great idea, one ? how would you set up rule for example a g john deere? most dont run over 1500rpm,what about steel fly wheel,scatter blankets,4750 wt is make able, wt to spare. i would love to try but those wouldnt let me hook. i have all the required safety equipment an preach it at any pull i go to,kinda restricting to only certain types of tractors.

I don't think this is a class where many G's, including yours, would do well.

If there's no speed limit and no RPM limit, the Farmalls with RD's will be cruizing at 12-20MPH, your 8MPH just won't cut it...

If there was an RPM limit or a speed limit, it would be a different story. With neither, it would be tough, and no, I don't think you need a scatter blanket at 20% RPM's, but the general theme is "open", so most will run it as hard as they can and you need to emphasize safety.

Not saying a JD can't be built to run that class, but it will take a lot more coin to get one to run and stay together than using the "Lego" method of putting a high HP, High RPM motor in like the other brands can do.

its simple, you wouldnt set a G up like that. itd be simpler/safer to build a tube chassis with a 466 n G sheetmetal. this is not antique pulling, its primative ntpa thinking with modern day acceptance. I know rd powered IHs can make 4000lbs, MMs can make 4500 with room to play, Olivers n JDs wouldnt compete well in these classes and they know it. History is trying to repeat itself, and the thought process hasnt changed in 25yrs. you wouldnt put your unexperienced 14yr old on an open rpm tractor would ya? would you let the same kid race flat out in a viper or new corvette would ya?

i agree on the deeres, but why wouldn't the olivers compete? they'll make that weight easy, can run either big cubes low rpms, or low cubes big rpms. i've seen olivers run 12 mph+ at that weight.
