Pretty much. I thought I had 6:1 but actually have 12:1

At 6:1 with about 30 hp it would be very much like the old Ural experience. As it is I am bouncing off the rev limiter to get 35mph. Sounds like I am ripping up the pavement blasting through my custom Briggs and Stratton exhaust system! I need to find someone who can cut some new gears for the dif or I have to find another axle and start over.
