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 .

Track is 1/8 mile.  125 ft staights and 45 ft inside radius corners.  I currently run an Oppy twin with about 25 hp with the simple mods I did.  Engine turns about 5200 rpm max.  I have 6" engine pulley, 4" transmission, 3rd gear is 25/25 and a 15 and 42 sprocket.  I have 8" rims with 16" tall tires.  I run about a 6:1 final on this track.  Works well but if I had more torque could I would like to get closer to a 5:1 final.  

Would having an 8" engine pulley with a 6" transmission give me more torque?

You would get better pull out of the turns with the 8X5 combination.  You're actually lugging it pretty good there. Depending on the cam, I found 6.5625:1 to be a good ratio for my opposed.  I was a bit weird with my gearing.  Because I had the torque, I wanted a bigger transmission sprocket to slow the chain down, so my gear combo was 16/56.  Now, you will hear all kinds of arguments that 3.5:1 is 3.5:1 is 3.5:1, and that's fine, BUT it did change the way the mower pulled, but made no difference on top speed.  And my chain lasted longer between services. Assuming a 48.86" rollout, you would still achieve roughly 36 MPH on the track.   twocents
