over the past few months ive built this race tractor its a craftsman with a 19.5 opposed twin motor and a splicer 6 speed transaxle with a 7 to 4 pulley swap its got an electric fuel pump and its gonna have direct steering in the next couple days figured id post to see what you guys think and any advice would be greatly appreciated  the rules that im working with are below:

SUPER STOCK TWIN - S/S TWIN
This class is a fast paced, competitive class aimed at both novice and experienced drivers. relatively low cost, and minimal mechanical knowledge required. Very fun and competitive class, usually the largest class.
SUPER STOCK TWIN CLASS RULES: Racers must be at least 15 years of age.
-Full face helmet is mandatory. A neck brace is highly recommended.
-HP range : 15-20hp ( This is the recommended engine HP range for this class, up to the maximum 20hp. Smaller engines are permitted.)
-Original mower type opposed twin cylinder, or OHV single cylinder engines.
- Original chassis must be used, but may be modified. Stock wheelbase must be retained.
-Engines must remain 100% stock. Absolutely no internal performance modifications allowed. Stock Carburetors only. Governor may  be removed. Exhaust and air filter may be modified. A scattershield made of 1/8 steel around the flywheel is highly recommended, in the event of a flywheel failure, this will contain it, reducing the chances of injury.
-Hand or foot throttle allowed.
-Lowering is highly recommended to increase stability, and stock steering allowed, but not recommended. Stock steering may be modified or replaced with a custom setup.
-Mowers MUST have working brakes.
-Mowers must have a proper working tether killswitch (No home made killswitches!)
-Must use an original equipment transaxle, must be belt driven. No chain drive gear boxes, or right angle boxes. NO GO KART TORQUE CONVERTERS, or CENTRIFUGAL CLUTCHES.
-MAX width is 40" at the widest point. No lengthening of stock axles or spindles. If you wish to widen axles or spindles, use 1 piece axle stock, (or Grade 8 bolts for front spindles).
-Rear bumper recommended.
- Keep levers and shifters short so as not to impose a risk to you or others in case of an upset. All sharp edges or protruding object must be removed.
- It is highly recommended to modify the axles and spindles to a more reliable means of wheel retention other than the factory C clips, ie: center drilled / tapped, or weld on studs. Absolutely no cotter pins or bent nails!
-Mower type tires only. No aggressive ATV tires.
- Fuel tank and batteries must be secured tightly. Metal All around is acceptable. No zip ties.
