Hey Rink- welcome to the forum, AND the contest. I will be watching this closely, and look forward to swapping info with you. I am mid-build on my first race mower, too! What class/rules are you building to?

Very cool. And very yellow! And FYI- you don't need to worry about the sign anymore- that's just for starting.
