THE LAT­EST IN THE WORLD OF DIESEL POWER

Diesel World - - Contents -

It’s of­fi­cial. A Duramax-pow­ered monster truck has in­fil­trated the top ranks of Monster Jam—and it’s highly com­pet­i­tive. Driven by Sparks Mo­tors’ Heavy D, the “Brodozer” is the first diesel-pow­ered truck to ever com­pete in Monster Jam and it de­buted at Nashville in late June. It’s pow­ered by a Wa­gler Com­pe­ti­tion Prod­ucts Duramax that’s sad­dled with a com­pound turbo ar­range­ment and S&S Diesel Mo­tor­sport fuel­ing. Al­though the truck ex­pe­ri­enced some over­heat­ing is­sues to­ward the end of its time on the track, its freestyle per­for­mance wasn’t hin­dered in the least and it even sat in first place for most of the com­pe­ti­tion. Heavy D and the Brodozer would end up fourth over­all—not a bad de­but on one of the big­gest stages in all of mo­tor­sports. In ad­di­tion to hold­ing its own against all the al­co­hol-pow­ered com­pe­ti­tion, the truck’s unique sound and plumes of smoke were well-re­ceived by the crowd.
