Changes at De Jong Special

The Light Modified Tractor called ,,De Jong Special´´ from Alphen in the Netherlands got some changes during the winter. The Dutch Team decided to modifiy their Tractor after the two crash landings at the Euro Cup event in Buk (P) and Putten (NL) last year. The tube frame of the twin Rover V12 powered Light Mod Tractor was completley revised. The Team built almost a new tube frame for the Light Mod tractor during the last months. The frame also receive a new constructed front axle with new smaller front tyres. The both Rover V12 tank engines are 15cm now more forward on the frame with this new built front axle. The last year newly built Crossbox is now again further back on the Tractor, because of the two crash landings and the good pass with the old Crossbox at the EC in Brande (DK) last year. The Team hopes to get a better balance with those changes. The Team also reduced the weight in the driveline, on the gears and the driveshafts. Last but not least, the engines receive a new high voltage battery for a better spark in the ignitions. The De Jong Special Team will compete in the Dutch Grand National Championship and in the Euro Cup this year. The first start after those changes is planned for the 23rd of January 2016, at the Indoor Tractor Pull in Zwolle, the Netherlands.
