Looks like you got the video working like it's supposed to. Or, at least it's working great on my connection anyhow.

Looks like the little yellow gitter works pretty good, my imagination or are you picking up a push when you get back in the throttle coming out of the turns?

good im glad i got it workin.

nope no pushing in corners but it looks like it cause it goin alil sideways. it might push threw corners when i can take them a lil faster lol. i dont know why some people say you have more traction with rear engine mowers lol. first day i had it out it was a lil wet/damp and i could not keep it straight i just went sideways.  i will try and get some better vids of it for u guys.

Just appears to go wide on you about the time you stand on it coming out of the corners, maybe it's your preferred line. Looks really good going in and most of the way through the corner, then you go wide coming out was why I asked. Watching you on it the weight all appears between the wheels and it really shouldn't if you have air pressure right.

I still love the looks of that thing, it is just plain cool man! That is one bad looking little rear engine mowchine. I love it!!

reason for going wide is cause i am halfway off the seat cause i got nuttinm holding me on it.  i go where ever the mower handles best on the track im on.  i like the look also. when ifirst got it i was like yey supermod here i come >:D  it also turns so good and i have only let a few psi out of right front and left rear. other 2 are at 20 psi so with some tweeking with that it will turn even better.

thanks kyle

Drop those two by half...and tweak from there and you might really start hooking up...
