Murray Select Racing Mower Project 2014-015 Murray Select Racing Mower Project 2014-016So far I have it lowered 3 inches. Steering is all hooked up and I want to use a vertical shaft motor. Does anyone have some good drive train ideas? My idea was to run the normal belt setup back to a 1:1 right angle gear box then have a sprocket coming of the gear box down to a live axle. But the rear end setup on bmi carts that I have is over $100. Any ways I can do this cheaper? Thanks!

I think the 1:1 thing with the RAGB is a good idea although.. you won't have reverse. Other than that it sounds like a good plan!

I know it wont have reverse. But im looking at prices. Which is cheaper? im on a low budget. I want to have fun and go fast just don't want to spend 500 on it.

I would say that if you are going to do it just put a little bit more money into the build and buy an old rear engine rider for it's transmission. They can sell for very little or free sometimes, take the trans from that and put it in the mower. This is what I am doing and have almost 600 dollars into my mower and still need a few more parts. Whatever you do it is going to cost you way more than what you originally budgeted. I have budgeted 100 dollars of mine when I first started it. these projects get way outta hand fast. If you do not believe me just ask Feerlessfront he has way more into his racer/ go kart project.

My advice is to run a peerless 700 three or five speed with a chain drive to a solid axle setup, from what I have heard the machine will be much more fun to drive. I cannot verify this because I have a little bit more work to do before I drive mine.
