Wait, I thought that was "The Chicks" car Can somebody please ask Scottyb for his take? Rifter, what did Tom really say?

Thanks, I would think thats what Jeff needs. Wait...Ez-slow? I remember him posting he doesn't need to do wheelies. It's built to be a acerage car. That's how they all started! I think your pix's helped alot, now if Scottyb would post, with your expertise and Toms input and my worthless dribble..Jeff should be set!

Just noticed that, thanks for bring that up, if I have alot of side space in the Primary I'll try a wider belt, I have a BUNCH of belts from the trial and ERROR method.

I have the stock 36 degree ezgo in my workhorse. It has a 720 twin with a 1190 comet on the motor, the 1190 locks up hard and the Robbin 27 pulls hard with the stock 15:1 gears... It will spin the 25x12x10 dirt devils. Hope this helps, it is just a combination I fell upon. I know Tom has better drive clutches than my old Comet but the Ezgo driven is hard to beat. Remember the ramps come in 28 and 36 degrees. I think you want the 36 with all that power. Looks like you will have a nice set up, now be nice and tell us what Tom said about the intake noise

Tom said use the Stock air box like he sells on his Big Block kits. You can spin 25's, that's really good. I may trade out this Ymaha driven for an EZGO driven that I have, Dave don't like it and you say use the EZGO, can't beat advise like that

Sounds like a great plan Jeff, and it only takes a minute to swap them. I would think the widest belt and of the right length that would still alow the car to idle would be the best. Thanks for your input Scotty, I still think the 1190 was better them the 780, but you have to go with the crank shaft size you got. Keep us posted Jeff.

I bought mine on Ebay and it was for a 1-7/16 shaft... of course we had a 1-1/8shaft on the Robin twin so we made a sleeve to fit.
Cheap fix!
On the Ezgo Rear clutch... if you get a used one assume you will need a new helix (the cluster with the ramps). Nobody ever services these things and they continue to 'work' long after they are technically destroyed.
