The new Swedish Iron Toy

From Ljungbyhed in Sweden, the Mini Rod of Emil and Olof Roth called ,,Swedish Iron Toy´´ is ready for the season. The Turbocharged Tractor received a new homemade SSAB Docol tube frame with a new SSAB Docol Rollcage (ROP), new Polycarbonat fenders, a Ford 9´´ rear axle with a new homemade rear axle housing, ZF planetaries and a Vreemann differential from the Netherlands.
The drivers position on the new frame is around 60mm more forward and the center of gravety is around 50mm lower than on the old frame. The Team hopes to get a better balance with those changes. The Team also purchased a set of new rims with Cepek tyres from CM Pulling tyres in the USA. The Turbocharged BAE V8 Hemi engine on the Mini Rod got a new larger methanol fuel pump, new bigger injectors and a new oil tank from Aviaid for the new dry sump lubrication.
The Nasty Toy Pulling Team will compete in Swedish Championship and in the Euro Cup this year.
