Hi guys-

Thought id let you know what Ive been doing the past year lol.

Im now racing Mowers with the American Racing Mower Association! I built myself a Craftsman Mod XR Mower with ALL the goodies. The class requires a stock engine but there are a lot of things done to make my machine safe and ARMA legal..

- 1" Kart Axle
-MCP Hydraulic Brakes
-Peerless 700 Transmission
-Kart Style Adjustable Front End
-Aluminum Rims (All)
-Tether Kill Switch
-Direct Steering
-Double Pulley Clutch
-Redone Wiring
-Rear Chrome Molly Bumper

To name a few..

My Ratios are a SECRET, but Ill let you know that my final Ratio is around 5.7 to 1

Let me know what you think, Ive got a lot of time and money into it, but after two races this summer, IM HOOKED!



Thanks-
Nico
