The new Ghost Buster 5

From Oberharmersbach in South Germany, the Ghost Buster Pulling Team are working on a new 950kg Mini Rod Tractor at the moment.
The new Mini Rod gets a homemade 15CDV6 tube frame with a homemade ROP (Rollcage), homemade Dibond (aluminum composite plate) fenders and a homemade rear axle housing.
The Tractor receives a homemade Ford 9´´ inch rear axle with a homemade differential, a new billet Moser Engeneering aluminium center section from the USA, a ring and pinion gear from Richmond Gears (USA), homemade
planetary carrier housing with homemade planetaries, a new constructed homemade reverser with special made gears (currently in CAD construction) and a new homemade drivetrain. The Ford 9´´ inch rear axle comes out of their old Isotov TV3 turbine powered Mini Rod Tractor called Ghost Buster 2. They bought back the rear axle from Manfred Obruly (current owner of L´ Aspirateur) in Austria. The new Machine also get a new homemade single wheel brake system with Porsche components and homemade brake discs, a new 2 disc Crower centrifugal clutch with a size of 11´´ inch and a Browell aluminium clutch bell housing. The Schwarz Family purchased for their Mini a set of new BBS rims with Pioneer Giant Puller tyres. The drivers position on the new ride is more forward and center of gravety is lower. The Ghost Buster Team hopes to get a better balance with the Pioneer Giant tyres with those changes.
The Mini Modified will have an blown AJPE TFX V8 Hemi engine on methanol fuel. The power plant receives a aluminium billet AJPE TFX 2000 engine block with AJPE Stage 5 Hemi heads, Crane Cams camshafts with Manley valves and valve springs, a 4.5´´ Bryant crankshaft with BME billet rods and Arias pistons, a Pro Charger F3R-139 blower with an homemade 7 blade impeller wheel (built by the Gompie Team from the design of the Green Monster Pulling Team) and a homemade aluminium air intake funnel, a CNC milled aluminium gearbox housing with special
made gears and a homemade beltdrive for the Pro Charger, a homemade aluminium intake manifold, self made exhaust headers, a homemade aluminium fuel tank, a Rage fuel pump and a Mick´s Performance (Ryan Micke) EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection) system from the USA. The EFI system is the same system as they use on their turbocharged V8 Hemi powered Mini Modified Tractor called ,,Ghost Buster 4´´. Also the Green Monster Pulling Team from Füchtorf in Germany using the same EFI system on their blown Allison V12 Tractors called ,,Green Fighter´´, ,,Green Monster Stage
4´´ and ,,Green Monster Stage 5 Mitas Edition´´.
The Ghost Buster Team will compete with their new 950kg Mini Modified in the German Championship this year.
The first start of the new Ghost Buster 5 is planned for the 30th of April 2017 in Füchtorf, Germany.

The Ghost Buster Pulling Team would also like to give a big thanks to all their sponsors for the support and also to the Gompie Pulling Team from Maasland in the Netherlands.
