i don't know much about it, but the best i can tell you is decide where you want to pull and find out what their rules are before you build a machine you might not be able to compete with. also once you're in with those guys they will be able to guide you in what to build and how to build it. hope this helps.

oh and welcome to GTTalk!!

:wave: mitchell660 Welcome to GTTalk! It's good to have you here! The only pulling I have ever done is stock classes as I have none that I'm willing to modify at this point. I do wish you luck in your project though! We have a few members here that do some pulling and I'm sure that they'll be along soon enough.

Go for it. Haven't ever seen any snowmobile pullers down here. I have seen some youtube videos though. The motorcycle powered ones are popular around here. They had a total built from scratch frame with garden tractor sheet metal. One was chain driven to a solid rear axle. The other was a shaft drive motor to a narrowed car rear end. The owner was going to convert the shaft drive to a chain drive. Never got to pull with him again, so I don't know how it turned out.
