    Here is my tractor I built from the ground up, all custom made by me. I have a radar gun and i have clocked it at 58mph. It’s got a Honda 200cc (5hp) (5 speed with hi-low) three-wheeler motor. It has hydraulic brakes and led lights. I have had it since I was 8 years old and I have made many versions over the years. The pics are of when i first got it and the latest edition. Im building up a 200cc (11hp)engine for it next. Im lookin for 65mph.I know it’s a bit odd but it kept me out of trouble when I was a kid, well kind of.


    Here is a video and some pics

    It drives straight and true at top speed. I made the spindles so when you let go of the steering wheel the weight of the tractor makes it go straight. I have drifted all day with it and not lifted a tire. Also the fact that it sits 1.5” off the ground makes it very safe. So it is safe!

    if you have a tractor that can do 60mph, and your g/f does too..... you might be a redneck.

    lol


    take a vid in action :)

    Right off the bat, the was the first thing I was thinking when I saw the pics. "That chain is long, if it ever breaks, its going to be violent to whatever is around it."

    Edit:
    After posting in this thread, I realized that when you get older, you no longer thing about how cool something is. When I was 15 and saw something like this I would be all like "F yeah man! That's awesome!!" Now that I'm older the only thing I can think of is "how can this take my testicles out now?"
