    OK guys, spill the beans, how do you get perfect sraight stripes on bumpy lawns.
    The stuff I mow is mainly of field quality turf (whats fert and weedkiller? :p ) but it stripes up nice when you mow it. The trouble is that the lawns are about as flat as the rockies. When you go over the bumps although the steering is striagt it looks like you turned because the difference in height.
    How do I prevent this short of resurfacing the lawns (which im not gunna do)?

    Thanks for any help

    PS, moss stripes up good too :p
    Cheers

    You would think that an answer like that would come for me, as I live in Nascar central.
