The new Bad Boys Toy Component Pro Stock

From Bakel, in the Netherlands, the Bad Boys Toy Pulling Team around Rene Manders are currently building a new 3.5t / 7700lbs. Massey Ferguson Component Pro Stock Tractor. After many years with balance and weight problems, the Team decided to built a completely new Pro Stock on Component base in 2012. Without the MF stock rearend, the original gearbox and the standard bell housing, the Team save a lots of weight. With those changes, they have more movable weight on the new Tractor. The calculations of the Team said, the new one will be around 500kg lighter than the old one. After less time during the last years, the Bad Boys Toy Team set the Component Pro Stock project on ice for 3 years. In the end of 2016, after the sell of their old Bad Boys Toy Tractor, they continued with the building process of the new MF Component Pro Stock project. The Pro Stock Tractor receives a chrome-moly tube frame with a new homemade chrome-moly Rollcage, a self built hydraulic power steering, a Rockwell rearend, a homemade hitch, a MF 1150 hood and homemade MF glass fibre fenders. The new hood of the Tractor isn´t a original MF 1150 hood. The hood is a copy of the MF 1150 and was built in their own workshop in Bakel. They built that hood from glass fibre. The glass fibre hood is wider and much lighter than the original sheet metal hood. The Chassis comes from the old single Rolls Royce Griffon V12 powered Light Modified Tractor called ,,Le Coiffeur Stage 6´´ of Frank Bartholome. They purchased the Chassis from Frank Bartholome in 2011. During the building periode, the guys made a lots of changes and improvements on the frame. It´s not a lot, what has left over of the old Le Coiffeur frame, only the side tube frame rails are left over of the frame.
The Rockwell rearend was shortened and gets a Rockwell center section with a stock needle bearing differential, a Rockwell ring and pinion gear, stock ZF planetaries carrier housing with original ZF planetaries and homemade brake discs with Van der Waal Pulling Parts brakes. The rear wheels on the new Vehicle are a set of used polished Midwest aluminium rims with new uncut Firestone Puller 2000 HP tyres. The Bad Boys Toy Team purchased the tyres from the John Deere Pulling Team in Denmark. The Team have planned for the first season to drive with the uncut tyres on the Pulling tracks. The MF also receives a new constructed homemade 3 speed gearbox, a new Van der Waal Pulling Parts built driveline, a Van der Waal Pulling Parts 11´´ inch centrifugal clutch with 5 Crower discs, a homemade steel fly wheel and a Browell steel clutch bell housing of the former turbocharged twin Allison V12 powered Heavy Modified Tractor called ,,Alley Cat´´ from the Netherlands. The new gearbox gets a homemade CNC-milled aluminium housing with Fuller gears, newly built shafts and has 3 forward gears and 1 reverse gear. All the calculations for the newly constructed gearbox were made by the Bad Boys Toy Team himself.
The new Component Pro Stock will have a new turbocharged Perkins V8 engine with 510cui. / 8.3l capacity on diesel fuel. The engine has a Perkins stock block with Darton sleeves, a new balanced Perkins crankshaft with original steel rods and homemade aluminium pistons, revised Perkins cylinder heads with billet steel camshafts, a homemade intake and exhaust manifold, a billet Holset HX82 turbocharger with a 5´´ inch intake wheel from the Rocky Pulling Team, a new aluminium Intercooler, a self built sheet metal fuel tank, a Sigma fuel pump with 17mm elements, a Aviaid oil pump and a new data logger.
The new Intercooler was built by their sponsor ERF Heating & Cooling Solutions in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. For the future are planned to built new stronger homemade Toolox rods for the engine and new lighter built planetaries carrier housing from aluminium.
The Bad Boys Toy Pulling Team will compete in the Dutch National Championship next year.
The maiden voyage of the Bad Boys Toy Component Pro Stock Tractor is planned for 2018.
