Fixed Steering - 50 minutes

Fixed Steering - 50 minutes
This next stage didn't seem to be a huge mechanical change - but the lawn was much quicker. Basically, I tried to bend the frame straight (even with a 6 foot bar this was futile. I must have hit the tree pretty hard). However, I was able to carve away some metal to give the steering bar room to move.)

On the grass, I guess I developed some new techniques to use the pedal. Coming into a turn, I back right off which plants the front better and turning radius shortens. Coming out of the turn, I floor it and revs back up to full speed.

The results are staggering. The entire lawn took 50 minutes.
