    Here's my mower, all fixed and ready for race season. Lots of new upgrades and a new paint job. Reckon she will do about 50MPH now.

    If you're in NC, there are TONS or racing groups there already. Look up either the ARMA or USLMRA. Those are two sanctioned organizations and they have a strong presence in the South.

    The mower is almost entirely hand-built. It uses a heavily modified 12 HP briggs flathead engine with a billet rod and piston, billet flywheel, precision cam, straight exhaust pipe ( it is LOUD), custom steering with hand-built spindles with correct inclination, hydraulic brakes, a heavy duty centrifugal clutch, custom built frame, and a right angle gear box as the tranny. Took about 9 months to complete.

    here is the link for ARMA's local chapters:
