That's not a bad weekend. I wish we had big pulls like that come near by me. I would go watch probly not pull just starting this is my first year. Never thought it would be so much work in building one of these. But I did go overboard abit I wanted to have a good foundation when I move up in classes without tearing my tractor back apart.

Its always a good thing to make room and things easier. Trust me ive been pulling for 16 years going on 17. I started with a sears custom 10xl. Then moved onto a cub and won 3 years in a row with it. Then every other year for awhile. Then got into the vtwin class then onto my diesel. Now my girlfriend runs the twin and shes gonna try a run with the diesel this year and if she likes it then were building her one
