    Extending axle or wheel spacers

    Default
    Hey, my buggy has an old rear axle setup from a john deere trike, with the wheels on the total width is 1000mm i want it to be 1200mm overall. I wasnt sure to extend the axle by cutting it and adding 100mm each side or to make 100mm wheel spacers? Its only got a 250gsx engine in it so not heaps of power. Im leaning towards the wheel spacers just because its easier!

    Is it better to make one with long bolts that replace the original studs or one with two flanges and a tube inbetween?
