The new Fully Loaded

The Fully Loaded Pulling Team from Dellroy, Ohio in the USA, together with Karlen Motorsports from Minvera, Ohio have built a new Component Super Stock Tractor during the last winter. The Super Stock got a completely new chrome-moly tube frame with a new Rollcage, a new hydraulic steering a Humpco billet rearend and a set of new Firestone Puller 2000 HP tyres with Midwest aluminium rims. The John Deere 8345R hood and fenders on the new chassis were took over of the old Fully Loaded Super Stock Tractor. The rearend has a Humpco billet aluminium center section with a billet aluminium differential, a special made ring and pinion gear and billet aluminium planetaries carrier housing with special made planetaries. Also the reverser and the driveline were built by Humpco Machine in the USA. The new ride got a 11´´ inch Crower centrifugal clutch with 5 discs, a aluminium flywheel and a Trick Titanium clutch bellhousing.
The drivers position on the new Karlen Motorsport Chassis is more forward and the center of gravity is lower than on his previous Chassis. The Team around Jeff Hothem hopes to get a better balance with those changes.
The new ride is powered by an 6 cylinder John Deere engine with 640cui. on methanol. The engine was completely built by Riverside Engine Inc. in Tiffin, Ohio. The engine has a JD stock block with a steel billet crankshaft, billet aluminium rods and pistons, a Riverside Engine Inc. aluminium cylinderhead with over head cam design, a 3 Holset HX 82 charger 2 Stage system from Blackbourn Racing Components, a MSD Pro Mag 44 ignition and a Racepak data logger.
The Team is absotlutly happy with their 1st and 3rd place finish at the Lucas Oil Pro Pulling League opener in Ansonia, Ohio. A great start for Jeff Hothem and his Team with the new Chassis into the new season.
The Fully Loaded Pulling Team will compete with their new Component Super Stock Tractor in the Lucas Pro Pulling League (Champions Tour) this year.
