North Pole engineers say Santa Claus will make his annual rounds in record time this year thanks to a newly repowered sleigh. The sleigh’s factory nine reindeer power plant was recently upgraded to 160 horses, thanks to a brand new Cummins R2.8 Turbo Diesel crate engine.
Workshop spokeself Jeremy Tinsel says convincing the big guy was the hardest part of the transition. “You know, Nick, he’s kind of traditional, so he was reluctant at first. Then, we showed him the power curve. When he saw 267 pound-feet of torque at 1600-3200 rpm, he was sold.”
