I have a USLMRA built AP for sale.   It is turn key, ready to race.  I competed on it last season nationally and finished the season ranked 5th.   The engine has one season on it.  The chassis was also freshened up last year.  Just looking to down size a little.

Engine:
B&S Model 19 IC
JE Piston
ARC Rod
Precision Cam
Dual Valve Springs wt Billet Retainers
ARC Flywheel

I don't have to sell it so please serious inquiries only.  I plan on racing in Carlisle in June, so it can be delivered there.  Price: $1,750

Thanks for the quick reply George.   For an FXS, would you recommend using gear oil or something lighter?

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Arkansas Lawn Mower Racing Association did an episode on Lucas Oil's MAVTV show "The Motorhead Traveler" back in December.  I'm sure there will be re-runs of it on sometime.  I thought it had some great coverage of the sport.

Merry Christmas to all from the Arkansas Lawn Mower Racing Association!

Hey Chris, I've already gotten started workin on mine.  I'm rebuilding my HIP this winter!  Can't wait to try it out.  Should be ready to go by Christmas.  Then, hopefully gonna build a FXS and turn the CP into a GP.
13  General / Coffee Shop / Re: Prayers for fellow racer! on: September 28, 2013, 10:19:04 PM
First off, I'd like to give a huge "Thank You" for all the many thoughts and prayers!  Also, thanks to Tony for keeping my heymow.com friends up to date on my situation.  As far as my condition, I shoved my femur ball through my pelvic socket requiring 5.5 hours of surgery, 12 screws, & 3 steel plates to get me all patched up.  I'm home now and have been able to move around the house using crutches or a walker. Absolutely no weight on my right leg for 12 weeks. All in all, I'm pretty comfortable.  I have an awesome wife and family helping take care of me.  As far as my job, fortunately I'm a high-school shop teacher and have over 120 sick days built up.  Planning to try to go back to work ASAP.  I can do a lot of what I teach out of a wheel chair.  I would like to tell heymow how awesome the ARLMRA members are. Before I made it home from my hospital stay, my fellow member had already built me a wheel chair ramp and mowed and weed-eated my yard.  I can't thank them enough for all they've done.  Last, as far as my racing career, I'm not out yet.  Just gonna have to take a break to get good and healed first.  Thanks again everyone!

I hate to say it, but the possible USLMRA race has been put on the back burner for this year.  I'm gonna start working on sponsors for this time next year though.  I sure was hoping to get us another race in the south but just couldn't get the sponsors this year.  Sorry to disappoint.  See ya'll in Iowa.

Hey guys, just wanted to give ya'll an update on the possible national race in Arkansas.  It's not looking to positive.  We've had some problems getting sponsors.  I still have one bite on a major sponsor that may pick up the whole check but we're having to go through the proper channels and it's taking longer than expected.  If I do not have any word before to long, it'll be a "no go."  I don't want to rush things and host a poorly prepared race. But, there is always next season.
