Just saying hi from the Nashville area. My wife and kids decided that they want a racing mower. There uncle has one they got to try and were hooked. So far I've got a craftsman lt1000 with a briggs 20.5 oppy and a hydrostatic trans and a bad front axle. I know I need to find a different transaxle but any other pointers I can get will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for the welcome George. I registered on that site as well. In case I missed it, is there a rule book for the BTMRA on that site I could download?

Just got a free craftsman dyt4000! 21 hp intek vtwin, should be a better starting point than the lt1000 with a 20.5 oppy and hydrostatic trans that I currently have.

Pointer #1: Read before you build!!
Pointer #2: Your close to the King of Mower racing - Super George Herrin!
Though were not sure if he's the "King" like Richard Petty, or Elvis??

I've been reading, a lot. I know there are better motors and chassis to start with. I just want to make sure I get the chassis dialed in, brakes right etc, before building up a better motor. George lives about three hours from me and ec is about an hour. My only goal with this build is to teach my kids some more mechanic/welding skills and have fun with my family. I do look forward to going to the races and meeting everyone.
