now that we know your going to come out and try and beat me i dont think i'm going to be around for you to come over and look at it . :woo: now if you had said that you were going to try and beat me on my OWN MOWCHINE then i could have helped but it sounds like you dont need any help  >:D
that as i told Randy is only the third one of this kind of MOWchine that i have seen . I'm sure there are many mower out there but not as easy to find as some of the other RUGG MOWCHINES .

LEE that has to be the worst that anyone has ever butchered my name , I'v seen alot of differant spellings of my name but that is the best . LOL :lol:

I was wondering,are you using the vertical crank engine because that is what you got,or is it because that is what is winning in other guys machines,or is it parts availability,or you just like briggs engines? I was just wondering because you can use the horizontal crank engine and do away with the angle drive in F/X.

The horizontal Hondas are doing quite well at present...but to get get them there is also a bit pricy...

The Briggs have been holding their own are a little (lot) cheaper to build and rumor has it there are some trick pieces coming out with the advent of the CP class (more OHVs will be "experimented" on)...and you "might" even be seeing a horizontal Briggs or two out there.... :ninja:

as George and Squidd both said in a way , its because they work very well when setup right , not to say mine is right  :confused: but i was running a flathead from George and did pretty good with it and way better on some tracks than the bigger mower powerfull motors . :woo: but next year as was preluded to I will be running a BRANDY NEW OHV from GEORGE and from the sound of it it's going to be BAD  >:D >:D and not in the least bit stealth like your little ninja there Squidd :omg: :lol:

  I was just curious because as you said the hondas are doing good and I was seeing a lot of hondas on most of the pictures of F/X machines.We have been using Hondas on our machines just in stock form because we can take the govenor off and rev them all day long and it dosn't seem to make too much difference on the durability,they take it and keep on going.But you are right they cost more in the first place.Oh and the ARC flywheel makes them just wild.
  Do you guys know if they are getting them up to 465cc because the stock 13Hp is only 390cc?
