No more foot slipping off the pedals!

Was plowing today and got tired of my boots slipping off the pedals. When running the trails in Wisc, same thing happens and the damn Prowler just nose dives. So I tapped out the holes to 1/4" and ran some SS 1/4X1 cap bolts and backed them up with lock nuts. Works good. No more slippage with wet boots or tenny runners.

I may have to try something like that, never really had a problem with the brake (don't use it much ) but I do slip of the gas a lot.

A guy took a video of me coming up out of the woods yesterday and you can hear a whining noise over the engine, I wonder if it's my one way bearing. I'll try to upload it.
