The Screamin´ Bobcat Pulling Team from Ijsselmuiden in the Netherlands has sold their 2050lbs Mini Rod Tractor called ,,Bobcat Jr´´ to Joe Eder (owner and driver of the Mod called ,,Geico 75th Edition) from North Collins, New York in the USA. The Mini got a new look and a new name during the winter months. The new name of the Tractor is Geico Jr. now.
The Tractor has a 25CrMo4 tube frame and Rollcage, a Ford 9´´ inch Vreeman rear axle, carbon fiber fenders, a 8´´ inch Molinari centrifugal clutch with a Browell clutch bell housing, a 2 speed gearbox from Vreeman Special Products and a set of new Pioneer Giant Puller tyres. The Mini Rod is powered by an Sassy Racing V8 Hemi engine on methanol. The engine has BAE billet aluminium block with Veney cylinder heads, a Mike Janis supercharger with a Mike Janis carbon fiber injector, a Sassy Racing fuel system, a dry sump lubrication and a Racepak data logger.
The Tractor made his maiden voyage with the new colors at the NTPA Winter Nationals in Cloverdale, Indiana last weekend.
Joe Eder will compete in the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League (Silver Series) and on some NTPA Grand National rounds this year.
