Not alot of power. Not to get up and down the hills around here. Remember most fields will only allow vehicles that could pass as their real life counterparts.... within reason of course

no, no, no, I meat something else.
the explanation was that it was more efficient and cheaper than BD and you could just put a bigger motor in.
power is not a problem.

"just put a bigger motor in it" I am getting the feeling you are in over your head.

Zero-turn mower drivetrains are hydrostatic -- Basically hydraulic pumps and motors. There is a maximum power input you can give these things. I briefly glanced over them while making plans for my own 8x8, which would have (and will, if I win the lottery or marry a billionaire) been driven by 8 hydraulic wheel motors fed by a pair of pumps attached to a standard gas motor.

My goals were a tad different, though -- I was shooting for a vehicle which could go anywhere, and get up to a target speed of 55mph. The design would have been principally a tube frame chassis, and being able to drop a tank body on top for airsoft was a secondary concern.

I started to feel in over my head, and I used to run a shop building racing engines, so it's been said that I know a thing or two.

similar to my idea, but only two hydraulic motors are used and the gaps are filled with roller chain.
