    The drivetrain is 5" or so above where it should be. I drew it wrong but it'd take a while to correct it.

    Not abandoning it, gathering parts when they're cheap or free. The big rig is gonna get rockies eventually and when that happens, the gear will come out from under it and go into a small buggy. I want two rigs eventually, a small light single seater and a bigass 3 or 4 seater. I'm on my way to building the first one right now.

    K5 wasn't kept because the body was falling apart and I wasn't helping it any. If you're gonna go...go all out. :p:

    ...only this isn't hair brained. The current rig will be finished in July. Soon after I'll be acquiring a CCLB, new clutch and a rebuild. Then come the rockies, then comes this rig. ;)

    Mikey,

    Single seat is cool for competition.... but a 2 seater is waaayyy more practical for trail riding.
