I've been calling up for prices, and the dealers have been reccomending me the fixed deck without me even saying anything about it. It's nice to know that the only thing they care about isn't the price. When then reccomended it I asked about the scalping issue for the 48'' and they all said there would be no difference. They did however say that it was alot harder to change the height on the fixed deck. So what do you guys think, will scalping be an issue with the fixed deck metro? Also, for those of you guys that know alot about the difference between hydro and belt drive, I was wondering about gradual turns on the belt drive. I know on the hydro you can make gradual turns by just pulling in the lever a little bit, so it just decreases the speed of that one tire. But on the belt drive, can you actually just decrease it, or does it just completely stop that one tire? Thanks alot guys, I won't be annoying you for a while after this. My dad said if he gets a good deal we will get it tonight. YEAAAAAAAA!!!!
