His diesel and our diesel which is a twin to his motor will be @ the Monster Mowdown in Ohio this summer. We will also both be @ the keystone nationals this coming Friday @ Harrisburg, PA. You guys need to see this in person to appreciate it.

Hasn't happened @ pulls I've been @. The sled operators are pro's. All they do is run the sled. They don't even pull. All the pulls we go to have 13' from the full pull mark to the hay bales/wall/concrete dividers. Prolly fall off ans hit your neck. I did see a tractor break an axle and turn sideways and throw the driver off. The sled guy hit the brakes and pulled the kill switch immediately.

I never flipped one (been close).
Had the sled break once, everyone realized what happened. Just kept backing off the throttle til I got it stopped.
Had a chain break one time too, under full power. Ever with the engine killed it went probably 20 feet on the wheelie bars. Quite a ride.

And Drew, I will be in Harrisburg this week for all the pulling.
