Chassis / JD STX38 - Steering question - Light front end
« on: July 23, 2013, 10:16:13 AM »
hoping someone can help me with an issue I am having

I run a JDSTX38 and right now I am having major troubles with cornering.  I have tried different angles, TOE out setups and i push thru the corners.  I have a sharp entering the corner but then once I grab the throttle it pushes out until i hit the rough edges and then grabs strong.

I am going to try some different wheels up front but just feels like I am pushing thru the corners.

Side note i will pull wheelies out of the corners too.

Can I add weight up front to help this?

oldiron, I live in Glyndon, MN and I run a John Deere STX38.

We race at family owned tracks, have about 10 mowers that regularly show up to our events.

I can send you some pics and information if you need

I used to get my throttles thru Acme Mowersports, but the site is no longer.

Can someone direct me to another place I can order them thru, starting 2 new builds and trying to get all parts ordered?

will a 16x7.5x8 run on a 8x8 tire? it may be a dumb question, but those are the only ones I am finding.  otherwise need some new rear rims also.

i could maybe put a 7 in pulley on, but it would be close.

I will check out the speed calc, i actually think I have a set of 16's on my spare transaxle.  I will have to check it out tonight.

I ran in a race last weekend and i just dont think I have the right setup yet.  I have a JD STX38, 12.5hp, running 6 in on Engine, 4 in on 700, 12 sprocket on trans and 46 on axle, I had pretty good distance speed, but lacking acceleration.  Thinking of jumping to a 14 sprocket on trans? 

any help would be appreciated, thx

i followed the acmemotorsports Direct Steering and now having some problems.

for one it is pretty tough steering.  I have a John Deere STX38. I attached pics any help would be appreciated.

Turns really well to the Right, actually over turns, and doesnt want to turn to the left much at all.  Plus it is just tough steering.
