The rearend of the new ride is a Ford 9´´ inch rear axle with a aluminium center section, a billet aluminium differential, a special made ring and pinion gear, Willwood brakes, billet aluminium planetary carrier housing with special built planetaries. All the parts of the rear axle were produced by Bennie Vreeman of Vreeman Special Products in Neede, the Netherlands.
The new Hella Lambada 9 2.0 also received a Vreeman driveline with a Vreeman reverser, a 8´´ inch Molinari centrifugal clutch with 3 discs and a Browell aluminium clutch bellhousing. 
The power plant of the new vehicle is a BAE V8 Hemi engine on methanol.

Some parts like the clutch, reverser, the rear wheels, the fenders etc. were took over of the old Hella Lambada Tractor.
The Lambada Pulling Team compete with their new Hella Lambada 9 2.0 in the Dutch Grand National Championship this year. The Dingerink Family is very satisfied with the new Mini Rod so far.
