I know this all depends on sleigh design and track conditions but I am curious as to what you guys think would be adequate horsepower to pull 6 mph at 5000 lbs with 18.4 x 38 top cut tires. Would 150 hp be enough?

I run 100 horsepower in 5500# at 4&5mph on bigger 16.9X38. It's just a bit weak if you ask me. I place consistently, but it's on a pretty easy going sled with a 5-6ft chain. I'd be happy and back in 3rd gear territory with 125 hp. With 18.4, tough sled, short chain, 5000#, and 6mph, 150 would be quite comfortable.
