Well so far so good this year! The SuperStock machine has been in the top 2 spots all year. Just took another 2 and. And who says you can't pull with a hydro??? What ever you do don't tell that to my 125 LGT!!
He thinks he's a standard shift LOL. He also managed another 2nd. I would love to see the point's standings to see where we stand.
Next year should be even more fun as we should have a tractor for 2 more classes. 8" SuperStock and the open class.

I have videos I just need to get on the wife's computer and I will post them. We did REAL GOOD today!!! The track was like sugar!! The LGT 125 crushed them with a 106.6 ft pull in the pull off closest to Kyle was his cousin Diesel with the cub at 101.11. It was hot!! But fun.
We also won SuperStock as well by about a foot. There was a little drama at the end as the measuring system had a glitch, but it all worked out in the end.

OK a few vids.

Here is the winning pull at the Red Apple Farm this weekend and it was a full pull. The Fords ended up 1-2-3 with a cub coming in 4 the and a Roper 5th.

Helmet Cam!!!

 Tell ya what, you buy  it and we'll fly it !!

 Would love to have one of those Go Pro cameras!!

 Yesterday both tractors took second places Not t bad for the stock 125 that I was on in the photo above. that tractor is sooo stock its not funny, and he keeps right on pulling with the best of them.

  The SuperStock machine is doing much better since the tune up and timing re-do DOH! You can't believe the power difference you gain by just adjusting the timing on a Kohler V twin!! Next thing will be gearing for it, it could use a bit lower gear I think to help keep the revs up at the end . We have awesome traction and can stall the engine at the end :thumbs:

 All these second places are starting to get old we want firsts!! :D  :poke:  :smilewink:

Are you guys allowed to have work or no work done to these? If so you could start off with a steel flywheel for some more rpms and heavier valve springs. Could probably have the heads flowed or put 25 heads on them and a bigger carb as well.
