Finally we found some time again this winter to do maintenance, as it should be. Changes in the driveline had been made, additionally some impeller drives were improved, and last but not least we designed our own data logger/engine management system. We hope our new system works and brings us a little bit more horsepower. We will compete the German Championship this season. A test run is planned for next weekend.
Unfortunately we had to take a last-minute decision and cancel the trip to Grimmen due to family reasons.
So the last game for the german Championship was sheduled on 5th and 6th of july in Krumbach. It was a very special event for us ....
We arrived already on friday evening because our plan was to do a show pull on saturday. After we had to replace one spinner valve in the closed pit, we could make a nice full pull.
On sunday, the track still was too hard and it was very difficult for some of the 2,5t modifieds to show good pulls. Although we were way too heavy at the front end, we managed to qualify for the pull off. After having checked our logger System, we decided to change some things for the pull off. Unfortunately it turned out the wrong way an we had to stop our pull off run because the tractor was jumping quite heavily. We could not beat Green Monster's leading distance and so we finished on a second place.
Congratulations to Frank and his Le Coiffeur Team, he won the german Championship 2014.
We managed to finished on a 3rd place.
Due to the huge amount of competitors in our class, we had just one attempt to qualify for the pulloff. Unfortunately, the engine had a back fire around 50m, which had cost us a full pull... We finished at 97,01m. Only Black Power made a full pull.
We will investigate the cause of the backfire this week in order to be ready for Altenburg next weekend.
We had a great time in Füchtorf and we are very happy with our result!
Our qualifying run was very good and we made a nice full pull. Only 5 tractors from 15 made it into the finals.
Unfortunately Serge made a mistake in the pull off, the start was too slow and the tyre pressure too high.
Our distance of 85,30m was good enough for a third place. No way to beat Roussian Roulette or Le Coiffeur. Both of them showed perfect pull off runs.
Our tractor is ready again and we will pull in Edewecht next weekend.
Mir sinn erëm do!
No ganz schwierege Joeren ass endlech Rou an der Famill. D’Scheedung ass duerch, an ech sinn ganz alleng mat mengen 3 Kanner Doheem. D’Prioritéiten hunn deementspriechend geännert; iwwert de Wanter sinn d’Luuchten am Roude Léiw Atelier aus bliwwen an amplaz huet et geheescht kachen, botzen, wäschen, spullen an Hausaufgabe maachen. Tractor Pulling gëtt 2014 nëmmen gefuer wann et passt.
De Marc an ech hu geplangt de Roude Léiw jr. den 27 Abrëll zu Füchtorf un de Start ze bréngen, an dat mam setup vun 2013. Mir hoffen et klappt alles a mir kennen e bëssi Spaass hunn.
