Hot Head workshop news

The Hot Head Pulling Team from Germany, are buildinga new Mini Rod at the moment.
What the news, what is different to the old chassis? The new one,has a 42CrMo4 chassis, the driver's position is more forward and the center of gravety is lower. The team hopes to ger a better balance with the Cepek tyres with those changes. The rear axle is newly constructed and lighter. The new wider carbon fenders are lighter than the old GFK fenders. Also, the tractor gets a gearbox and a new V8 engine with a few hundred horsepower more.Which new V8 engine the Team will use, isn´t sure at the moment.
