My dad and I completed changing the head on his riding mower. I thought it was the perfect father/son project, and wondered what others have been doing.

Valonmxz I will after we get the new clay installed this weekend. Just hoping the rain holds off so we have an easier time filling in the new clay. Also keeping our fingers and toes crossed that haydays still happens! My father built the tack back in 2007-2008. It was originally built for stock sleds so we didn't mind the slight right curve. It was idle for about 8 years and only the grass was mowed. We recently (last year) got back in grass and jumped up into faster/tougher class so it's time to add some more clay and straightened it out for safety reasons. We are a young team four of us total ranging in age from 31-28 years old. We're learning as we go/paying our dues and having fun while doing it.

Learning the hard way is not so bad.....That's great that your team give each other encouragement. Good luck with the weather :)

The XP was the most fun sled ever made - but I liked my XR more. The 850 takes it to a whole different level.

My thoughts go to all of you who lost their dad. Feel free to share past memories. I presented mine with my father, but many of you are fathers. And if you are not, then you are undoubtedly a father figure for another kid, boy or girl. I would have loved to have a daughter and teach her how to handle a sled and fend the boys.

My dad was an aircraft mechanic and while my brothers pursued that line of work, I did the electronics/programmer line and became a network manager.   But I never forgot my roots and the things my dad taught me.  I still use many of the tools he left behind to tear down an engine and put it back together.  I surprised my brother a few years ago by rebuilding a 380 motor completely, including crank work, without his help.  hehe.   

 

now-a-days, I rebuild just about anything, and I've always give credit to my greatest teacher, my dad.
