New frame for Daffy

From Bryne in Norway, the Daffy Pulling Team around Frode Horpestad are currently working on their Light Modified Tractor called ,,Daffy´´. The Light Mod receives a new Domex 700 wedge frame with the Rollcage (ROP) of the old tube frame, a new homemade hydraulic steering and a new homemade sheet metal rear axle housing. The old tube frame broke durin the Pull Off pass on the Euro Cup round in Lidköping, Sweden this year. The Team hopes to get a better balance with this new Domex wedge frame. The rear axle of the Tractor also gets new lighter hub reductions with new special made Mercedes planetaries and completely new brakes. The fenders and the side covers of the engine will be the same as on the old one.
The 6 cylinder John Deere engine on alcohol also will be completely disassemble and checked during the winter.
The Daffy Pulling Team will compete in Norwegian Championship and in the Euro Cup next year.
The first start after those changes is planned for the May of 2017 in Bryne, Norway.
