First pics and news of the new Blower Power

The Blower Power Pulling Team from Varhaug, in Norway are currently working on a new 950kg / 2095lbs. Mini Modified Tractor for the 2018 season. After 3 season´s with the old Hardcore Forces (Lambada 7) Chassis, the Norwegian Team decided to switch to a current Bobcat Jr. Chassis for 2018. The Tractor will have a 42CrMo4 tube frame with a 42CrMo4 Rollcage, Carbon fiber fenders and a Vreeman planetaries rear axle. The completely new Chassis was built by the Screamin´ Bobcat Pulling Team in Ijsselmuiden, the Netherlands. The new Chassis is lighter than the old CJ Herr built Chassis from 2010. The drivers position on the new frame is more forward and the center of gravety is lower than on the old Blower Power Chassis. The Team hopes to get a better balance with this new Bobcat Jr. Chassis in the future. The newly built Vreeman rear axle has a sheet metal housing with a aluminium center section, a aluminium diff with special made gears, a special made ring and pinion gear and billet aluminium planetaries carrier housing with special built planetaries. All the parts for the rear axle, like the gears, housing, diff etc. were built by Bennie Vreeman of Vreeman Special Products (VSP) in Neede, the Netherlands. The new carbon fiber fenders of the new ride were built by Gertie Leusink of the Simply Irresistible Pulling Team from Dronten, in the Netherlands. The Mini Mod also receives a new VSP gearbox with a new built VSP billet driveline, a 10´´ inch Molinari centrifugal clutch with 2 discs and a Browell aluminium clutch bell housing.
The new Tractor will have an Sassy Racing V8 Hemi engine on methanol fuel. The engine comes from the old Tractor and will overhauled during the winter time. The power plant has a BAE billet aluminium engine block with Veney cylinder heads, Dan Olson Racing exhaust headers, MGP billet aluminium rods and CP-Carrillo billet aluminium pistons, a Winberg crank, a DMPE 18-71 blower with a CGC Mk9 X carbon fiber scoop, a Sassy Racing fuel system with a Sassy Racing fuel pump, a new Moroso aluminium fuel and oil tank, a dry sump lubrication with a Aviaid oil pump, a MSD Pro Mag 44 ignition and a Racepak data logger by Post & Dros.
The Blower Power Pulling Team will compete in the Norwegian Championship and in the Euro Cup next year. The maiden run of the new Blower Power is planned for the 10th of March 2018 at the European Superpull in Ahoy, Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
