Something for the Collection

This thing followed me home yesterday. :m

It is kind of fun but it is still just an overgrown go kart. Something anyone can just get in and drive. I was surprised in how much gear noise they make though. After researching it , it appears it is normal . There are 3 torque limiters in the trans and they clack all the time. Again ,just the nature of the mini beast. It does handle surprisingly well on the hard pack. Need to make a quick LS trip to try it in the sand soon as paddles show up. Also get the block house at LS's garage doors back in operation so it can have a secure home with it's bigger brothers when there.

Nice score Faber. You and the kids will love it.

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

The Yammy turbo kit would really wake it up. If I were to buy one for myself that would be a necessity but for the kids and wife,it's just fine as it is.

The thing will run 80. Remove the speed limiter and it can hit 100.In all honesty,the best dune mod that could be done is the trans gearing reduction that is offered. For open desert or hardpack it's pretty good even though 1st is still a bit high geared.

well i cannot say i am surprised especially after buying the new place down there. your right the wife and kids will love it. i assume it has real safety belts coming and arm restraints?  scott smilth purchased one and it already had the gear reduction done and the super charger kit added to it. sounds like both make a sizable diff compared to stock.

the gear reduction for the dunes would be nice for sure. Supercharger kit allows stock internals but any turbo kits really need better rods. None of that will likely be done to this one. Now ,IF it was my ride and my only ride a 350-500 HP turbo kit with some serious clutch upgrades would be on my must have list.Of course a bunch of other stuff would be needed as well.
