    even if you don't counter sink the holes you don't need to use a bolt to act a caster, HDPE is slippy enough plus if you look at all other modern flippers they just run with the wedge planing the the floor. as look if you plenty of ground clearance everywhere else you should be able to drive around fine.

    Ah really, that's interesting. I read lots of comments about the uneven floors, I thought it best to keep the chassis off it.

    In that case it's mighty tempting to put a strip of 10mm hardox along the front. Hmm

    That is very true the floor is like a mountain range in places vut most people just power straight over, wheelie over, gyro over or find a smoother part
