I pull a 57 600 (same engine as a 500 rated a 1500 rpm rather than 1350, and 6 speeds compared to the 4 in the 500) that is running around 80hp. (4.25 bore and 930 intake manifold and valves) In 3 mph classes on a tight track I can do OK in the 8500 and 9500 classes in first gear. If its a good track I use all my power in the 9500 and it can be difficult to get enough weight on the front in the 8500. Looser tracks I'm better in the 9500- 10500. This is an out of the field, full fendered, still has PTO hydraulics and power steering. It takes it all and a light weighing scales to get it in an 8000 pound class with me on it. The 500 should be a few pounds lighter though. A bare stock 500 might do ok on a looser track in a 3mph 8000 or 8500 pound class if you can get it balanced. A row crop tractor is easier to make make a short hitch and nice handy weight brackets for.

This is a 10500 class I think I took 2nd and I'm pretty sure I stalled it. Since this pic I made the front weight bracket bigger and it still gets filled up sometimes.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I'm sure anything is possible Aluminum wheels, lightweight frontend, Loose PTO and hydrailics and the cast Radiator tank, big fenders there is a lot of weight to lose. I think there is 2500 lbs in there. And the club may allow 5600 or 57 in the 5500 class. What kind of class are you thinking about?
