If the clutch has loose tolerance on the shaft, it can break or back out the bolt.

We do not do offroad mowers, a predator 212 is not a common motor used in mower racing.
Things are slow right now, and the mass of members are not around to answer questions.
Do a search on 212 and see what you come up with. Maybe you could send a message to one
of the members who use them in one of the few clubs that may use that motor.
Go-karts use this motor as well as some mini bikes guys. You may want to try one of those sites
to help dial in your setup.

Question: where is a good place to buy parts?
I looked at bmikarts for parts of the axle and 2 wheels but shipping alone will send me back 150 dollars.
A good shop somewhere in the e.u. would probably save me some extra money

The E.U. all buy from the US what they can't make. Shipping will always be the highest cost.

A whole month and 118 different views and nobody and nothing. Not even somebody getting mad at me for it not being a lawnmower project

Thanks for nothing

I been moving and had no internet for a month, too hard to scold someone on a cell phone...
Now that I got internet back....  :ninja: :ninja: :bday:

New to forum, new to wanting to mower race.  I'm perusing through Craigslist and there are many affordable mower candidates, but I don't know where to start.  For starters, I want to participate in the local fairground's mower race this year and need to start building a racing mower.  Fabrication is not a problem, I just need a base to start with.  What is the most common size mower motor for Joe-adult wanting to get into the sport?  I have no aspirations of making it to the NASCAR of mower racing, me and the boys just want to have some fun and some beers.  Thx.

What does the engine rule state you can run?

Could be a weak starter(there is a test for that), weak battery(detectable with a load test), or loose lash on valves as well. Rule those out first.

Hey Phil,

Welcome to the site. As for grass cutters, no modifying at all, if you
need more power, put a bigger stock engine on there. Not to be a
gig harsher, but safety is paramount, and we do not promote the
modification of the grass cutters.

Happy New Year to ALL!!

Some have started racing the new season from Labor Day, and others from their finals.
Some will be adding up points in winter series, and others yet
to start til the spring. Don't forget those crazy nuts ice racing,(because they can) in the
frozen north. It's all racing, a new time for making fun, new friends, forgetting the
bad parts of the last year, and making up for some of it.... hey, do it, even if it wasn't
your fault. Start anew, Go for it, have some fun, making history, be nostalgic, make mow

Thanks for being,
