Why does it have cub cadet tires on it? I don't think you will be able to pull to much with them on.

I should have qualified the photo by saying that it left here with 8.3 x 24 Ag tires on it.
The guy transporting it was goofing around.

And I would bet if you used tires like that at the cub tug, you would out pull everyone else

Actually, I'm thinking that if you flipped the front axle tube with the knuckle tubes up, you'd have a cheap knock-off of GW's Rat Cub.

That sure would be the slow race winner. And a cheap alternative for a Howard creeper gear!
