Hey guys got the trailer finished. Taken the winder out a few more times and made the gear linkage even better. Got some mirrors off ebay for her. Getting another chain and sprocket for her. Christmas time take her to a mates property and wind it out and see how fast she goes. Need more room to open her up . Long dirt roads will be sweet.

Thanks Corza. She's coming along nicely. Got the motor in and the steering done today. Got to work early and got some done. Attached the little sprocket that was supplied with the torque a verter. I'll set up the peddles in the morning. I made some like I got in the sidewinder. Got an ally floor cut and drilled ready to go. Run the throttle cable and brake line and it's just about done. Got to mount the brake caliper and see what happens.
May have got carried away with the size of the motor but I'm adding some extra barwork and other bit and pieces so a bit extra power won't hurt. If got a digital tacho to go on it. Hopefully Sunday it's all go. I'll take the winder out for a run too.

Just put up the links to some YouTube videos. Check out my YouTube channel Customwinder 1.
Will have some more going up there soon. We're taking a trip up to Manar Park. It's about a four hour drive north of Brisbane . 15000 acres of awesome. Should be great. Thanks for looking.

Hi guys. The trip to Manar Park was great. Finally had enough room to really give it to the Winder. Had a gps speedo setup up on her. She hit 110 kmh. Plenty of good dirt roads and bush to drive around. The little Trax hit about 65 kmh. Gpt some 13 inch rims and rally tyres to put on the Winder for the front. Try something different. I'll whack them on this weekend.
Destroyed a stub axle pivot bush so ordered and received some new ones today. PS thanks Tony. Love ya work.
Also ordered the plan book for the X2 buggy. Another build to get underway. Can't wait to rip into it. Not sure if anyone else has built one . Really looking forward to it.

Hi guys. Installed the new stub axle pivot bushes and fitted the 13 inch wheels and tyres. She's a different beast. Steering is a lot better and more responsive. The little rally tyres work a treat. Had the last two days round at ol mates farm and it was great. The mrs is getting a lot more confident driving her Trax2 and is loving it.
Got my plans for the X2 buggy. Start getting some material together to start the chassis. Very excited and can't wait to get started. . :twisted:
