  • I had to cut the fenders a little to get clearance.
    sounds like moding a 4X4 for over size tires!

  • @Jon, what are the wheel connections to the gear motor?

    Had you thought about a universal hub?
    Shop the flea markets, you may run across wheels that have more bite.

    Though I don't think added weight will help, if you got into some soft stuff.

    But I think you need to take sand as trying to displace a lot of material at one time, and that is what gives you grip. Where other tires will dig their own hole.
  • Here's a pic of the final drive that goes out to the wheel hub, which rides in the slots.

    Thanks, if this doesn't work out I will be scrounging around for alternatives. I have high hopes. It's a beast. I don't mean to sound like a broken record, but we aren't going far anyway.

    That looks like a difficult connection to duplicate, making an adapter will be a challenge.

    Maybe if you sacrifice parts of the original wheel?

    I'm sure there are options, that fairly thick outer plastic can be anchored to.

    You just need to come up with a happy medium, between hard and soft ground.
