Orcan maintenance set for nitro cars

Orcan maintenance set for nitro cars

Proper maintenance is essential not only for the life time of every single part and the car as a whole, but also for the general performance. Nitro cars especially need intensive care and attention so with that in mind SMI Motorsport offers a new Orcan maintenance set for nitro cars that includes five products to keep the car’s parts running well and looking good. First of all, an engine maintenance oil which lubricates the bearings and avoids rust and oxidation. Second, a special oil for a perfect air filter. Third, a silicone spray to make the belts run smooth and the plastic parts look great. Fourth, isopropyl alcohol to clean the car and engines. And fifth, a well-known putty for easy dirt removal. All these products come in a handy Orcan multifunction bag.

Running a pre-production prototype of the Gambler SC truck, Venom’s own Rick McCrery took TQ and 1st Place in the Short Course Truck class at the annual Hank Perry 240 in Spokane, Washington. The 3-day race weekend saw a total of 265 entries across 9 classes and the popular Short Course Class had enough entries for a D Main. Despite tricky weather conditions and rain delays that only allowed for two qualifying heats, the Gambler proved that it’s up to speed against other manufacturers’ platforms by taking the top qualifying position, the win and fastest lap. The Venom Gambler will be released to the public later this summer.
