Question: where is a good place to buy parts?
I looked at bmikarts for parts of the axle and 2 wheels but shipping alone will send me back 150 dollars.
A good shop somewhere in the e.u. would probably save me some extra money

The E.U. all buy from the US what they can't make. Shipping will always be the highest cost.

We dont have clubs 
We dont have races either for that matter.
Iam litteraly the first one in israel.
Not too long ago even car racing was still banned.

I am maybe thinking about organizing a litlle racing day for stock mowers next year for prize money.
Maybe other people will catch the bug too.
I myself am dutch so i grew up around crazy farm boys and festivals, just hoping to bring the same spirit here.

Racing Mower Builds / Snapper racing mower build

Hey guys,

Iam starting this topic off a little different than usual
Iam a mechanic for an importer of john deere snapper ferris etc and the whole 9 yards.
Now just last week I got spurred on by my wife to make a racing mower.
I got my eyes on a snapper carcass we have lying around in the junkyard so I know what my base is going to be.

Now before I can start taking any pictures I need some guidance on what parts I need.
I know Iam going for a live kart axle as all mowers we have are hydros
ill take an ragb from a john deere deck
Iam going 4 inch rims front 6 inch rear and turf tyres to keep it sort of looking like the original thing.

Other than that I need a shopping list of what Iam going to need for a live axle so I can order my things if anyone can help me with that

Also, what engine is the best I can take? We mostly have briggs and kawasakis lying around.
I was thinking a briggs v twin?

Thanks in advance

A whole month and 118 different views and nobody and nothing. Not even somebody getting mad at me for it not being a lawnmower project

Thanks for nothing

I been moving and had no internet for a month, too hard to scold someone on a cell phone...
Now that I got internet back....  :ninja: :ninja: :bday:

New to forum, new to wanting to mower race.  I'm perusing through Craigslist and there are many affordable mower candidates, but I don't know where to start.  For starters, I want to participate in the local fairground's mower race this year and need to start building a racing mower.  Fabrication is not a problem, I just need a base to start with.  What is the most common size mower motor for Joe-adult wanting to get into the sport?  I have no aspirations of making it to the NASCAR of mower racing, me and the boys just want to have some fun and some beers.  Thx.

What does the engine rule state you can run?

400 trans will last a long time. I use 75/140w but you could just use 80/90. You can use both sides of output. Thereís a parts list on Here for all the bearings and washers, seals. Iíve never turned one on itís side , wonít last long as it wonít get oil to needle bearings on pinion shaft. I put a 1/8th pipe thread drain plug in bottom and a breather vent on top, then you good to go. Iíve put all kinds of rpm on trans never blew one up yet.
