If you haven't done so already, I'd download the newest copy of the USLMRA rule book and read through the build requirements for the CP class.  As far as aftermarket parts, I'd start with an aluminum flywheel, billet connecting rod, balanced crank, camshaft and billet retainers for the springs.  That should give you a great start.  Just like Chris said, you can go as fast as your wallet will allow.  Hope this helps.

Welcome to the site!  There's a wealth of knowledge on the site and plenty of members waiting to answer any questions.  Where are you located in NE Arknasas?  I'm from NE Arkansas.

Hey Jason, did they let you keep that one from your hip surgery?

I wish it was!  That hospital bed was super fancy. I could control the TV with it & it came with a help button!

I use an old hospital bed.  Works awesome.  Plug it in and adjust height by pushing a button.

Timing is the major key to keeping the crank in one piece.  Like Paul said, use a degree wheel.  Never exceed 30 degrees.

That's the correct hub.

From experience, never trust the timing marks.  I've had  B&S cranks be off on timing.  Always put a light on it.  Also, what flywheel hub are you using?  AVS or Non-AVS?  Definite difference in timing.

I agree with what Paul is saying.  Just trying to explain what's going on inside of the engine.  I run a very well built 31 OHV and all I run is regular 89 octane pump fuel.  All I have ever ran is a B&S nut style crank.  I agree that timing is the most important thing to look at.

The higher the compression, the more of a risk of pre-detonation running lower octane.  This is what causes broken cranks.  Premature detonation.  There are no benefits to running high octane in lower compression engines.  The higher octane fuels are designed to keep spontaneous combustion from occurring.

Thanks for the quick reply George.   For an FXS, would you recommend using gear oil or something lighter?
11  Mower Building / Setup Help / Driveline / RAGB Lubricant Level on: March 20, 2014, 09:36:46 PM
Looking for some RAGB info.  I've searched and found the types of lubricants that racers are using in their RAGB but haven't found the amount to put in the RAGB.  What's the rule-of-thumb on these?  Cover the bottom pinion gear or fill up to the bottom of the output shaft?  Any info would be greatly appreciated. 
12  General / Coffee Shop / Re: Ap vs sp on: March 07, 2014, 10:22:51 PM
The FXS & FXT are what the scales are for.  No minimum weight for prepared classes in the USLMRA.  Just have to be built by the build requirements.

That's awesome!  Another national race in the south.  I'm sure we'll have a group from the ARLMRA attending.
14  General / Coffee Shop / Re: More mower racing on TV!!! on: January 14, 2014, 09:26:04 PM
That's not the episode that has mower racing.  The show made multiple stops in Arkansas.  The episode that has mower racing also covered the Arkansas Delta region.  I emailed the host but haven't heard back from him.  I'll give him a call tomorrow to see if they will re-air the show.
15  General / Coffee Shop / Re: More mower racing on TV!!! on: January 12, 2014, 10:23:17 PM
I'll make some calls and see if they will have any re-runs of the show or if they will post it on YouTube.
