The Piglet project is stalled at the moment. I need to hook up the rear brakes and fab some body work for it, but haven't goten around to it. It actually rides quite well, but I made an error calculating the ratio of the rear dif and it tops out at 35 mph WFO in high gear even with the monster truck tires on it, so I need to figure out something there, too....

If it only goes 35 mph, who needs brakes? It would be like the early Ural experience: not much speed and brakes that work like ten speed bicycle brakes.

Pretty much. I thought I had 6:1 but actually have 12:1

At 6:1 with about 30 hp it would be very much like the old Ural experience. As it is I am bouncing off the rev limiter to get 35mph. Sounds like I am ripping up the pavement blasting through my custom Briggs and Stratton exhaust system! I need to find someone who can cut some new gears for the dif or I have to find another axle and start over.

This is an oldie but a goodie. We used the assend of a Suz TM100, welded up the hack using black pipe, bolted it to a Yam RT-1 360 with heim joints to adjust the toe-in, lean, etc. Raced NETRA sidehack enduros, back when they had such things. Even placed 2nd, once - out of a field of 8 hacks....I still pull it out once in a while.

I know it's not really a hack, but I couldn't think of any place else to post it.

AFAIK the front end is connected to the transmission in the rear that splits power to the two sets of tracks. Muscle the front end to do a left turn and the right track receives more power than the left track, turning the whole thing left.
