Default Mark Hughes at the Butler Homecoming Truck and Tractor Pulls

Some videos from this weekend:

Friday night, they got started really late (close to 9 PM) and they had about 105 pulls to do. Mark pulled his truck in two categories, so we didn't get finished until after 1 in the morning.

Fortunately, the tractor pulls the next day went a lot smoother and Mark pulled his 830 tractor at around 1 PM, then we were out of there by 1:30.

If this tractor looks familiar, it's because he pulled it last year as well:

Yes.

Liquid calcium is added to tractor tires for extra weight right where you need it . Water weighs like 8 lbs per gallon . Liquid calcium is right at 10 lbs per gallon . So in theory , If you can get 10 gallons of calcium in each truck tire thats an extra 400 pounds of weight to put traction down to the ground . And it is not spread out over the springs on the truck . It is the tires them selves which is right where you need it .

The draw back is , calcium is rough on stuff , its corosive over an extended amoutn of time . Plus that much extra weight on the drive line parts is going to cause something to grenade itself. But Marks truck is a k30 . Which is the heaviest duty truck chevrolet ever built . Its got a dana 60 front axle which is virtually indestructable , and a corp 14 bolt rear axle which is pretty much bomb proof. The transfercase is a np205 which is a cast iron gear to gear case , not a chain drive like the 203 or 208. The transmission is a deep pan th 400 , the only stouter tranny out there for those trucks is the sm465 manual . If something did break itself it would have been a u joint i imagine . but with it just being an extra 100 pounds per tire , those one ton axles wouldve handled it no problem.



that clear it up for ya ? lol

Pfffttt yeah .. EVERYONE knows that all you have to go is glue a bag of calcium on your tires and it makes the tires heavier. The trick is not ripping the bag.
