The new Walk the Line

From Wadesville, Indiana in the USA, the Koester Racing Team have built a new 2050lbs Mini Rod Tractor during the last winter. The new Mini Rod received a Chrome-Moly tube frame, a Dana 60 rear axle with TRB planetaries, a TRB differential, a Profab transmission, homemade aluminium fenders and a Browell clutch bellhousing with a Molinari centrifugal clutch. The new tube frame and the Rollcage (ROP) was built by the Koester Racing Team, together with TRB Machine from Zeeland, Michigan. The drivers position on the new frame of Walk the Line is a little bit more forward, than on his both older brothers called ,,Beast of Burden´´ and ,,Footloose´´. The Team hopes to get a better balance with those changes.
The Tractor also got a set of new aluminium rims with new Pioneer Giant tyres.
The new Mini Rod called ,,Walk the Line´´ is powered by a Miner Bros. V8 Hemi engine with 8.3l capacity on methanol. The engine has a MBR 14-71 blower with a JBR Carbon Fiber injector, MBR Alcohol cylinder heads, homemade exhaust pipes, a Bryant billet crankshaft, Arias pistons and GRP billet rods, camshafts from Crane Cams, a MSD Pro Mag 44 ignition, a homemade fuel tank, a Waterman fuel pump and a Racepack datalogger.
The Koester Racing Team had a very successful season with this new Mini Rod. The driver of  ,,Walk the Line´´ Adam Koester won the NTPA Grand National title and the Bowling Green Ring this year.
