Ryan would have ran out of gear before the 1/8 mile so it wouldn't really prove anything... just would kill a good clutch...

I have seen some of these drag racing mower on youtube...... those guys are nuts...

George, thats probably why we haven't tore anything up yet.  We don't have clutches.  When we launch, were at idle.  We hit 1-2-3 pretty quickly, then 4 & 5 in a 150 feet.  But, the adrinelin starts flowing when you have to shut the thing down in 150 feet!  Now thats when it get's exciting!

We would have changed the gear ratio,I know that it would have been at 10,000 rpm in about four hundred feet with the gear ratio it had

the tractor pullers have their place to post on here, how about one for the drag racers, would be interesting to see some of their ideas and pictures of mowchines!! ;)

For there to be any consideration with having a Drag Racing section,
two things have to happen.

The first one is, there has to be well enough interest to have one.
The other is, there has to be someone considered an expert in this
type of racing to give advice and direction.

again no expert here but you can get the basic idea from the web site above. With the addition of lots of safety. I posted it to be a general idea. They do several races a year and several people come to watch. Again just a idea.
