Suspension would kill mower racing as we know it.

Sorry for all the questions but trying to do a little research before i order all my parts, i asked about alum. axles and dont believe they hold up very good, so what about holow steel 1 1/4in axles? just trying to shed as much weight as possible

The good, quality 1.25" tubular axles are fine. In all the years I ran them, I only bent 1.

You will need a "hat" to move the rotor over the top of the end of the transaxle, as otherwise, you will run out of room to fit the brakes and the wheel. Unless you go about 46" wide..

Yeah, but my plow truck also has the radiator support mounts rotted out, so it's got that "Gangsta lean".


But, it still looks better than this.

Bert, sell your Pinto and buy me this.

Aside from the dumb pics, looks like it just needs to be painted a real color, and a big block Ford under the hood.

I know of a fellow who used a solid aluminum one. He was rather "robust". It bent in short order.

Search "easy radius rods".
It might even be a sticky in the build section.

Yeah, I sometimes wonder the "why" when it comes to East German Trabant's also.

This guy is willing to trade for a Pinto.

The shock loading of a centrifugal clutch on a Peerless 700 will turn it into junk in a short period of time.
Possibly faster than an East German Trabant vomiting out it's entire oil supply and promptly seizing.

It was Miller Lite and Bud light Bert's lab could tell the difference between.

I'm not allowed on Facebook per my wife.
My wife says I would just be myself and get in trouble.
I disagree.

Murray is Murray.
MTD is MTD.
John Deere is John Deere.
You started with a Murray chassis. You will have to find Murray bodywork that you like and get that. Or, go with a different brand all together.

Plus, I heard a rumor that Chuck was adding on an outlet store to sell his signature series flip-flops.
As we all know, they are the fastest flip-flops this side of the Atlantic. Thats why my kids wear them.
