It seems that any motor sport eventually becomes a "cheating contest" for those at the top. Do you enjoy pulling for fun or is winning important to you? Building to win can get expensive.

Ask pullers what type of track they want to pull on and 98% will say a power track.

Get out on a loose low traction track, and the men are quickly separated from the boys. HP doesn't matter if you can't use it.

Speed of the tractor doesn't make much difference until you get above 12 mph or so. (My observation from the seat of the sled.)

Moresmoke, I agree 100%!!!! on a power track, you can force those power boys down to 3 MPH, and they can still keep the sled moving on down the track after their RPMs get pulled down. Speed makes little difference. But, you put them on a soft track, that is where you even things out, because they can't use their power. I used to do pretty well with my slightly warmed up Ford when most tracks in the area were soft. Over the years a number of the soft tracks have had clay put on them to make the power boys happy. Now we have just a few soft tracks where I can still do well. The power boys love to agree with each other about how speed limits level the playing field. Sure, it does for them, but the stock or nearly stock tractor people are on a different level playing field a few floors down.

Every thing that pulls at our pulls is gasoline or LP and the club has tach and checks engine RPM. We allow 10% over in stock and 20% over in modified classes. In our area I don't know of any bodys tractor that is stock bored pulling tractor or not.

So many younger fellas have the $$$ and do not care about any rules they don't get caught breaking..( known no-a-days as "Fun")..

Those tractors are just like their automobile..just a TOY.

I am surprised not more are killed on their HotRod tractors..they are terribly unsafe operators..

I guess it makes them feel more "manly", is all I can see..

CAN'T PLEASE EVERYONE,NOT A ONE SIZE FITS ALL SPORT. Most problems come from clubs not enforcing the rules in place.

Every club is different ours is speed limited, 10% over stock hp, 1% over class weight. We can run up to 18.4 tires. The ones not following the rules really standout who are asked to weigh their tractors first thing after a win.
