Steering column looks to have been extended with a universal joint added with no support [seals and bearing wear?] How do you get on it? No room between steering wheel and right finder. Must be for a very slim, athletic person. Seat is pushed way back over center line of rear axle, rear wheels. I would not like to sit that far back, front end light enough. Didn't see any wheel weights. Don't see how you could safely use it to work. And as Jim pointed out you can only go straight or to the right. Kinda Limits what you can do with it. Won't work at any NASCAR track, they turn left.

Come on guys! Cut the man some slack here! This is a form of art and I think its kinda cool. I agree its not too practical, but if you want something different for a parade machine then this one is a real attention getter! Plus the man obviously has some skills to put this together! I say kudos! To each his own

Is that a straight exhaust or is there a turbocharger hidden up under that hood to quiet it down when pulling hard?

I don't get the customization of the tractor. I have never liked customization of most things and in particular vehicles. That's just one persons opinion. (Mine) It certainly doesn't mean I'm right just that I have a preference. Everyone else also has a preference and just as valuable as mine. It is his tractor and he gets to do with it as he wishes. "I" just don't get it. I read this forum every night not to comment on things but to learn. And learn I do. I learn what a great bunch of people there are in this world no mater what you see on the boob tube. I learn that there are people out there that just want to help. I learned that not just guys own and work on tractors, I still feel bad about calling Dale Finch," Mr." I learned from Jim Becker's post that the steering had a problem, I thought "how'd I miss that." That's something that could have cost me or some one else money on their next cub purchase. So I looked for every thing else that could be a problem. Practicing for the next cub I find. And I think I found some. I think these little tractors are beautiful in there simplicity, they are easy to work on which I love, they as all vehicles are a "bear" to diagnose at times, but when you figure it out or someone on here sends you in the right direction. What a great feeling of accomplishment. And yes I like to return the favor. My son once Quipped "you think you're so smart." He was 26 years old. I replied, "No I've just been stupid longer than you." I'm 67 years old. When your born your brain is empty you have to be taught everything. Teach me.
