Slicks Garage "World's Fastest Lawnmower"!

Here is Slick, the owner of Slicks Garage in Palmetto,FL. and star of the Discovery Channel's newest hit car show "Highway To Sell", doing a burnout on his "World's Fastest Lawnmower" during the garage's monthly event called "First Fridays on Fifth". Held the 1st Friday of each month at Slicks Garage, 923 5th St. W. Palmetto,FL.. This was from August 2010. And by the way, for all of you asshhats who sent me emails stating "Well, Johnny So-and-So has the record for the world's fastest lawn mower! This ain't the world's fastest lawn mower!"......GET OVER IT!! I don't care WHO has the "record". IT WAS JUST A TITLE. Good grief people, get over yourselves.

2013 Gold Cup Ford Flathead Powered John V8 Deere 200 Lawnmower Tractor Nostalgia Drag Racing
Buy Drag Strip Riot Posters! http://www.maziracing.com/2004poster/index.htm August 17-18, 2013 - Third Annual Gold Cup - Empire Dragway I don't know which is cooler. A '37 Ford Flathead stuffed between the frame rails of an early 70s John Deere 200 lawn tractor, or the fact that a then 16-year-old kid from Lottsville, Pennsylvania, designed, built and owns it. I think I'll just roll with both on the equally cool meter. While roaming the pits of the 2013 Gold Cup at Empire Dragway, my husband, Mark, happened upon Todd and Wanda Johnson's pit area and found this uber-unique pit vehicle. It's not like we were at a county fair; it was a Gasser meet, after all. During the between rounds pit visit, Mark was able to get a quick chat in with Todd Johnson who stated that his son, Tyler, built the entire combination and where they were from. Armed with that info, I was able to track Tyler down to find out the "hows and whys" of this project. Me -- "So what was the inspiration behind the this project?" Tyler --"Well, way back in the day, I used to restore and pull old John Deeres. A customer of ours knew this and told my dad that he had an old lawn mower that quit running and was just sitting in his barnyard. He said I was welcome to it and see if I could get it running again. I was 14, maybe 15, when we got it. We brought it home, and I ripped the motor apart only to discover it just wasn't repairable." Me-(chuckling to myself over the "back in the day" response) "And you're how old now?" Tyler --"I'm 23 now." Me- "Okay. So the John Deere engine is a no-go, how did the Flathead come about as a replacement?" Tyler --"About a year before getting the lawnmower, we went to an auction and bought a few Flatheads. One of them was a complete car that we paid 10 bucks for. We were told the car ran when it was parked over four decades earlier, but in reality it was beyond junk. We were surprised it even made it home on the trailer. The closer we got to home, the more the rusted out body kept leaning to one side. We ended up salvaging the engine, rear end and transmission, and scrapped everything else. Those parts sat untouched until one day I drug it into the garage to see if I could get it running. It was just a motor and tranny sitting on the floor with a battery hooked up and some tape holding the spark plug wires together. I sprayed some gas down the carb and hit the starter with some power and it lit right off. That was enough for us to decide that was the motor we wanted to run." "With that in mind, I visited a friend of mine who was already building a Cub Cadet with a V6 and I got the tape measure out to see if it would fit in the John Deere. I measured the John Deere and decided then that we could make his plan work. This was December of 2006. For Christmas, my parents bought me some C Channel for a frame and I started there. However, my mom put a $200 budget cap on the project. I used a rear axle from a mid-80s S-10. I wanted the wheelbase to be as close to original as I could get it, so there's no drive shaft it's just a u-joint instead. I made the rear fenders 4" wider, and it still has the lawnmower front axle (which I want to change soon)." Me --"This is great stuff, Tyler. How long did it take you to build, and what are your future plans?" Tyler -- "I finished building it in 2007 when I was 16, and it didn't quite take a year to build. Progress slowed down when it got to the point of me starting to drive. Right now, I can't run it too long before it overheats, and I want to rebuild it so it has a radiator. But I started working on my Karmann Ghia, and so the lawnmower plans are now on hold." John Deere Ford Flathead V8 Rat Rod





R1 Go Kart Passes a Cop
COOL INFO: Kart was bought for $5,000 plus shipping. It has had several owners. Previous owner from Georgia owned kart for literally two weeks then re-listed on eBay citing it was the most ridiculous thing he'd ever driven and there weren't many places to use it. Originally this kart had 6 wheels (google images R1 go kart). It was drag raced and crashed due to the front wheels coming off the ground. One owner told the story of trying to get the major tire manufacturers to produce a tire that would allow the kart to attempt to go over 200mph and not blow up (find video below in description of tire blowing up with speedo reading 181mph). 150mph or higher is reached in fourth gear, there are six gears :). Kart has been sold and the new owner is putting paddle shifters and other goodies on it. The local police have had two driver suspects. Both suspects have been harassed/threatened by police. They think they know who the driver was, they're wrong. He still remains a mystery. You DO NOT have my permission to re-upload my "R1 Go Kart Passes A Cop" without my written permission. I have already filed copyright infringement claims against 5 channels for re-uploading my video for financial gain. This is a one of a kind custom frame built specifically for this engine. One of the previous owners told me the gentlemen that bought it from him had it up to 170-181mph. This kart is wicked. WATCH TILL THE END, A POLICE CAR PASSES IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION!! If your impatient to watch 10 minutes of video, skip to 7:50 and watch till the end for the best part. 2005 Yamaha R1 Sport Bike engine in a Beisse Shifter Kart. Around 180 HP, weighs about 220lbs. Previous owner had Kart up to 181 mph before a tire blew out. Using GoPro Hero High Def camera with adhesive mount. NOTE: The rear tires are worn out so the driver didn't do anything to crazy. The ending was edited out to protect the driver. Location: Northern Michigan Here are a couple videos of the previous owner; where the speedo read 181mph and spun out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MmH4ZwwnXCk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tV-dwsWh0NQ&feature=related

The V8 Barstool [S2 Ep. 4-3]
In the world of hot rodding, when gear heads gather around and start discussing their projects, invariably the conversation drifts into speculation of what the smallest thing is that you can successfully put a V8 engine in. Well today on GEARZ, Stacey pretty much puts an end to that speculation by building a V8 powered BARSTOOL!! It's part go-cart... part garden tractor... part insane... and ALL hot rod. Which of course is what GEARZ is all about! If you like WILD.. then you don't want to miss this show! Then Stacey dives into some Muffler Tech to show you what kind of mufflers there are on the market, and give you some tips that might help you make the right decision when the time comes to stick some cool mufflers on your machine!

Small Block Tractor Burn Out
This is a short hastily throw together video of me trying out my sister's pulling tractor. There is something I should make clear before it is asked: 1) Yes I am wearing Crocs. 2) It was laundry day, I don't normally ride around in over sized sweat pants, tee shirt, and some Crocs. 3) I don't care what you think about Crocs.
