    The Roberts pulling team from my home town put Ryans Toy II and Double Stuffed on a ship and shipped them over seas. They won the Unlimited Super stock class with Ryans Toy II (Case IH MX270). I guess it's the first time in ten years a US tractor has one over there. The team at this time has six pulling tractors and one garden tractor.:usflag:

    That stuff I consider kinda lame and [​IMG] .......... those modded "tractors" are just dragsters with big "tractor" tires. Give me REAL tractors!

    You have no idea what goes into one these things.They probally have more money in one engine then you will make in the next 2 years.

    It is astonishing the weight they pull as well.
    They may not be a tractor ,but "Lame" is not even in the ball park.

    One tractor alone can cost between $200,000 and $300,000. Each of the Unlimited Super stocks have a computer system on them. It tells the driver how the motor ran after each pass. I helped Johnny print of the pages once after they made a pass down the track. It was a bunch of pages for only 13 seconds of info. They are pretty neat machines to be around.

    Alot of the guys run Blown hemis.Not much different from a top fuel dragster or a Funny car.
    Each engine can cost 70k+ a piece complete.
