Latest video:
This episode brings you installing of the Rotek V-twin 20 HP engine, fabricating a driveshaft, trying out different seats for the pilot of this tracked vehicle, supporting the clutch shaft with a pillow block bearing. After filling the gearbox and the differential with oil again and connecting the battery I start this beast up and try out all the gears and see how the CVT and the rest of the driveline actually works. See it for yourself and watch the video! Cheers!

Love your videos. Watched the majority of them so far and appreciate your ideas and skills. I'm also impressed with your video skills. I understand that English is a second language for you. Regarding English, I wanted to tell you about "dampers' and "dampeners". A "damper" is usually a small plate or baffle that is used to restrict airflow, like on the front of a stove or in a chimney pipe. A "dampener" is a device that absorbs or lessens vibrations.

@16:35 I don't think those couplers will last long, becuase they work on an angle all the time, and this makes the bearning mechanism inside it wear so quicly. Usually couplers are designed to be straight most of the time while the vehicle is in its ideal mode (weight and speed)

the drive shaft is fine, but i would put it in a 100mm steel pipe and 2 , 50mm wide x 6mm thick flat bar straps over it to protect you should anything break, it be like a bat that's flailing wildly.

I've replaced two-piece tail shafts with homemade single piece ones a couple of times now. I think they must have to be pretty badly out of balance to get vibration problems.

Hard mount the engine and trans together then, put that on rubber. That will make it so you can also have an effective input shaft brake on the trans.

Well done, the only issue I see is your axle those U-joints are on to much of an angle for u-joints to be affective you want that line as strait as possible. The fix slide the axle to the rear until the shaft is strait, the little up down line is not as much an issue as the two angles were. Hope this helps. That driveshaft should be a straight line if not it will fail at its weakest link. Fix is move axel so dif is in line with shaft. I hope you are caging the shaft. I also notice you are setting this up as a tracked vehicle yet I do not see any way to adjust the tension on the tracks which you will have to do.

I love your build but there is ONE thing that makes my skin crawl.... When you drill a hole in a tube and that hole is for suporting somthing that will take some force.. ALWAYS make a sleeve. make the hole bigge so the sleeve fits, weld it in place... tupes collaps if you donät put the sleeve in them...

Not only do I support replacing the couplings, I also suggest that you weld up the rear differential and convert it into a posi track rear end.

The engine appears to be moving on the rubber mounts you made, eliminate them and that will eliminate the "flex". The drive shaft will not need balancing at the speeds you will be going.

Привет. Так как я тоже делаю такие вездеходы, хотел поделиться. Резиновая муфта которая идет от заднего кардана, она развалиться через парку километров, так как привод который идет на шрус к кпп, угол излома этой резинки большой, а его не должно быть. С редуктора на задние колеса на кардане тоже угол слишком большой,так как это сочленение не равных угловых скоростей, и при маленькой скорости при повороте, будет двигаться рывками. Я не знаю понимаете вы меня то что пишу или нет, но лучше это сразу исправить. чем потом все крашеное переделывать.

It’s a beauty! Very very good! I think the rear axel will be required to be a positive traction. It appears the right side is not turning the same speed as the left! On the screen it looks as if the motors drive is not alined with the centrifugal mechanism! BUT LENSES DO THAT SO IT MAYBE A CHROMATIC ABERRATION! Your rear axel is going to eat Universal joints!

Это не будет работать нормально,бешеные механические потери,вибрации и рывки прикончат эту трансмиссию очень быстро. Радиус поворота будет просто чудовищный из-за использования одиночного дифференциала. Если используешь автомобильный редуктор в качестве ГП иди до конца,глуши дифф и используй схему с бортовыми фрикционами.
