Our partners oOple have created a dedicated section on their site, giving an extended review of the JConcepts BJ4WE. The intention of this section is to show the performance of the BJ4 worlds edition car, and how it has developed since its first debut in Collengo, Italy – at the worlds in 2005. Paul Rotheram will share his own experiences with the car, along with useful information he has found to make the most out of the JConcepts experience.
A long time back, we showed you some CAD images of the new Kaos DT-19T truggy from OCM Racing, which at the time was still a concept on a computer screen. Well as you can see in the picture above the truggy is now real and judging by the picture it looks pretty good. No other details have been announced but to have a closer look and judge for yourself click the image.
UPDATE: Rube Dude have some pictures of the truggy in action, which you can view here.
HPI / Hot Bodies will start shipping a whole lot of new optional parts for their 4wd electric buggy, the Cyclone D4. Some new parts offer new tuning possibilites such as the new rear side suspension blocks that now come in 2.0 and 2.5 degrees of toe-in, in place of the standard 3.0 degrees that comes with the car. Other tuning parts are the new purple anodised rear hubs that offer now 0.5 and 1.0 degree of toe-in as well as adding strength to the area due to the use of aluminium. Also available are some new matched springs in different ratings, aluminium wheel hubs for extra strength and reduced flex, a front one way shaft and finally just for looks are some new flourescent yellow wheels.

A quick piece from our site partners Neo Buggy about this new wheel from French manufacturer, Medial Pro. The wheel, which will be available from next week, does everything an off road wheel needs to do, its strong, light and fits all buggies and if disc wheels with slits in them float your boat, then this is the perfect wheel for you.
