It looks and sounds cool but I am with Jenny.  I am not sure that you could call it a mower lol.  Looks fast and I bet its a blast.

Most people here do circle track racing.
But there is the orange mower up this way with 2 Vanguards that would give ya a good run.

Look,
I don't want to ruffle any feathers,
There is no circle track racing around here.
If the "ORANGE" twin vangaurd can get it done...thats great..
I thought a forum was for sharing info..Not bashing.
I have never seen a kohler putting out this kind of hp???
So if you want to slam a newbee.....have at it!!!!!
If you want to race PM me, This is crazy.....

I raced an arena mower race in Bulverde last fall, and there was a spring race there too.
Ain't nobody bashing, you called folks out to see who had the times. I just said I
knew of a mower who would give you a run for your money.

Hi Texas Tbone I would like to say something because I feel I started the whole mess. I WAS NOT BASHING YOU, your mower OR ANYTHING TO THAT EFFECT. I was just stating my opinon,which to me seemed like you expected or you wouldn't have posted it.  I have drag raced mowers for 2 of the 3 years I have been into mower  racing. I will say that I have learned quiet a bit.BUT that is because i have taken the critiques of others to improve me self not work myself into a hissy fit. Its not necessarily about what you have in your mower or the speeds you get out of it. ITs the fact that you had fun while your racing  it  and you were safe. And personally as far as times and what not I'm from Seymour about 6 hours from you and some of my fellow racemates in Seymour were just invited to race at an episodes of pink (I WAS ALSO INVITED BUT OTHER PRIORITES TOOK FIRST IN MY BOOK), with some other texas mower racers a couple of weekends ago and their mower engines were beating Drag mowers as you called them with motorcycle engines on them. But I won't go there.

HAVE A GREAT DAY:
Jenny Wade

Think we got off on the wrong foot here.  I love the thing.  Like I said I think it would be fun to race.  I have always loved drag racing also.  As for the times thing, I don't drag my mower.  It's not setup for it and you would kill me with that centrifigul.  SO anyhow, sorry if you took me the wrong way.  I was just stating an opinion also and was'nt bashing you.
