This is one fast mower, it has a 10hp briggs, hand throttel, stright pipe, aluminum pullies, 5 spd. The governer has been removed and deck has been gutted. The only thing left is to upgrade the suspintion, it is a very scary ride with stock suspintion. Call Frank at 678 283 3533

Yeah, I've got one. It's at a friend's house and in kind of bad shape right now, but we clocked it going 43 in 4th gear, not wide open either. I ran out of straight field before I ran out of gears and throttle and had to slow down. They sure are fun. Dangerous too. That's one of those things I'll look back on years from now and think, "What in the world were we thinking? Riding a lawn more over 50 miles per hour? With no helmet!" We rigged up a funky clutch and foot throttle on it. It'd pop a wheelie in 2nd or 3rd gear. And blue flame would come out of the exhaust stack (yes, chrome straight pipe) when we floored it going up a hill.

Buy it and go racing but you may not win much with a mower that slow.

Yeah I was just going to say to them guys laughing and running around in them
puny unmarked beaters without a helmet might want to get with the program.

The next race for the stock classes is in November but it looks like the end of season event so
plan accordingly and they might let you in next year but it's going to be a lot of work.

Although I can kind of see some folks are probably laughing even harder now :p
