Raise your horns if you love metal.
spudgunning is like sex, once you've tasted, you can't wait til next time.

if you do that you are better off starting from scratch, you need either two engines or a drop down gear axle so it can turn.


Just one engine needed, look here to learn how to build a model tank:

Back on topic here...I was thinking about just adding some pillow blocks under the existing axle and just put the old sprocket on the new axle.Then I would cut the old parts that are sticking out and connect the chain. What do you guys think?

Here is a good place to check out go cart parts. They sell blank sprockets for home builds.
