***Attention TTTPA pullers, specifically those running turbos***
Effective immediately - August 15, 2023
All classes running turbocharged engines, please see safety rule changes to be made before the next pull.
1) All turbocharged engines must have four (4) 1/2-inch bolts (Grade #5) in horizontal portion of exhaust pipe(s) as close to the turbo as possible.
Bolts to be installed 90 degrees to each other, within one inch of each other.
For clarification or questions please contact one of the Directors if needed. Thanks everyone for your cooperation.
All inline turbocharged engines are required to have a cable(s) placed between first and second cylinder through exhaust manifold port area. Cable must be a minimum of one (1) 3/8 manufactured pendant line with a rating of at least 3000 lb or more with a tag from the manufacture that indicates rated load capacity with swaged sockets.
Two (2) 3/8" cables with a minimum of 4 clamps at the splice or crimps with a coupler on each cable. Cable(s) must circle the entire head /block assembly with a maximum of 4" slack.
Reminder: New rules from last year are still in effect.
Diesel pullers are required to run cross bolts after the turbo for safety. Our insurance provider (USPA) is requiring everyone to run 1/2" diameter cross bolts, minimum of grade #5 now. (Grade #8 is encouraged)
We apologize for any inconvenience, but this is what it takes for us to be fully insured. Everyone, please be in compliance by the first pull in De Leon!
For questions, please contact Wayne or any of the directors.
Texas Truck and Tractor Pullers Association
The Texas Truck and Tractor Pullers Association was organized and sanctioned in 2007 by twenty founding members with the goal of reviving hotrod truck and tractor pulling in the state of Texas. A non-profit organization, TTTPA strives to provide safe, fun, family oriented entertainment.
Traveling across Texas fans can expect to see an array of unique pulling classes ranging from 2500+ horsepower blown alcohol two wheel drive trucks to small block powered hot rod tractors. Other classes include the heavy weight Hot Farm “smoker” tractors, high revving Pro Stock 4X4 trucks, 500 cubic inch Economy modified tractors, 1500 HP blown alcohol Pro Modified tractors, and some of the baddest Super Street Diesel 4X4 trucks in the country.
In 2022 TTTPA is sanctioning multiple events in towns across the state of Texas. Come see us hook to one of the awesome Bungart X-Factor sleds in a town near you.
