If you just want to limit speed then maybe an RPM limiter?

I realize a smaller clutch diameter would slow things down. anyone do this? splitting the case and installing lower gearing will do it to but I don't want to do that.

Smaller clutch is not an option. Change the secondary spring and the primary weights. Best bet is to call Todd at hunterworks a vendor on here, he won't lead you wrong.

The answer for lower gears is portals, that is the only way to get lower gearing.

Thanks for the kudos on me too!!

DURN, I knew I was forgetting something, but my old timers kicked in and memory went blank.


Who makes portals for a Rhino?

I can vouch for that, Brian's 20 years younger than me, but after flowing me around for 4 years he's starting to drive in a sane fashion....

I could probably put 32.5 Outlaws on with portals.


I think I am halfway between the two of you in age, so I don't need portals ..... I can spend the money on my doctor bills and meds.

No, because the gears are offset, but I bet it is only about 4 inches.
I would like to see if they could be modified and twisted 45 degrees so they lift 2" and move forward and rearward 2" (or whatever it comes to)

I was thinking like a small planetary gear on the driveline. I have seen small gearboxes for pickups for towing that work on the driveshaft.
