This is a fun vehicle. Just wish I had a lower gear. It goes fast, but I wish it had slow climbing power. It has plenty of horsepower to climb as long as you have the speed up before you start. I can't go smaller sprocket on motor or larger on axle. Would like to figure out a belt drive reduction. But can do it with chains too. Thinking of motor cycle transmission, but haven't found one to play with yet. Any suggestions???
