07-08-10 / Lochem

After the weekend Cadzand / Edewecht the tractor is completely controlled. We opened the extend oilfilter. These screen filtered beside the oilfilter again the oil that is going through the engine. In the screen we found too much aluminum particles, which may indicate damage to the pistons. So sump, rockercover and cylinderheads disassembled to view the pistons Two pistons are no longer looked too fresh and are replaced. Also the set up is changed to prevent piston damage.

The weather forecasts were not favorable for Lochem There was rain coming, thats why today in all classes was driving of floating finish. The prostocks were again first starters of the pull. The MF went well and we had every confidence. Karin was waiting for the sledge, he was not hooked up, and it started to rain. The plastic was on the track, Bad Boy's Toy and sledge were parked at the beginning of the track and after three quarters waiting the match could resume. After the plastic had been cleared, the track was re-planed our run went on. Karin had previously been instructed to use more rpm’s to drive away. The start was good and after a small brake correction the tractir fell silent again, the engine blew just out. What now? Rene initially thought that Karin was driven away early, but reading the rpm-counter proved otherwise. More than enough rpm’ss on the counter. Reading the data logger showed that there was not enough temperature in the engine. This was during the run not hot enough and then the engine is blowing out. The adjustment was too "safe" and will be changed next week. Furthermore, the extemd oilfilter and everything will be checked.

Back to the pull. Extreme Temptation and Snoopy forfeit valuable points by hitting the white lines. Despite the floating finish, still five finalists. Mr. Bean did not return. The victory was for Turn me Loose, followed by Rocky, Next Sensation and Neighbours Nightmare. After several interruptions during the pull by rain was decided after two super stocks were driven to cancel the pull. It would not stop raining. The super stock class and 4.5 ton modified could not run today.

31-07 + 01-08-10 / Cadzand and Edewecht

After the Eurocup in Herning the MF is completely checked. Wednesday evening during the rotation of the engine we noticed that the distribution gearwheel was free . Dismantling of the distribution is a lot of work. Also the timing of the camshaft had conducted (which is also the problem during the second run in Herning). So Saturday morning we assemble Bad Boy’s Toy and we could leave until afternoon.

We arrived around 16.00 hours in Cadzand. The pull had already started at 14.00 hours because of the noise permit the prostocks were last class.We were on time to prepare Bad Boy’s Toy. The stewards decided to pull with floating (pushing the full pull line to 115 meters). Karin was the last on the starting list. We had already seen the start was not too good and the track had to endure a lot of the 4.5 tons modifieds. Karin drove today for the first time with Sigma and that took some time getting used to. After starting problems in the pit (thanks to a teammeber of Rednex for helping!) Karin was in front of the sledge. She boosted up the engine and started quick. The run was good until the engine suddenly fell down! With a ranking in the rear we went home. Turn me Loose was today’s winner, before Rocky and Extreme Temptation.

As on Sunday we were invited for a demo in Germany we put Bad Boy's Toy directly from the bus in the workshop when we came home at 01.30 hours. Along the way back home we watched the video for many times but could not discover why the tractor stopped so suddenly. While reviewing some little things were resolved, but there was no obvious cause found. Indeed we reduced the amount fuel in the fuelpump because it was too much. Bad Boy's Toy has started and after 2 hours of sleep at 07.15 hours we get on the road to Edewecht.

Around the clock to half past one it was time for our class. Karin had competition of 6 German prostocks. Even now we were the last on the starting list. Before us three full pulls were made, would it be Bad Boy's Toy also going to succeed? After boosting up Bad Boy's Toy flew almost over the track and only at 111 meters he stopped. Yoo-hoo! A big full pull! On to the final. Sledge on the left, boosting up and even now with considerable speed towards the end of the track. Karin ended after the 100 meters line outside the white lines, which meant disqualification. It was because of floating finish driving, but we (and some German participants) did not known. Unfortunate because Karin had the furthest distance and then disqualification is not funny. It was not to worry because the two super runs were the most important thing for us! The engine ran well and everything works as it should work. Ultimately, Karin still finished in a tie for third place, wich made us also happy. After the Superstock with 5 Dutch participants, we drove back to Bakel. Uncle Ben had the coffee ready and during watching the videos we have already noticed improvements. Next week we go to work on these improvements to get Bad Boy's Toy better off for the pull next Saturday, August 7 in Lochem.

