anyone know how to get more out of a hydro-gear hydrostatic transaxle? just picked up a wheelhorse w/ a hydro for my wife. wanting to get a little more speed out of it (stock is only about 5-10mph) also, how does the brakes work on a hydro? are on-axle still required since neutral stops coasting?

btw neutral will hold it stopped on a 30 deg incline (truck bed ramps)

Best thing to so is pull the hydro out and sell it. You can't change the ratio on a hydro because you'll burn it up. If I were you, I'll pull & sell the hydro, and with the $$ you make off that you can more than likely buy a Peerless 700, live axle, and everything else you could need.
