Boy oh boy Chad, I gotta hear this!!! You got big expectations!!! Why not lighter? 18.4x34 will look great on the old girl. Keep me informed. The neighbors ZA sits on their bailer in our field waiting for a stretch of dry weather. Mine sits under the pine trees with a hole clear through the crankcase. It was a decent parts machine for the price.

It should do better this time out, last year it was sitting on an old worn out set of very hard 16.9 34's, barely no lug on the tire, made 2 rounds with it with 2 drivers, put it back on the trailer. It just would not grab hold of the street, and that was at 5500 lbs, ran 3rd gear, still could not make it lug down and grab hold, just spun. If it works out, ther may be a few ticked off AC guys!

Chad, that motor must be healthy! A model U is usually pretty decent in 5500-6500. Pulling blacktop?

It runs good, bone stock, at 43hp. Deadweight pulling is not a HP game, it is all in the balance and driving, finding the throttle in the right rpm to launch with out slipping tires. in this club, a U would be seen in over 8500, just cause they have way too much power to hook up that light, seen a few find that out last year. Most cases, if it runs great, can handle a sudden load put on the engine, good softer tires,, you may have a contender. Wont know till tommorrow! ChadS
