Arctic Cat - 12v, 17T, 13" x 5" tires
I picked up a green arctic cat in good shape a couple months back. It is lighter and smaller than a gator, but the kids really do love it. My son has the strangest habit of opening and closing the tailgate anytime he puts something in or takes it out. It can be a baseball, a stick, or matchbox cars, doesn't matter.
I have it stored in the shed for cleaning and flipping, or perhaps mods, such as 4x4. When we get a larger group of kids over, and everyone needs their own BPRO to drive, I inevidibly bring out the arctic cat, and that's what all the kids want to drive. Imagine a gator ws with working electric bed lift, a lightning mcqueen, and a silver gaucho sitting idle while five kids fight over the arctic cat (probably mostly because they don't see it much).
Our BPROs only drive in the short-cut grass, which gets pretty sloppy this time of year. The arctic cat wheels are a little small, but the tread pattern lends itself to good traction. The tires are 13" diameter, 5" wide, which makes it easy to match sizes with rubber tires. I have ordered some but not received them yet. I will post pics when I get things together.
I'm really wanting to throw 19T GB on all four wheels and make it 4X4, but I should probably wet my whistle on some smaller mod projects first...
