There are motorsports in this world that many people laugh at but in actually are brutally awesome. Modified garden tractor pulling is one of them. These guys make ridiculous power out of factory based engines and machines like the one in the video below really drive the point home. The title of the video claims that this engine is being sprayed and as angry as it is the thing may actually be breathing the good stuff. That being said, the front mounted bottle is likely a prop and not actually feeding the engine but what do we know, right? Not being up on the rules of this madness means that our literacy regarding power adders in the class is nil. Does anyone out there know?
We are guessing this is a hot rodded Kohler V-twin engine. We have seen dyno videos of these things making like 70-80hp. The overall look of the operation is pretty great as well. Between the scale sized sled and the driver in his fire jacket and 1970s-spec open faced helmet, it is BangShifty gold the whole way though.
We think this guy largely nailed the setup. Yes, it pulls the nose a little high on the hit but once he gets some wheel speed doing, the tractor gets with the program and hustles down the course. Gotta be fun as hell to drive, right?
