MLC Collari motor by Novarossi

MLC Collari Motor

We’ve all seen the pictures of the new 35 Plus .21 Lamberto Collari engine on the Novarossi site but here is a much nicer pic from Lamberto’s site tself. It is a nice looking motor from Novarossi and it comes in a limited edition pack that contains an exhaust pipe, 3 manifolds and 3 plugs, but wait for the price – RRP EUR750 (US$950)!!! This is a purchase you need to definitely clear with the wife first and perhaps even talk with your bank manager about it too and despite all that if you want one you’d probably want to put your name down now for one before they’re all gone.

Orcan Extreme motor cooler

Orcan Extreme motor cooler

New from Orcan is this ‘extreme motor cooler’. Now anything with ‘extreme’ in the name, no matter how uninteresting the actual product is, is bound to draw ones attention and this one did just that (plus it looks cool in the picture). Apparently once fitted into your electric car, in little or no time it manages to not just cool your motor, but bring it down to ‘Winter in Finland’ levels of coolness and keep it there. I dont need to explain why thats a good thing. Available now for EUR 89.

Sirio Kanai Evo III STI spotted in the wild

Sirio Kanai Evo III

Buggy-Sport have the scoop on the new Sirio Kanai Evo III STI 3.5cc off road motor. Now we don’t know whose car this is in but the engine is seen in a Kyosho buggy and because of the timing we reckon it was taken at last weekends ‘GP International De Pierrefeu‘. Now Sirio employee and Kyosho racer Adrien Bertin was there so we are going to call it and say that this is his car….just like that (we’ll write a correction when found to be wrong :). By the way Adrien finished 9th after some problems in the final.

UPDATE: The car belonged to Stéphane Deroch and you can see him here with his car.

Also seen in the same car was a new Sirio pipe system, which you can be seen over at Buggy-Sport so check that out.

SN Viper

Now, if you haven’t yet had your fill of off road buggies, here is a video from Robin Frischkopf from the 5th round of the Swiss Championships held back in September. Apart from the not very appealing country/rock music its a pretty good video, made at what seems to be a very rough track.

You can view the streaming video here.
