Nice job on the conversion Richard. It looks like it came from the factory that way.

Thanks, Kevin
I can't take credit for the engineering though. I actually bought part of a kit offered by Farr-offroad. It's a company in Canada that has complete kits for the conversion for the Pilot and the FL350.

raced an FTZ FL350 w/ NOS set up like a mini sprint for 12 yrs and seen just about every creation under the sun, most never worked well (sled motors, streetbike motors, etc) except the cr500 topend, that guy gave me a run.. but that set up even LOOKS like it'd work, haha. Very cool!!

Here are a couple of videos after I first got it completed. I'll post more videos of my first trip with it to Sand Lake later.

One of the videos of the first trip after the conversion. My wife shot the video with our GoPro from her Banshee.

Awesome!! Man, that sure puts the originals to shame. Pretty sure I can say I'm glad you never showed up with that, haha... You would clean house if you flat tracked that thing. Best conversion Ive seen anyone do yet
