Learning how to build a racing mower is the same as learning how to build a Race Car. The principles are the same only that it is easier to work with a mower engine because it is less complicated. Not to mention, cleaning tips less expensive.
build a car engine In the mounting of a new exhaust, and you need that throbbing rumble from it, first consider what your local laws state. Noise pollution has become a major legal issue. Before you choose what kind of noise you would like, know to what extent you should go to.
rebuild a car engine When the engine is smoking while the engines is just sitting idle, that means there is severe blow by on the rings of the engine.

The strength of the frame can be an illusive thing unless you know a bit about strength of materials and actually how to calculate the cracking stress and bending deflections. Usually what we do is: “If in doubt make it stout.” That is a nice adage but it can be detrimental to a go kart design. You can end up throwing a lot of steel at a section of the go kart and actually not get any headway. So analyzing the frame prior to actually putting it together is a good idea. The last thing you want is a frame that snaps in half, or cracks in the middle.

Shortly after that conversation with my dad, we passed the TransAm, and he laughed at me saying “that car is ugly, it needs some chrome man, geez look at that boring thing”. Eventually my dad took me to a car show in East LA. Not the safest place in town, but chrome was all the rage. The early lowriders and hot rodders were pimping their rides to no end. The only cars that impressed me were the fast cars with the big motors. My dad was big into the 70’s version of “Bling”, a “Rat Pack” want to be its’ finest form.
