Wide open, slightly downhill, on a cool day. Note the smiley face under my speed!

Next time strip her down - no lights, remove the muffler, 1 gallon of gas, remove the lift for the grade blade, crouch down low

I bet you will get 7.25 mph no problem.

I though about doing some mods to increase the numbers, but I'm worried about high speed aerodynamic lift at much above 7.25 mph. What's worse, my town refused to upgrade the radar speed sign to one that read in tenths. Go figure.

The yellow arms are for a 54-A blade with which I plow our driveway. I find it easier to leave the brackets in place and just remove a couple of pins to drop the plow each spring than to remove and store the whole mess.

Maybe, if i put the blade back on and tilted it all the way back, I could create kind of a splitter / front wing that would create some downforce and help with my high speed lift issue.

Good point. No sense being reckless.

I don't want to brag or anything, but I took my Cub out yesterday, got her out on the highway and let her rip. I don't have a fancy, shmancy radar sign but I do have a tachometer that indicates my speed as well as engine rpm's. Once up to highway speed, trying to keep a low profile and tucking in my elbows to reduce wind resistance, I was able to get my '53 up to a blistering 8.2 mph!! :big afro:

Sounds like the Cub Tug just got a new Left Turn oval competition.

Using a Garmin as a speedometer I was was able get Harley up to 13 mile an hour until I backed off. The bumpy barnyard made it feel like I was riding a rodeo bull.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Not sure how fast Ralph had Flamey going when he disconnected the governor, but I do know he was doing some drifting while running some donuts.

Gotta make sure your front end is tight and aligned otherwise your teeth will be rattling.
