Coming together very nicely. Can't wait to see the end result. Great work.

This was last weekend in my back yard. It's snowing hard today but unfortunately we got a bunch of wind this week so it's doubtful if we can get out wheeling. Between the snowmobiles and the drifts I think we're already done for the season until spring. We went from nothing to a whole bunch in one fell swoop!

Looking great! For gears, I feel pretty strongly about gearing to the desired cruising rpm. I prefer Dana/spicer. I've picked up used gear sets the last two times. I prefer used OEM over some of the questionable brands out there these days.

Thanks!
I'm sure I will regret going with the G2 brand gears, but its a balance between time before I can drive this thing vs budget.
Trying to make high quality parts where I can and buy slightly less expensive parts. We'll see. Just want to drive the thing before I sell or kids come. :idea:

I used the gear calculator again and came up with at ~2200 rpm I can do 60 mph, with 4.56 gears

might be the best choice.

Trying hard to get to a roller with driveline installed by summer.
