Ghost Buster 5 is ready !

After a lots of work during the last months and weeks, the new 950kg / 2095lbs. Mini Modified Tractor of the Ghost Buster Pulling Team from Oberharmersbach in South Germany is ready. The new Ghost Buster 5 got a homemade 15CDV6 tube chassis with a homemade 15CDV6 Rollcage and a homemade steel rear axle housing. All the sheet metal parts for the frame were laser cut by Krämer Brennteile in Hofstetten, Germany. The learned welder Lubomir Franz from Oberharmersbach made the completely welding work on the new chassis during the last winter. The Ford 9´´ inch rearend comes out of the old Isotov TV3 Turbine powered Mini Mod called ,,Ghost Buster 2´´. The rear axle has a homemade differential with a new billet Moser Engeneering aluminium center section, a ring and pinion gear from Richmond Gears, homemade planetary carrier housing with homemade planetaries, a new homemade single wheel brake system with Porsche components and homemade brake discs. The new homemade fenders of the Mini were made from Dibond (aluminum composite plate). The company called ,,Werbepart´´ from Steinach-Kinzigtal made all the design work and the foil for the new Dibond fenders. The new ride also got a new homemade driveline with a Lenco reverser, a new 11´´ inch Crower centrifugal clutch with 2 discs and a Browell aluminium clutch bell housing. Normely they had planned to use a new homemade billet aluminium reverser with special made gears for the Tractor. The GB Team decided to drive for the moment with a Lenco reverser. But the new homemade reverser lies in their workshop and is almost done. 
The Schwarz Family purchased for their Mini a set of new BBS rims with Pioneer Giant Puller tyres.
The new Ghost Buster 5 is powered by an EFI AJPE V8 Hemi engine with Pro Charger on methanol.
The engine received a aluminium billet AJPE TFX 2000 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´´ inch 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 and a Rage methanol fuel pump.

Ryan Micke of Mick´s Performance from Wentzville, MO in the USA has built the EFI (Electronic Fuel Injection) system for the V8 engine.
They also have with SolidCAM a new sponsor on the Tractor. SolidCAM has over 30 years of expertise in CAM development and applications. SolidCAM is the leading Integrated CAM software - seamlessly integrated in SOLIDWORKS and Autodesk Inventor.
The Ghost Buster Team will compete in the German Championship with the new Tractor next year.
The maiden voyage of the new Ghost Buster 5 is planned for the 24th of September 2017 at the German Championship finals of the Mini Mod division in Schlechtenwegen, Germany

The Ghost Buster Pulling Team would also like to give a big thanks to all their sponsors for the support and also to all the people who were involved in this new project !

Goin' to a land down under...

"... Sascha, there are two Aussies  coming your way who want to watch the pull in Eext and buy a pulling tractor. Can you help them a little?"
That's the kind of incoming questions I really like.
"Oh yes, I sure can!"
So that one day this summer Chris and his cousin were heading from "the motherland" (Ireland) to the north western plains of Europe to see some pulls.
All nice and fine and then the north European summer spoiled it all and the pull in Eext was cancelled and instead of meeting at the event, we decided for them to come directly to Westerstede.
What I didn't really expect was Chris being kicked out at our local bus station by his cousin, who has no interest in pulling at all and went on to Hamburg.
I then got a picture of our market square with "That's where I am" on my phone at work.
So, taking time off I went to get Chris and wow...
I mean I think I do speak and understand english rather well. But getting used to this "Hi mate ol' cock - how are you" and the rest of all that Aussie slang took me like two days to understand.
So, after some steaks ("...will you keep that fine meat on the grill some more time!"), Irish Whisky and lots of pulling videos, I made Chris decide, that staying here at my house for a week and then going to a local Hot Farm pull and the Euro Cup in Putten the weekend after would probably make up for the missed event in Eext.
A) because he would see how small our little events are and that you can lay down a good show with less than 1000 hp
B) to see how big and professional it can get
Bascially - showing what a complete "pulling scene" is all about and that it's not only the tip of the iceberg.
And then we also had this issue of Chris wanting a tractor for a pretty reasonable amount of money.
So I did some checking around in our local scene of what would be for sale.
Top notch equipment for that kind of the money was out of the question, but the Red Devil team from northern Friesland thought they would part from their "Red Devil", a nice hot farm tractor, for about that kind of money.
So, Australia runs Pro Stocks with 466 cui engines, basically based upon UK and US tractors and open rpms while the little Red Devil is a 358 cui, rpm limited tractor, based upon a German built 1246 IHC.
So first thing was to figure out how the spare part situation is for these tractors in Australia.
We figured, the 358 engine was used quite a bit for trucks and combine harvesters headers down under.
The ZF transmission sitting behind it was sold with the 06 Deutz series, so parts should be available.
So we went to the little event a little east of here to see how the tractor runs. Weather was shit again, but at least we had some decent pulling. The Devil performed ok, too and we decided to go visit the Devil Team during the week.
On the way there we came through Hamburg, just a day before the G8 meeting. Half of the city was blocked by police and we were forced to take a 1.5 hour detour. Asking one of the cops, what the f... was going on, his reply was "Damn G8 Trump". Well.. the next day made it into the world news with Antifa and other left wing radicals turning one part of the city into a war zone.
Up in Friesland things were really peaceful though.
But what turned out to become a point of discussion was the price. So in the end we found a solution: The high performance Sigma fuel pump had to move off and was replaced by a Bosch P Pump.
Another funny to watch thing was how the Devil guys put Chris into the driver's seat of the Devil and let him build boost behind the cow stable. 
Being a limited rpm tractor, it's quite a procedure to get the turbo to spin, including being on the brakes, getting the engine up to the rpm limit with a pump delivering WAY too much fuel when there's no boost and starting to slowly getting the charger to spin, while hanging into the clutch until it hurts your leg before you can finally unleash that little 6 cylinder.
After a few burn outs Chris got the hang out of it and there were sparkles in his eyes. The deal was sealed and we went to see the Euro Cup in Putten, where Chris had to learn the Pulling scene in Europe is in one way rather big but on the other rather small, when new parts for his future competitors in Australia passed right in front of his eyes to EU teams working on engines for Australia.
So, after it was time to say good bye after Putten, the tractor had to be shipped to Australia. Turned out you can send a tractor from Hamburg to Melbourne for less than 3000 bucks, but the paperwork is something else. Chris buddy mate Fred did his part on the Australian side and I helped some over here. Now the Red Devil is somewhere close to the African coast and will arrive in Melbourne later this year.
I will probably make it over to some pulls there next year and I am anxious to see, how the popular class of "stock engine with rpm limit and some power mods" will do under the Australian sun!
Maybe our hot farms with their stock engines and just turbo and pump modifications would be something for the low budget diesel guys there, too.
