i mean its badass by any measure, but going through the trouble of an offset rear with a centered front seems like too much hassle for pedal clearance...

You may be right.  Biggest thing is what the cage will look like.  It'll be nice to keep the front end low.  But, it'd also be nice to use your old H233 for the rear.

speaking of which, even if you dont use it on this project, come get it, i would hate to see it go to waste.


also i fixed my springs, I just threw the extra springs under a 52" pack under my stock upper leaf and it flattened it out and stiffened everything up.

If you guys need a middle man I can pick it up at Zachs in SD.  I'll be seeing Kenny in a couple weeks and can deliver it.

Yup.  I wanted to do a 9" with 60 outers, but Zach was kind enough to donate his old axle.  Since I have the Waggy outers already I figure this would be worth a try.

I hope it does work out.  I was thinking about the exact same thing last week and now you have made it real.  Very cool.

Just noticed the now front pumpkin is upside down.  Is that going to cause any oil starvation problems on the pinion/bearings?  I can't remember if there's a slinger in there.

I need to research some more on what mods to do for pinion oiling.  I'm not even sure if the rear engine KOH buggies run flipped axles or reversed rotation motors?
