I wouldn't do more than 25 on anything that hasn't had a fabricated front axle/steering geometry changed.....Ill give you a link to my Facebook page for my mower projects...The only full build so far is my racer.. may give you some ideas.

painted the under side of the fenders with bedliner

[img][/img]
painted the fenders to match the hood

[img][/img]
putting the fenders back on

[img][/img]
taking the front end off

[img][/img]
locked and lowered the front end an inch

[img][/img]
4 inch curb and 1 inch off the ground, so the frame only has a 3 inch flex.

the frame was a 2001 craftsman LT1000
the hood is off a older White tractor
and the fenders came off a 1990's craftsman

Yeah I saw that vid... I was thinking from the angle and distance about 25-30 myself Very Happy

I should be able to test my machine out in the next few days. I am hoping for a minimum of 30... but the pulley ratios may kill that. We shall see - I have others if I must lol
