    Oooops, forgot to add the #1 reason why I bought the 3038 over the 3032:

    The dealer had the 3038e in-stock and made me a better deal on it than what another dealer wanted for the 3032, so it all depends on what kinda deal you can get.

    OK now continue talking about funny cars and we can get this thread up to 28 pages.
    (I'm kidding don't anyone get mad.. I actually found the thread very interesting)

    If the air intake on the turbo is on the front of the tractor, that model will get better "traction" than the non turbo model. The added suction from the turbo will pull the tractor forward.

    Yes, I have noticed the effect.

    Not as much, I tried standing up and farting one time I got stuck............ Didn't work.
    Next time I am going to turn around and pee and see if that works. I will report back.

    More than double ... probably a lot more than peeing, but that varies with age.
