40 plus years ago in percentage pulls I did well and had some wins with a 830 gas, usually in 3rd COM as no shifting was allowed. The tractor did best at about 8400-8500 lbs. and had 16.9X38 tires. 4020 owners were shocked and in total disbelief.

My dad and I pull one. You want to go in the fastest gear you can for the weight. For us on our track 3rd for 6500 and 7500, 2nd for 8500 and 9500 and 1st for 10500. It all depends how much bite the track has. You want it to pull hard enough to make the torque converted work. Do not shift out of COM

Jim, Do you start the sled in direct drive and then shift to COM when it starts pulling real hard?
