    I don't know, won't own one. I need a mower with a steering wheel so i can drink beer while mowing.

    There was a guy on Pirate that built a hydro drive buggy. It had a large cooler, but it was also running an LS motor. He used and airbag for the hydraulic reservoir so that it would handle expansion and not have any air in the system. Helpful for when it's on it's side I guess.

    Most of the pics are gone.

    Beer holders. Thanks bdkw1. i almost forgot them. Wait..... I meant juice cup holders for the kids. Hmm, LS motor would be awesome, but might be too big. I have an r1 and an rc51 engine in the garage now, so those might be next.

    I had to turn down the serpentine pulley to a v belt on my lathe. Charges at 14.5 volts even at idle. Should be plenty to keep the battery charged and run lights, winch, etc. The crx uses a four wire plug. Only the red wire is used for this application. The other three are for charge light, ecu, and load sensor.

    A few more pics to show the driveline as promised. The single shift/motion lever controls the direction forwards and reverse, as well as the speed.

    Neat! So technically, you could control the front and rear independently to do front digs.

    That is really one of the coolest buggies i’ve seen come up. I can’t wait to see videos of it running.
