Karlen Motorsports, and members of the FLPT, have been working like crazy building the brand new chassis for the team for the 2017 season.
In the later months of 2016, Brechbuhler Scales, Inc. / B-TEK Scales, LLC. agreed to join forces with the FLPT again for the 2017 season. With that came their desire to purchase a new chassis for our team! Much appreciation to Brechbuhler Scales, Inc. / B-TEK Scales, LLC for all of their help and support! Be sure to check the out at http://www.brechbuhler.com for all of you scales scale and service needs!
Along with a new chassis, many new changes are happening with the turbo configuration, intake and exhaust manifolds, and turbo plumbing to increase air flow, both entering and exiting the motor.
(Pictured above is the intake air collector from the top two turbos to the bottom turbo)
Riverside Engines, Inc. in Tiffin, Ohio, has made a intake manifold and a new cam shaft design for the Fully Loaded Team.
Kyle & Gary Karlen of Karlen Motorsports Chassis have been working very hard in developing and constructing the new chassis. Countless hours of making pieces and parts and fitting parts has lead the Team and Karlen Motorsports to finally getting the chassis complete!
Now that the chassis is complete and painted, it is now time to fit everything in the chassis and start the assembly process and finish the plumbing work and make the necessary changes to existing fuel and oil lines to get everything in working order! There is still a lot to do, but everything is coming along very nicely! We hope to be ready to do a test run or two at the NTPA Region Two pull in Sugar Creek, Ohio, Friday, May 26th!
