Welding the Diff and Drifting the Rat Rod Race Mower



This week we weld the differential on our rat rod racing lawn mower to give us posi traction, allowing us to (in theory) drift. Then we drag race against the drag …

    If you had air tools you could blow that rear off first..

    i think you should put a turbo on a new motor and see how the mower goes

    Can you put a clip of the what action is about to happen. Lol like at the beginning of the video to give it a taste of what the videos about.

    Actually, at 13:49-50 you can see the right tire jerk real quickly, I think that was the welds breaking on the diff right there, correct me if I'm wrong

    i think you fucked something up when you welded that diff. its easy too do. even the smallest piece of slag can destroy those transaxles

    The slow mo of Ike drifting had me dying but the classical music was too much for me

    Keep going with it unless y'all come up with something better then we could vote on it

    Hey guys I would say fix that up maybe put some negative camber on the back wheels and put maybe thinner or less grippy tires on the back so you have less grip and it's easier to get sideways and hold drifts. If you do that I say that's it for that project. Then I would love to see some sort of awd/4×4 go kart build, preferably lifted and a mud bog type thing. That'd be one of a kind! Thanks.

    I blew up the motor in one of those and have been slowly converting it to chain drive with a 420cc

    You need to pack the rears with wheel bearing grease or grease Gun grease that's what we used to do with out lawn mowers the rears last so much longer and I suggest a old bike brake lever as your throttle on your steering wheel it works out better then a foot one

    Didn't hear on David Stacey's Garage. Do not mix Tetrachloroethylene and Argon with heat or it will give a Nerve gas

    air up the rear tires a bunch on the mower and you should be able to slide a lot better

    Keep the build in the back of the shed and maybe start something new but don't get rid of it.
