel to finish. but hey its a vehicle so it will never be finished.

heres a little video of a quike run at the local plantation area
http://youtu.be/Nq9_l05VAck

was trying to teach the boy to give it to it when in doubt. didnt always work. but in fairness to him it wasnt running properly either. probably old fuel as it wouldnt rev out. found this out at the end when i took it for a spin.

of course things to do are bigger tyres. i need to set the clutch up to hook up later as motor doesnt get full power up before it fully engages. either that or a bigger motor.
