I figured I would post some of the pics from the Fawn Grove show of some of the racing tractors that were there. I still can't get over how modified some of them are. This is just a few of them, you can see all the pics from the show here.

Cool pics, I've always wanted to build a racer but I don't know when I'd actually find time to race one with all the pulls and other activities I got goin on in the summer.

It is always hard to find time, the other factor for me is how much money you would have to spend just to be competitive. I guess if you want to do it for just fun it might not be too expensive.

I suppose if you had good fab skills it probly wouldn't be to expensive to put a lower class racer together.

They are nice racer, but Joe mine is lawn mower that just go's fast you didn't even open it up. I think you only went about 20 or so. But at your age that's about 13 mph to fast for you. for your age and cant see that well cant move that fast, and out here where I live, you mite not see a deer with them bad eye's and get hurt and then I would feel bad. so don't ask to ride it again lol it's my Toy. James

Watching them tune em and run em up and down the field before the racing started was pretty cool, I can't believe how responsive they are. I would like to build just the motor to play with.

Are these tractors sporting decks or is that something else below them
