They have a 3 inch pulley on the trans and a 4 or 5 inch on the motor and have removed all idlers they have the belt jack-[img]/club2//attach/UCD/censored.gif[/img] tight! they just shove it in gear and then shift the 5 spd up thru gears to go faster!the motor is 11 hp briggs stock,we cleaned carb and put a new magnerton on it thats it, it works great!,they also still kept the brake to stop it!,

No,, their's is just a front eng tractor with 1 belt to drive the stock trans thats it,Some guys use the type system that you do,but ours doesn't,some guys take out the pancake type stock trans,put a go kart live axle in,with disc brake, and drive it off a small rear eng rider trans.Then you have option of changing all kinds of gear ratios with sprockets and belt pulleys, etc..but thats considered experimental X/P[modified] class ours is S/P stock class,

The ones at our local track get about 40-45 also using the 5" and 3" pulleys on a straight belt. Hoping to modify my 11hp monster truck that way. Had a chance to buy a ready to race chassis for $150 and after a month of pleading the case the wife said ok. But theres always a catch to that kind of answer. I havent bought it yet. Very afraid now. Have fun with it Dave!

Looks fun. I'd want to widen the wheels on the axles to improve the stability.
