Lorne, you may want to get in touch with West Jet.Air Canada.etc. and let them know they could use a lot smaller runways if they'd fly tail heavy!

Simply buy a "reliable engine".."tune it properly".. ==zero landing issues!

No matter the length of the field!!

You mean like a brick? Or super positive traction to the ground?

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Dale sure the Old iron won the battle in that but tug of wars are also skill. He waited until the green one started spinning then he started to pull. One the green one spins its game over for the green and game on for the old brute.

Good example here. Obviously the ol' duramax has more pull than a light crossover but still pulls him

The steam tractor is only 18hp. My GP176 is rated at 19!

The demonstration is on torque.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Bradley. all the hype is hp/weight ratio now a days.

I would say that's all gear torque. True comparison torque would be crankshaft to crankshaft.

If you took a modern day tractor up against the steam boat might be a different storey
