It runs, it drives, it stops. Seems really smooth and quiet. My seat dino says it doesn't have as much power as the last motor but that very likely could be because it is so smooth and quiet that it just seems down on power...or maybe i got scammed and bought a 4.8

either way, it's in there and done and i'm back to wheeling . Looking to spend labor day in wind rock

Last trip out i was getting a weird noise out of the front end, finally checked into it and it turns out the lower control arm bolt broke at the axle. Luckily it broke in the dead center and when it did the bushing twisted enough to put tension on the two halves so neither fell out
