Simplicity racers?

Recommended Posts

Over the weekend I watched an exibition of lawnmower racing. I saw a Deere, a Toro, a Cub and several others that I couldn't recognize but no Simplicity's! Does anyone here participate in lawnmower racing and do you race a Simplicity?

I race tractors in drags and in circle ..some machines are better suited towards either type but the simplicity is well suited for pulling heavy frame design and stability make them very very good for pulling for circle tracks MTD is the most common easy to find body parts such as the fenders. Drag racing a long frame and stable steering is suitable such as a Toro/Wizard/Gilson. body style. Most sanctioned race rules are set at Factory RPM mostly for safety reasons so the governors are not really changed or removed. HP vs Torque is the name of the game not RPM from the engine the gear ratios make or break the race times most are like a go-Kart with a tractor body. light, wide and short tires. low end torque is the mainstay also dummy decks must be installed regardless of body type used. you can get a rule book here----> [url]http://www.letsmow.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/2010-USLMRA-Rule-Book.pdf[/url]to see what the mowers look like try this lnk [url]http://www.letsmow.com/media/uslmra-tv/[/url]

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
