OBVIOUSly there are many more steps in building a racing mower. Click the link below to see a 21 step guide to the mechanics of building one! Don't be afraid to try...and if your community doesn't offer a venue for such racing, START ONE! Lawn Mower Racing is an ALL AMERICAN SPORT, and the crowds love it!

We do it as a charity moneymaker to support local civic needs in the community, and it is a great sport to bring the citizens in your town closer together...just to meet and share time together.

But it won't happen, if YOU do not make it happen!

FROM BLUEPRINTS...

To a classic WHEEL STANDER!

(The Evolution of The TRIMINATOR Racing Lawn Mower!)

First, you find a mower...

Junkmowerproject, Spirit Lake Big Back In, COOL RIDES CAR SHOW.com

Old Mowers are everywhere! Chose yours based on overall size,

and for the basic shape and weight...all other factors can be

altered to suit your needs! It is FAR easier to find the mower and

use it to design your racer, than to design something, and then

go looking for a mower to match your plans!

Then, you work on a design...

AND if you don't like the first design, you just keep trying!

THEN you start cutting and painting...

Till your RACER is done! Of course, sometimes there are 'Bugs' that show up along the way!

(The TRIMINATOR worked great in practice straight out of the garage, but at the track, it was a bit temperamental! A small belt routing problem that appeared fine in the garage resulted in two problems at the track in Spirit Lake: it burned up those expensive belts really fast! And it did not like to stay in place, and required a human 'anchor' at times to keep it from creeping forward on its own!)

But then...it really liked those airborne Take-Offs!

What a crowd pleaser!

Switch lanes, face another opponent, then burn up the track again! And watch the crowd smile as you burn by them!

At the end of the day, one more cruise up the track...and then off to the announcer's podium to accept the trophy for most popular mower at the event!

Trophy in hand, Tim head's back to the garage to fix that pesky belt problem, before the next races at Rathdrum and Priest River, Idaho!

A RACER's work is never done! And just when you think you've got it all whipped, you think of a different design...for next year! And then it's back to the drawing board to do it all over again!
