Team Orion CRF 21 US Spec engine

Team Orion have officially announced the CRF 21 US Spec buggy engine, which is the result of intensive testing with the collaboration of team drivers Ryan Cavalieri, Jorn Neumann and Philipp Guschl. With the introduction of new types of cars with lighter components, it appeared that the existing CRF engine was too powerful, so they created a new specification engine. This new motor keeps the incredible torque but delivers the power in a smoother way as requested by the team, while at the same time getting better mileage efficiency.
