    The DC with the 150 HP Jet engine is on my equipment page on my Website. I was told it will go 60 MPH, but I wouldn't want to be on it. :)<p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;http://pages.prodigy.net/eric.erickson/&quot;&gt;Eric@ELM&lt;/a&gt;<br>

    Karl, here is the lawn mower racing web site. Looks like it would be a fun off season sport for us &quot;pros&quot; <br>http://www.letsmow.com/

    A little town about 40 miles from where I grew up has a big 4th of July celebration every year. Each year at the celebration they have lawnmower races. They get guys from all over the country to race. It's really become quite a big thing there. I went last year, and there was talk about getting ESPN2 to cover it for this year. A lot of fun to watch. They race on a small dirt track, they have different classes from stock to modified. Some of those modified mowers really fly.

    Hey Karl, lawn mower races might be crazy, but the #1 award for crazy has got to go to the Crokodile Hunter from down under.<p>----------<br>Bobby <br>Ft Lauderdale
