9  Mower Building / Setup Help / Driveline / To the peerless 400 lovers out there on: August 17, 2014, 11:51:26 AM
Have any of you lightened the gears inside these things. I run all three of my mowers with these and there awesome . Was thinking of drilling holes to lighten the gears 30% off. Less rotating mass. But was also thinking it might cause drag with the oil hitting and going through the holes in the gear. Anyone tryed this? Thoughts? Thanks

13  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / 30 cube vanny drip gas out of vent tube. on: July 12, 2014, 11:46:43 AM
Has a double barrel Nikki carb on it. At an idle It's fine but I can see it start coming at around 4000-8000 rpm. Ran great Saturday and on Sunday started cutting out a bit around 4200 then rev up normal , then noticed a trail of gas when it was cutting out. Could this be a float and seat problem ? Plugs look rich on Sunday .
Thanks for any input

14  General / Coffee Shop / Need some help ( advice) on: June 21, 2014, 07:24:54 PM
I've been racing for 4 years now and totally hooked. In for the long haul . Really enjoy Lawnmower racing and don't want to see it fade away around here. I took over our club last year as president of the fvlma. All the old timers are retiring and I'm really having a hard time getting people involved into this sport. I canceled 4 events this year and have 4 still locally . Looking for  ideas to get new people wanting to get into the awesome sport of Lawnmower racing. Thanks
