here is what roughly 4 and a half hours resulted in. I am so behind on some of my stuff that after the clinic Larry and Jeannie came over spent the night and help me out. So I couldn't re-fuse the offer and we tackled it. This is a combo of Jeannie's pro-x and my Pro-x. Jeannie drives it locally and I will drive it Nationally. Gonna be a rocket. Its an MTD walkthru chassis Very Light and 4 inches off the ground. Burris k21 grooved tires all the way around. Simulated deck will serve for where the feet will actually go. Gonna pop rivet aluminum to the bottom of the frame work. Centrifugal clutch with pulley then a right angle box under the fender. This thing is LOW LOW LOW. Did I say low. I like it so much gonna make a sportsman chassis with another I have.

I like doing things other do not, mainly because I ain't like most others. I think outside the box or try too. You do not have to look like a gorilla riding a golf ball to be competitive. Couple years back I ran a F/X on the US circut using a full sized box frame MTD and finished 4th in points that year. It finished top every race it ran beating the likes of Mike Miller Kevin Penne and Chuck Miller on some tracks. I fit better on a larger frame, it feels better, it handles better, (longer wheel base) and the average spectatot can relate to it more so thanthe itty bitty huffy style chassis which most have never seen. Its as light as any Huffy I have built so far. Only thing left is gear box battery brakes and motor. As it sits in the picture above I can lift it by my self. I won't once its finsihed but the point is a competitive pro-X can be built using a larger chassis.

George,I was wondering how much clearance from the ground will your crank be? It just made me wonder I was thinking we in Kansas have a 6 inch frame rule and I was thinking of insetting my engine and batt to lower the engine and keep me from cutting up the hood on the lawnflite . then build the frame a little stronger.I havent herd back from them yet to know if I can do that.But this year they have a paved kart trak for the home track and we will have to run kart tires.On the briggs twin the crank sets lower then the frame,Mabie trim some off of the crank and redrill and tap it? this would be on the modified.for now just an idea.what do you think?

Havn't checked that yet. I will do exhibitions on pavement but I will not race on it. Especisially with a frame 6" off the ground. Road rash hurts....

41/4 sitting on it in the rear and 4" on the front. I love the look. Throw some turf masters on it and a belt clutch and tranny its a legal chassis for any class in ARMA except super Stock. It does look  wicked fast just sitting there. We even just discussed shooting it with clear and leaving it like it is except painting the the frame.

Not sure why you feel you got on my nerves, you asked a question and I answered it truthfully. Didn't bother me upeset me or get on my nerves. Sorry I you felt I was bothered. I wasn't.

I was just curious,you are saying it is very low yet it is still 4"ride height,do you mean that the seat is lower because of the smaller tires? I really like it and think that I will have to build one like it as well.

The top of dash is only about a 1-1/2 above the knee cap, The top of fenders are below the knee by at least 2 inches, I dropped the nose to give er a bit of rake. Yes with the smaller tires it lower even though the frame is 4 inches off the ground. You see I cut a couple inches off the bottom rear Sub frame i.e. hitch squaring it with the rest of the frame so it sits level. Which drops the whole stance dramatically.

That looks sweet very nice stance. What brand and model of clutch do you run. What size of pulley do you run on you clutch and 90 degree box. Im going to have to build one, but i will have to wait till 09. I need to focus on getting my SP to Run up top first. Thanks
