they will take a lot. my old green one ran a 2332 with the old geared hub setup. the  thing was like a Billy goat. if you had traction it would go up it. back when Dan lived in garden city we all had one I thank at one time we had 10 of them running the river. it was a cool sight to see.

Thing runs quite well for not being turbo'd,drives very well also! I really,really appreciated him loaning it to me @ St.A. last year. The headlights left a lot to be desired though. I think the candle burned out. ;D ;D

When I was in California. I completely rebuilt the front beam and put a bus tranny in it with a super diff. Put the rear shocks up through the car to the roll cage. Disc brakes. 20 years of running sand and desert the front end was shot.
