If you really listen hard, you can hear the other guy, and he was not nursing it.... that was 2 riders giving it a good rip. But man, you are right.... that 6 mower sounded mean. I have sent that to a few people who are not into mowers, they ask what car engine is that.... or is it a motorcycle engine..... can't get over that it's a mower engine. You mean like in my lawn tractor.... I said... sure is.

It is amazing what you can do to a lawn mower engine, seriously, no body would have never guessed that you can get over 50 hp or more power out of a modded v twin lawn mower motor and on top of that making it sound identical to a Harley and better than a Harley.

Yeah I just stumbled upon this today. There are more copies of our  videos at www.dslmra.zoomshare.com where we have posted several of our mower Video's in the dslmra forum, and a complete 5 min video of the talladega race, is in the works too. I am the guy that finished second to george that night. George's Motors are good mow engines he builds. I think george said he turned 6800 in the feature, I never turned over 6000 the entire night. I raced a stock briggs inteck vtwin  with a Hitchiker set of heads, carburator and a billet Flywheel. Outside of that all parts say briggs, even the cam stock.
 It was a fun race, George races good, and his motors sound awesome when you here it next to you on the starting grid, just don't get to far behind him when he fires it up because he will make you eat dust literaly LOL. But I did give it all I had that night, and did a lot of off season work to prepare for the next meeting with george. My Team B&F Motorsports/Southern Outlaws, will be hosting a set of fully modified Hitchiker Mowass engines, I had to do my homework after racing george, and had to spend a little too. But I think this will be one of our best races ever. Look forward to a fun race.

Your not the only one that George makes try to improve , I meet him a few years ago just being around him makes a guy want to be a better mower racer . That and all that he does to help others is what makes him such a great guy to race with and if your lucky enough to have build your motors .

I asure you his motors are not to be taken lightly, but I have been with Hitchiker engines for a while now, and have been working for and with him. He is another one of the great motor builders out there. I will get a chance to put hitchiker engines against the best in the us this year. I hope it to be good one.
I just simply wanted to show what a set of heads and carburators by hitchiker are able to do to an engine, now e=imagine a entire engine of hitchiker's. We will post a video by the end of talladega and alll of our major events this year. Good luck to all, it should be fun.

 I have raced a few of the bigger motor builders in the country, and I have to say the strongest I have seen was  george's motors, he is the only one that has ever made me run hard. Hitchiker Engines for life here....Good luck in 2007
