I run 93 octane non oxygenated gas 

I used to run 93 in my old pulling truck(pre ethanol days). It would ping like crazy otherwise. Had a guy notice but he thought I was running race gas. Them fellers are going to be mad. Your not supposed to beat Cases and 80 JD's with a 560. They won't let 560's in antique classes here. Straight to Farm Stock with the big boys.

Yes  but you better increase the air pressure if you plan to put that many on the C

All those guys that didn't beat you are going to create rules to eliminate you and your 560.

They should do something, never seen a pull where someone was 10ft ahead of someone and 20ft on the rest in the same class.

I spose they could outlaw ih tractors and give all the other guys  a chance , I listened to alot of guys that pulled for years and took all there advice, the guys with new tires dug down to deep, the guys with to.much weight up front spun out, if someone has a legal tractor that is set up right to pull then that's the guy who will win

?? Win or lose, just give it your best. Life is full of loss unfortunately. (I know you were kidding there).  My question is...was the radio on or is that a monitor on there?

Good job Rusty.    Just remember the target is on your back now.   There are lots of people that have no idea how to set up a tractor.   They just think you need horsepower to win.

The radio was junk and I restored it to be a compartment, it is empty with a door in the front,i had my phone, a bottle of water and some other odds and ends in it ,it is very handy and looks good,
