Ordered a pair yesterday to try? Hope to get them before the weekend, as we're gonna have company on the test track :) I'm also going to bring along my diesel and see how he does? My brother wants to see how it pulls? As do I :)

Got some ags in the mail last night, and depending on the pull in our area ( all kinds of different rules and clubs :) ) we can run 3600 to 4500 rpm. 3600 seems to be the sweet spot for that bone stock 301 any more revs and it doesn't like to pull hard and lays down. That might work good on a slippery track, but not on the test track, it has wicked bite.

3600 should be the stock rpm's the motor came with? That motor should be able to handle that big hydro opened up just make sure its under a load lol I cant even remember how many times ive seen blocks exploding and pistons trying to learn how to fly. Best of luck to you in the future! :thumbs:

Have a look, with the governor reset to 3600 from 4500: I think it does better . Verdict is still out on the tires though, they may be digging to deep and Hench filling up the sled? Today we will have another tractor to com pair it with :)

Very nice pull! More rpm's and better tires= success..Those tires seem to do great just a little more weight up front :smile1:

Well.... that 125 got its arss handed to it by its younger brother an LGT 100 covered side!!!!!! BAD BAD!!! We pulled my brothers 100 out of the weeds, took off the 50" deck and moused on hitch for something to compair
it with and where the 125 stopped you could hook up the 100 and drive away with the sled!!!! Outrageous! With the same tires as we took them off one and put them on the other . No video as I didn't have it maybe tomorrow??

Might be a valuable lesson here??? We will see?

Are you saying the 100 did that with only the same tires, no added weight? Whoooobooooy! Welll, the good news is you can now concentrate on the other tractor now!

No weight was equal roughly, might have been lighter if anything? Only thing I can figure is the frame is different between them and the "hang" is definately different . (Hang; That is the way the rear axle is attached)
