Time to re-pulley for a we bit more speed from the :wh:‘s...

 

Maybe you can figure out the go kart clutch torque converter thingy and let me know how to make it work on my C 85, 95, 105...

 

Oh, and does this mean we now need to wear helmets when we mow...?

  I recall the day my son got his first quad....no interest in tractors after that. 

  But he now owns his own home and does not own a quad anymore, but he does own a WHeel Horse :thumbs:. Kids will come around when there is grass to mow, dirt to till, snow to clear.

  Nice to see yours having a blast!

:confusion-confused:   Considering the fact that their Mom drove stock cars   :auto-checkeredflag:   I wouldn't expect anything less of the girls.    :auto-layrubber:   

How much has the egg production fallen off? I know chickens don't care for too much excitement in their lives.

Looks like they're having a blast. Time to put some paddle tires on the carts & take them out to the sand dunes.

Yeah, they sort of have racing in their blood.  That’s like a poison, one sip and you’re hooked for life,  :handgestures-thumbupright:

 

Don’t let the pictures fool you, I’ve got plenty of competition laps in that yard too... it’s just that I can’t catch that kid in the green kart!

I thought about changing pulleys on one and not telling anyone.... act like I’m heading to mow and lay down a track record!

 

There are a couple sets of clutches in the spare pile, but they are mini bike style with a chain drive.  I think the clutch on the wake winch is for a kart style torque converter.  They look like small scale Harley Davidson primary drives with a built in jack shaft for your final drive.  I know you’re trying to do this with the least purchased parts available, but I think you’re missing some key components to make it work right.

They’ve had quads longer than having tractors, but they seem to sit the most.  Quads, trucks and off road toys are my bloodline side of the girls, circle track comes from their ma.  I’m sure there’s room for all the fun in their lives :handgestures-thumbupright:

They have to be 14 I believe to ride the dunes solo, with a parent nearby for consent.  We have a few years for that, but I’ll just have to teach them how to drive buggy!  :D

 What’s a few more toys to maintain, right?

 

...for THEM to maintain.  There's got to a few broken parts lessons with those carts!

Here is a little action on video.  This was just after they started on the new track, things got much quicker as the night progressed!

Kev, shut it done, shut it down now!! Once you get to drive something that's faster than 4 mph, it hard to go back.
