Outlaw them Leroy, they are definitely an advantage but they take away from the skill needed to pull tractors.

Neither Remus or Oakley allow them.

Glad to hear that they are an advantage it makes me feel good. Let"s not outlaw the speed devices because these young pullers full of hemmroides (or is it steroid"s)like to show MOUCHO MEGA. Let"s outlaw TACHOMETERS, make everyone wear ear protection, (zero sound)and everyone wear TRIVOCALS so we can level the playing field. I came up with the idea of the wheel because (like the song says I"m not as good as I once was)pacing my tractor, listening to engine (I have 30% Hearing) seeing best areas of track. Those of you that don"t like the speed devices, go with your skill. But don"t take away a something that is helping (and I am seeing it) of the older generation of pullers that still want to compete. Look around guys and see how many 60-70 even 80 year old guys and gals
are pulling. Go ahead and outlaw them if it makes you feel good but I seen this coming and I dare someone to take a radar gun from a spectator with a display board held up of a tractor he wants to show speed of. His 1ST amendment right. JMHO. MAY GOD BLESS! I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA FOR WHICH IT STANDS ONE NATION UNDER GOD WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL.

Right mike! He is absolutely old school! My favorite thing is his 400 with the hydrolics and everything still on it.

Why would you complain about speed monitoring devises the speed limit is slow and you want to get as close as possible to it. I don't run one on my tractor and can pull with the NATPA. If you have a smooth running engine that isn't out of control you can just run the speed limit classes with out a monitor Good competition is want it is all about. why are you complaining about them.

I'm not complaining, its called an opinion. Anyone can pull with NATPA, most people winning are using speedometers because they are an advantage. Like I stated before they take away from the skill needed to pull and in my "opinion" I wish they were not allowed.

Is that why you use one? Should be personal preference. Too many rules spoil the club.

I have operated our sled CAFPC for thousands of hooks over the years. You can see it first hand from there. Watching the speed on Ag-tronics. The guys with the devices are able to hold a speed a tenth or so under the limit. Without they are normally 2-4 tenths under being careful. Sled pulling has a lot do with how fast you can go at the end of the pull. Sometimes a couple of tenths can make the difference in a 6" victor or loss. These devices are for sale and anyone can own one. I personally don't care. I don't have one as I like the challenge of staying under without the use of one. But this is what I have seen from a sled operators view.

Thanks, Leroy Nurenberg
