I also like the idea of more control panel gauges, like engine temp, oil pressure, fuel level, etc. Also like the flip up deck idea, so it can go completely vertical, this makes blade changes and scraping so easy! Please do not use the TED brakes! ZTRs do not need a brake system, it is hydro controlled, so why put brakes on it?
in Tedd's profile - you can find treads, started by Tedd - this would answer a lot of questions "why?" - this been discussed, a lot of info
