turns out stock lawn tractors aren’t really built for doing burnouts in the yard.
I had it tied to a bush stump thinking it would be enough to get it out but i was wrong. it just sat there and spun the tires which of course made the 10 y/o in me giggle. I may have done it more than once which stretched out the drive belt. Half way through my last mow, the drive belt repeatedly fell off the pullies and would need replacing.
