Mike Truhe spotted testing new Powerplant

Mike Truhe seen testing new Powerplant

We have received word out of California that former ROAR National Champion Mike Truhe was recently spotted testing a new power plant in his Losi buggy. The new motor was seen being used in his 8ight chassis and is a departure from the usual Alpha unit that the Team Orion driver normally uses, for starters sporting a black cooling head in place of the familiar red unit. The test was part of Mike’s preparations for this week’s Nitrocross race in Arizona where our source believes he will debut the new engine. Having lost their previous GRP engine tie up, when the Italian company ceased production earlier this year, this new motor could be the result of a bigger plan by US company Horizon Hobby, who own Losi, to once again link up with a major competition engine manufacturer. We will keep you informed as we know more.
