Novarossi Mito nitro on-road engines

Novarossi Mito nitro on-road engines

New for 2015 is Novarossi’s line of Mito on-road nitro engines. Coming as 9-port Mito 9 and 7-port Mito 7 for 1/8th racing and smaller Mito.12 for 200mm nitro cars, all engines offer Novarossi’s patented shifted carburettor that grants better mixture flow through the crankcase for improved fuel efficiency and an optimised power curve. Also new are updated rear ball bearings for reduced rotating masses and an improved mixture flow inside the engine which relates to increased throttle response and higher top speeds. The .21 engines also come with a redesigned 3-needle carburettor for improved idle characteristics and an improved return to lower RPM when coming from the upper ranges of the RPM spectrum. The new engine line is rounded out by updated cooling heads with laser-etched logos.

Exotek DEX210 motor plate & DETC410 diff cams

Exotek DEX210 motor plate & DETC410 diff cams

New from Exotek come two aluminium option parts for the Team Durango DEX410 and DETC410 kits. First up is the Flite vented motor plate for Team Durango’s 2WD buggy. The 100 percent CNC-machined vented motor plate keeps the motor running cooler and longer for that extra edge. Aggressive cut-outs allow the heat that builds up inside the gear cover to vent out thus lowering overall motor temps greatly. The extra machining reduces the weight down to 16g, making the plate over 5g lighter than stock, but the critical motor mounting areas are still intact to maintain solid motor mounting and gear mesh. The plate is available in gold or black anodising and it easily mounts as MM3 or MM4 configuration with the Exotek logos laser etched on both sides of the plate.
