had it out a few times so far this season. I am getting used to it. figuring out which gear to use, how much throttle etc. it is doing well. a little unloading in the front, Bluerocket suggested a limiting strap in the center. we will see. I'll keep wheeling  and learning it. oh yea, the radiator has a small leak, gotta pull it out and fix it. very happy though!

Weld a d-ring tab to the axle and use your winch.  Simpler and can be used to suck the front down and gain traction or balance.
