I don't think I missed it, how did the test drive go?

 

I just got the carburetor back yesterday, the friend I had soaking it for me was slow, but It's not his fault because he owns a hardware store and his job isn't carburetor repair.

 

I got it put together yesterday and it was running pretty good.
I backed the gt up about 10ft and then pulled it back forward. The tracks are still snagging here and there. So there is still some more work to do, I'll try to get it driving a little better then I'll post a video of it.

It might be a little late to do this big of a re-work but I have a hunch you'll have issues with the front rollers/wheels. Hopefully I'm wrong but they look way small to me, your tracks kind of come to a point in the front and it appears that may cause you issues. Like I said, might be a little late on this and hopefully I'm wrong but it's something to consider.

I worried about the same thing but those where the only sprockets I had.

I don't think it's going to be much of a issue, everything seemed to work on my test drive, but I don't know how well it's going to do climbing over stuff.

I'll try and get more work done on it this week, it's been cold so I haven't been doing much with it.

I haven't had time to do anything to it, I would like to hurry and get it finished since it is so close to working.

I'll post in when I get some time.

Thanks for asking
