Will a single tire still spin (one rear wheel off the ground-trans in neutral) on a shimmed rear?


If the answer is yes have them prove it.

Bet they would run out of power riding a brake. The full size tractors,just touching a brake for a sec slows them down a lot. They have way more power than they need too.
But I agree the GT pullers look like clowns.

You gotta do what works. Every component adds weight, which takes away from movable weights. Pretty amazing all ot takes is scooting in the seat to make it turn going down the track.

Every time I see them do that I think about the old days on my 3 wheeler in the mud.. Little butt motion "even with way more horsepower" is all it took to get going again.

That,s the only way you steer. Even with a totally locked rear the one tire with better traction is going to push you, so you to butt weight the weaker traction tire. And you have to be quick. Mike

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
