And in IMOW, you will race in the highest gear available.  If you have a 5 speed, you will race in 5th, not 3rd.  You just have to gear the mower to 8 to 1 using pulleys and gears on the transmission and on the axle.

Also, where are you located?  There may be racers very close by you that can will let you go to their house and look at their mowers and give you suggestions on how to build.

Quick question, do I weld the bearing hangers on which ever way I want? I'm guessing what ever way to avoid bolt holes landing on stamped features right?

Do I even need to use these weldaments??

Weld them just like you have them in the pic..then take and cut a slot at the bottom of the hangers so you can drop the whole axle out the bottom if need to ..
