The problem isn't the front bumpers, and never has been. The problem is the drivers who use them to make a pass and/or track officials who don't use the black flag like they should. It doesn't matter if it's a buddy, a family member, or even a staff member. If someone drives out of line put them out of the race. No excuses or warnings.  That being said, the super mod mowers are fast, and there is always going to be some contact. That's just part of racing. Accidents are going to happen. The front bumpers help protect the hood and critical front end components, as well as keep down tire contact from the rear bumpers that could send a machine airborne.

At the end of the day there is nothing stopping you from tacking some murry frame rails to a kart frame and calling it a lawn mower.  In my opinion killing lawn mower racing.

It's no worse than guys building their own frames from scratch using square tubing and not using a mower frame at all. And most kart chassis' are designed around a rear mounted engine and built to have a certain amount of flex. Taking a good handling kart chassis and completely changing it to work as a mower frame would defeat the purpose of even using it. Better to just take the parts off and build one.

You can use the vertical crankshaft in a horizontal. The output shaft will just be a little longer than it would be if using the horizontal crank. The side cover on the horizontal is thinner than the vertical pan.

9  Engine Help / Kohler Engines / Re: How much can I up the compression on a stock CV490s on: July 11, 2015, 04:43:43 PM
Ok so I asked.  Our rules are all over the place.  They said when it comes down to it, you can do anything you want to the motor other than add aluminum parts.

Take that part number Paul gave you and go to Equipatron's website or give them a call. Very good prices and awesome service.
11  General / Coffee Shop / Re: Fuel question on: June 25, 2015, 03:19:12 PM
As longs as it is pump gas and available for anyone to purchase, you can use it. Some local clubs have their own set of rules and don't even allow race fuel, while others will allow you to run methanol.
12  General / Coffee Shop / Re: Fuel question on: June 25, 2015, 02:55:40 AM
Since you mentioned the FXT class, i assume you are talking about the USLMRA. If you will read the entire rule book, it very clearly states the rules on fuel under general mower requirements (which apply to all classes).


"The only acceptable fuel is pump gasoline. Fuel must be pumped fuel bought at Service stations, example SUNOCO racing fuel or VP Racing Fuel sold at Marathon Service stations. Additives, other than STABIL Fuel Stabilizer are prohibited. Any apparatus other than the carburetor which can be used to introduce any gaseous or liquid substance into the induction flow, whether connected or not, is prohibited, and will result in disqualification. Such devices include, but are not limited to, Nitrous Oxide, alcohol or water injection systems, turbo or superchargers, and/or the attendant hardware consistent with these systems. Any attempt to conceal or disguise such apparatus will be considered a flagrant violation and may result in expulsion from the USLMRA."

Al, you're wrong! I do this stuff to get away from family. By the same, the Mrs. gets away from me, too!

Bert has a good point. Going to the races and getting away for a while (so family members don't hurt or kill each other) can be a good thing. But i guess that would still make mower racing a "family" sport.  lol
