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.

  • You should do gun spinning by that I mean a fake revolver my recommendation is denix peacemaker revolver spins really good if you want a challenge try denix scochfield revolver the goal of the episode would be to spin the gun for one minute there are multiple different forms of gun spinning like forward and backward spinning there are some pretty good videos on LVworld showing you how to spin a revolver if that’s too easy you should try spinning it then passing it to your other hand and spinning it for a minute just hope you do it I think it will be cool PS Kevin oh yeah the gun is 59.99 usd you can get it at replica weaponry Jus go to replica weapons then Wild West weapons and there are multiple different designs and barrel length the barrel length matters allot because you don’t wanna hit your arm so I’d measure the length of you arm from your index finger to your shoulder then get a peacemaker that has a barrel half that size agian PS Kevin

  • 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.
