I thought of olcowhand when I saw this pulling down the track.

Quite the run he had going there.  And I bet the asphalt will really stress out a drive train!

I just wish I had the money it took to build that machine!  For me, the little diesels are as much or more fun to watch than the big boys!

They're just as much fun to pull dan. Yes it does at times get pricey but the most important thing to spend the money on is the drivetrain. That transmission needs only the best to hold up to all that torque and power and not to mention if theres any dips in the track that causes the tractor to hop that adds even more stress on the axles. Sometimes in my videos when you see me hop ill back out of it and bring it to a stop as fear of breaking the axle. One guy that pulls with us broke off a midewest super cub axle when he started hopping and his torque range wound up and sheered the axle clean off the weld! I have video of it happening.
