About time to turn the first sod on this project- it will be a long one with large gaps between updates , so dont get too excited. No physical progress on body as yet but a bit on what is the biggest problem to overcome-- for me anyway---and thats the transaxle. Im afraid I just could not be satisfied with any of the high $$$$ options out there, so------ this is what I have in mind, still lots of sanding & glueing etc to go yet before I can make the castings, but I have its back broken -so to speak! Hopefully this will withstand all the Torque & HP I have available to throw at it, & if it does break it wont cost me two arms & legs to fix!!
