Newbie from east coast Canada.
« on: January 03, 2016, 01:22:11 PM »
 Hi all, I'm from Price Edward Island. A tiny island on Canada's east coast. Some friends and I started a small "just for fun" mower racing club, and this will be our second year. Right now we have a few different classes, and some general build guidelines, nothing to strict,  just basic safety rules, and a few rules to keep everyone more or less even. This year we are adding a Super Modified class, which includes build engines etc. We're all pretty new to the internals of mower engines and the aftermarket parts needed, so I came here hoping for a bit of help in getting started.
 I think the biggest hurdle is going to be keeping a reasonable budget, as the US / Canada exchange is pretty brutal, so for every US Dollar a part is, with all the exchange, duty, shipping, tax etc, it's about $2 Canadian! and pretty much nothing is available up here unfortunately.

Hope to learn a bunch from you guys!

If you add a super mod class use the rules from the uslmra or amra this way if you want to travel your stuff will be legal pretty much anywhere..

Is there someone in Canada that sells aftermarket engine parts like flywheels, rods etc?
