Well, Today I got some practice pulls in at a swap meet here locally. Bought a few things too but will talk about that later... :wink:

Lets put it this way, She will pull 80lbs no problem but not quite to a full pull (30'), she stops about 5' short. I did some gearing changes twice with the same weight distribution and no change. All though with the 16T pinion change was the best for the truck, it was my last run and was the best for producing wheel speed but still came up short of a full pull.

So, I am ditching brushed and going to put my CC brushless system in it and will get all the wheel speed I need. I should have done this from the get go but who knew, right? Anyway, I learned a ton from the guy's today and can't wait to run it again on the 10th. i will gewet a full pull and in a hurry. :wink:

I should add that t for pulling weight up front is your friend, especially in the 7lb class and it has to be adjustable on the fly. So I will be making more changes to the layout to meet my goal.

I also forgot to mention too that they start the first pull at 100 lbs and if their is a tie, they add more weight until a winner has emerged.

PULLING CAN BE FUN AS LONG AS YOU ONLY HAVE 2 OR3 PULLER ANYMORE THEN THAT IT

BECOMES A LOT OF WORK AND THEN THE FUN GOES AWAY WHEN I WAS PULLING A LOT I

COULDN'T VISIT MY FRIEND I HAD TO STAY WITH THE PULLER TO MAKE SURE THEY WERE CHARGED

UP AND READY TO RACE BUT NOW WITH 2 YOU CAN GET YOUR CHARGER HOOKED UP GO AND VISIT

YOUR FRIEND CHECK AND SEE IF ANYONE IS SELLING ANYTHING AND WALK A ROUND AND THEN BACK

TO YOUR TRUCKS AND SO ON.

Thanks gentleman!

My biggest feat was the rear weight holder. I was having a heck of a time trying to figure out how to mount it. I decided to drill holes and then Dremel and file the square holes to fit over the chassis rails. It fit the first time with out having to re-file. I was so happy! I had to take the whole front end apart to get it over the rails. It also forced me to relocate so of the electronics which I think looks better and moved it to the center more.
