This week I tried converting a lawnmower for racing. It didn't quite go to plan. Building a racing lawnmower is, in theory, quite straight forward. However, in practice preparing an old rusty lawnmower for a 40 lap race has it's pitfalls.

  • Racing mowers here in North America are a little more advanced. Basically, they're mowers crossed with go-karts here. The top level mowers use V twin engines and many of them make more than 100hp. Lower level mowers use pretty much the same chassis usually, just with less power. They do all start as lawnmower chassis, but they get modified heavily.

  • His first mistake was pulling out the wiring harness, which most likely cause the engine stalling, becuase of the safety sensor under the seat, that’s why it was falling when you hit a numb, it’s becuase you messed up the sensor causing every little bump to set it off.

  • I feel like this is over-complicating things all you really need to do to go fast is a pulley swap and mowing deck delete.
