I tried using the HF 10" wheels up front on my Carter drifter (with gopowersports bearings of course, I'm crazy, not suicidal). I figures with 4 wheels and a low center of gravity I'd be fine on a...

Yeah, typically the $60 ones have looser machining standards. But I have had problems with one of the $120 ones' bushings that the belt rides on. I've had them lock up the TC twice (one chinese, one...

Yeah, get a comet belt to have on hand when the chinese one wears out. Although the one on my kart made it about 7 months before showing too much wear. Depends on how often you ride, and where you...

I don’t remember you mentioning a 357, what was it on. Either way, it’d be a good time to swap a 420 on there.

Well, a racing plug is good for a racing engine, but it's just too cold for a stock compression engine like mine.

I'd get some sandpaper and scotchbrite for that shaft. Fire the engine up and let it idle, use the sandpaper to take the majority of the rust off, and the scotchbrite to polish the shaft. A bit of...

Yes, tecumseh OHH60s have the same mounting pattern and shaft size as a predator, as far as I know. However, while the predators are the same height, they're about 4 maybe 5 inches longer. But that...

I forgot about plugs. I've made that mistake before by installing an ar3910x racing plug in me stove compression minibike. The bike wouldn't rev up past around 4k maybe 4500.

Yeah, the plug and the white smoke are telling me it's oil. Unless it starts mosquito fogging, like my minibike used to, I wouldn't worry if it's oil. But if the tune is off, I'd adjust the carb.

Dang, Thanks dude, I don't think I could do that in a million years (I'm not good with computers). How long did that take.

So pretty much that with a truck body, all in maybe 5/8 to 3/4 scale.
