Oh jeeze what 10 years ago plus this place was hopping. I get Facebook became huge and we lost one of our main contributors but we gotta bring this back. Its been years since I sat on a lawnmower designed to go way faster than it was ever meant to go. Back in the day Rooster, Marc, and I would spend hours on skype talking about almost anything. We spent hours and hours playing some World Series of Poker that we were maybe 5% lucky with. We would spend hours trying to make the "boat anchor" opposed twin faster and more powerful. I always enjoyed the banter from George Herrin about that thing. I would like to think some life long friendships started here and it's sad to see it slowly dying down. There were times that 5-10 mower builds were going on at once with everyone sharing ideas of what has worked and what doesn't work. If everyone could push everyone back to the forum from Facebook I think we would see this grow to places that it once was.

Hey asking all for some help. An independent film company followed the fire department of Detroit, MI around for a year and make a documentary. They are all looking for donations to fully fund the movie. They currently have select showings all across the nation. I will post the link below if everyone could check it out, watch the trailer and maybe find a showing close to your home town that would be awesome. This shows a film crew following Engine Company 50 which is one of the nations busiest stations, it also shows the struggles of budget cuts and the demands that firefighters go though.

Coffee Shop / Broken ARC Hub

Just wondering if anyone else has had the same problem. Happened when I was pulling the flywheel off. I took all 6 bolts out and put the two in for pulling it off. Soon as I put some tension on it I noticed it was starting to crack...wondering if anyone has a better way of pulling it off? Should I start using a regular flywheel puller?

Couple short videos from the Mod-X class. The Barry County Grass Clippers are a newer ARMA group so we decided to go down and put a show on for them. Jayson Mikula also ran with the Mod-X since he was the only V-Twin there.
