I believe that most are using certain GPS units that read low speeds accurately.

I have a GPS that gives you your speed going down the road!! Why would that not work at low speeds??

GPS work fine outside but are like cell phones do not work inside.They may be a sceond behind so you need to be back of the speed limit by a couple of tenths.I have used on for about 3 years and works great for me.

Don't get the speed read outs at the end of the track. Just takes all the skill out of driving.

I AGREE!!!! It really feels great when you get the horn just briefly, just after you applied more throttle, and just before the load slows you down just enough without backing off, and you did it just by the feel and sound of your tractor. I haven't had it work that way all that often, so it feels good when it works.

It doesn't really matter to me at since I never follow the speed limit. Speed limit antique pulls are good for tuning and nothing else....

Every pull I've been to with a speed limit your disqualified if you blow the horn after 75ft. You must not place very well.

The only reason I will go to a antique pull with a speed limit is if it's durning the week or there is nowhere else to pull. Like I said, I use them for tuning and nothing else.

The last one I pulled at I think I pulled 6 hooks and got DQed in all of them, didn't really matter to me. I think the antique pulls like that are a joke so I don't bother taking them seriously.
