 Well, life happens. I bought a house, work has been very busy, and I basically sort of moved on. So up for sale is my tried and true FX machine. In summary, I ran this mower for 5 seasons straight with a major modification to the frame and drivetrain about 3 years ago. After numerous mods to the steering and drivetrain I can honestly say this is now a very reliable ( I did not have any break downs over the last 2 years) and well-handling machine.

 The specs are as follows:
  1: Heavily modified, custom-built frame made of 1/8" steel tubing
  2: Fully adjustable ackerman steering setup. As its set not its perfect.
  3: all-chain driven with spring tensioners ( no slipping chains here)
  4: Titan centrifugal clutch
  5: International Cub Cadet RAGB
  6: Hydraulic rear brake
  7: 14.5 Briggs OHV with the following mods:
            - billet ARC flywheel
            - Billet Rod
            - AVS Briggs piston
            - Billet steel ARC crank- no counterweights needed
            - ported and polished intake and exhaust
            - K&N filter and adjustable jet carb
  Bottom line: All the crap that tends to break on and engine won't break with this one.
  8: 2 positions for the seat- either closer or further from the steering wheel.

 I can say with all honesty that this mower will easily keep right up with some of the V-twin big boys and handle like a dream. It took me years to get it all dialed in.

 Comes with: Extra RAGB, Neck Brace, Helmet, and depending on your shoe size- boots.

 I had a long time to think this over, but I think its now time to let it go. $1,500 OBO.

Due to shipping being prohibitive, sale is for the Northern California region unless the buyer arranges for shipping.

Since you are new, the USLMRA rules state that you must run one of the other classes for a season before you can drive in the classes that allow the kart seats.

That being said, The seat is simply mounted to the frame and the fenders are reworked to fit.

Ok guys we have a local race this weekend. If you're close by it would be a good time to get some practice before the National race on Memorial Day weekend. Gates open at 2:00. Races start at 6:00.

I'm new to mower racing and I've seen guys with kart seats mounted between the fenders. How is this done and be able to retain the favorite frame? Pictures would be a great help too. Thanks in advance.

Not trying to start anything because I have no clue about particular engine but being on this forum for a while now, the last couple sentences sound rather arrogant and demanding. Sometimes you have to take the good with the bad, after all its a public forum but maybe someone will be able to help.

Hey yall, relatively new to the lawn mower scene, I work mostly on cars. My question is, would advancing the timing on my predator 212 at the cam sprocket make any difference in power?  Even just a small amount, I'm doing a lot of little things that, when put together will equal bigger gains. Any help would be much appreciated
P.S I know there's a chance of blowing the engine, I'm only talking about a tooth or two. Please don't waste my time with "you'll blow the engine!" Just answer the question.

The system I put together works slick . I had to do something different after a couple of wrecks last season , I was out of position to be able to get to the foot brake .
