    OK I know...looks like a pile of junk!
    I am planning to do a full photo tutorial and Maybe some Video on this build so you guys can see what goes into Building a USLMRA race ready Mowchine!

    Plans for this C/P Class build include:
    A quick adjust front end using BMI Spindle kit and MCP Front Brakes. Will be a rear steer center pivot set-up.

    Out back will be a 1" axle with Quick change #40 gears and not sure on brakes yet....have some decisions to make there?

    USLMRA Rules require the USE of a Lawn mower transmission, I will be using the Peerless 350 with some modifications.

    13 X 6.50 X 6 Carlisle Turf Master front tires on 6X7 Kart rims.

    16 X 7.50 X 8" Rear tires, chassis will be built using Carlisle Turf Pro's as they are the shortest of the popular race treads I use. I use them for building so that I can set my minimum height with them.

    And of course the mill will be A Cutloose Racing Opposition Engine, Generation 3....and that is about all the details you will get on that! I guess I can tell you it starts life as a Briggs 18 HP, 42 Cube flat head opposed twin.

    This will be a winter build, and I build in spurts so posts may not come often, look for a finished project in February.

    If winning was easy, then the losers would be winners.