25-07-10 / Eurocup Herning

Before the pull in Herning Bad Boy’s Toy was subjected of great maintenance. After the cilinderheads were removed, we saw that the pistons were not in very good condition. Two had suffered of bad injectors. We mount a new set of pistons to preventing risks. Also some leaks were resolved. All together a lot of work and the team has been very busy for two weeks wit hall the adjustments. But the biggest changes are the new Sigma fuelpump and larger turbo charger! Our Kiki and Bosch fuelpump are no longer meet the current engine set-up and the turbo did not get enough air into the engine. Thursday Bad Boy’s Toy was started again for the first time. What a sound with the new Sigma pump and also the V8 run pretty tight. Unfortunately after running the turbo charger dit not work anymore; cause was a bent axle. Also the turbo wheel was bent. We went to Barend Huijbregts for a new axle, only the turbowheel would come on Friday moring. So we pick up at Friday moring the new wheel and build up Bad Boy’s Toy with the old turbo charger. The new one we should assemble together with Barend in Danmark at the pull. We also had to solve a problem in the charging cicuit of the bus. A 2.5 hours later than planned we could leave at 18.15 hour. 

Saturday moring at 05.15 we were in Herning (Danmark) and after the bus was on its place we went to sleep. After lunch together with Barend we put together the turbo charger and then Bad Boy’s Toy could start, and it ran good. After that we watched the pull, because prostocks were on Sunday.

Around the clock of 14.00 hours the prostock class was started with 16 participant. René was third on the start and in healty tension he ride Bad Boy’s Toy to the sledge. Sander and Karin were today assistants on the track. The green flag was given and boosting up was started. However while boosting up the RPM counter fell off! On the noise and feeling René further boosting up and after some considerable brake corrections he ended at 98 meters. In the parc fermee we checked the rpm sensors and went on the second attempt. Again the counter did not work and René had to do it without. Only 95 meters was the result because there was not enough pressure in the engine. All in all not a bad result with not enough RPM’s and turbo pressure. A quick inspection after the race we saw a break in the rpm sensor.

The highest step on the podium today was for Rocky, second for Next Sensation and third for Sigma Power. For all results click here. Pictures you can see at multi-media.

We are very satisfied about the engine and fuelpump. This week everything is checked, replace the sensor and then Saturday 31 July to Cadzand for the next round of the Dutch Champignonship. Subsequently we go to Edewecht (Germany) for a demo if everything is intact.

10-07-10 / Beach Pull Putten
Today it was very hot during the Beach Pull in Putten. We pulled as last class on the left track after the 4.5 tons modifieds and two wheel drives. As many as 27 participants were on the startinglist, including Carlton Cope with his Warpath. This Massey Ferguson 2805 is from the USA and was invited by the organization. Karin and Rene were last year during their trip to Louisville (USA) at Carlton, so it was nice to see him again.

The Eurocup and Dutch Competion were joined together in ons class and Rene had the test pull with Bad Boy's Toy. We have seen that the track is very attracted to the left during the other classes, so also during our run. Around 91 meters Rene became to stop. Then Red Attraction who pulled just a meter less and the sledge was going lighter. In the secound attempt Rene came again around the 91 meters. Bad Boy's Toy could not get the right balance and now he went again to the left. We deceided to do our run again (according to the Eurocup rules you are alowed to pull over when your first run is between 90 en 100 meters) and we did a adjustment to the water injection. This run ended just below the 90 meters. At last in the qualify was Warpath. With his larger engine and heavier weight he was in favor of the European pro stocks. But that did not spoil the fun, he had a hell of a run to see! Then the final began. There had been some raindrops, but that was a nice cool down after a long hot day. But after the first finalist it started raining seriously and they had to cover the track. After about fifteen minutes the competition could resume. It was getting harder to blow and after another five finalist the storm brooke loose! Thunderstorms, rain and wind gusts made that everyone should seek shelter. After a half an hour to three quarters the rain and wind were less but the area was turned into a quagmire. The competition could not continue. Not all finalist had run in the pro stock class. But that was also for the 950 kg class and the 3.5 tons modified who pulled on the other track. Bad luck for Snoopy and White Crow who had to leave the track wiht engine damage.

As we look to driven distances we are not unsatisfied with our runs, but we had expected more result of the adjustments we made. So in that respect it still falls somewhat disappointing. The next two weeks we will use for major maintenance of Bad Boy's Toy and hope to be fresh at the start in the weekend of 24 and 24 July in Herning (Danmark) during the Eurocup.

Look at results for the distances. How the points wil be divided is not clear, so the positions in the standings will be updated when we know more about it. Go to multi-media for the pictures of Putten, with thanks to Sascha of pullingworld.com, Jolanda and Andre
