Jerome Sartel TOP-powered in 2015

CML Distribution, CML France and Novarossi have announced that former French Champion and European Finalist Jerome Sartel has chosen to use TOP Elite engines as his power for the 2015 1/8th nitro off-road season. Being free to select any engine for his TLR 8ight chassis, Jerome was in an enviable position to test and research a number of motors before committing to a final manufacturer. After extensive testing Jerome felt that TOP Elite engines were the perfect partner, and the ideal power package to allow him get the best performance from his 8ight buggy and truggy platforms.
