Bruder Brothers Shake Up X275 With Wild New Roots Blower Combo

The Bruder Brothers have been a staple in the X275 class since the inception back in 2010, remaining frontrunners in the field wherever they bring their Mustang. The Bruder Brothers started with a ProCharged combination with an F-1R/F-1X and then moved on to a small-block turbo setup and, now, to a combination that has never been run yet in X275.

Brothers Rich and Nick are trying their hand with an 8-71 belt-driven roots blower to go along with a billet block/cast head combination and VP M1 as the fuel of choice. Right now the pulley restriction is undetermined according to John Sears, the man behind X275. The 8-71 blower combination, right now, gets to deduct 300 pounds and another 50 for for the roots-style blower, so they get to come in at a nice 2,700 pounds.

Staying with the engine builder they have for quite a while, DiSomma Racing Engines has prepared a billet block with a set of Edelbrock SC1 cast cylinder heads to power the new roots blower in the 1/8-mile. Fueling the new combination is a set of Billet Atomizer 7 injectors. Testing numbers haven’t been divulged, but w’ll get a good look at what they can do at South Georgia Motorsports Park this week at Lights Out 8. As with each combination they’ve run, the Bruder’s are always at the top of the field and we wouldn’t bet against them this week.
