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.

[img]Racing Lawn Tractor ( Mean Rabbit ) - Page 2 72677_10[/img]
painted the under side of the fenders with bedliner

[img]Racing Lawn Tractor ( Mean Rabbit ) - Page 2 52544210[/img]
painted the fenders to match the hood

[img]Racing Lawn Tractor ( Mean Rabbit ) - Page 2 16467010[/img]
putting the fenders back on

[img]Racing Lawn Tractor ( Mean Rabbit ) - Page 2 17294_10[/img]
taking the front end off

[img]Racing Lawn Tractor ( Mean Rabbit ) - Page 2 55501010[/img]
locked and lowered the front end an inch

[img]Racing Lawn Tractor ( Mean Rabbit ) - Page 2 54894810[/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
