This issue is probably going to fade away over time. Almost all of the sleds in our area have distance and live speed readouts at the end of the track. Even bigger pulls like Tunica have adopted this too. It works really well, is easy to record for results and there is no question about how fast any one tractor is going. It is also a safety thing in that drivers are looking down the track instead of staring at the dash.

Maybe you can help me understand the use of tachometers. What percentage of tractors have them? When do they use them? Why do they need them? When they started their use on tractors I don't recall any crying about the advantage a tach has over a non tach tractor. I took a little survey at Harrisburg pull and I didn't see any tractors in the 5.5 MPH class without one. Do they look at these before you pull or when you are done pulling? If you are watching these as you are pulling, these are a real safety hazard while looking at your dash. I think they should be outlaw. Come on guy's, this is tractor pulling. The sport will continue to change. Any sport demands an advantage (oversize pistons, stroking, shaving, aluminum whatever, tire brands)
let it be pullers preference if he desires to use a speed device and don't try to find fault with them. Enough rules!!! JMHO Ron

How much for one of those setups? We have the agritronics sled monitor, but no big screen for the end of the track.

The 18in tall 3 digit MPH display from Agritronix is $1800. This will work with your existing sled monitor.

About what I figured. I've thrown the idea out there, but the last couple years have been a finacial tornado. Undoubtedly much better this year.
