Toy Fair 2010 – Novarossi

Novarossi Buggy Plus4 Team

Having announced their two main releases ahead of time, Novarossi ran us through their complete line up of new engines for 2010. As we know the two main entrants are the Toro Nero Team and Buggy Plus 4 Team, both engines based on the previous versions but featuring some upgrades that their factory drivers were using last year. Both buggy engines sport the compact combustion chamber, essentially a dished piston with corresponding button that helps focus the combustion for better fuel economy, something team driver Adam Drake used to good effect at the Nitromania X event, getting 15 minutes from a tank. Apart from sporting a ceramic main bearing the engines have some hand work to the crankshaft and liner. Completing the new buggy engine updates, the new S21P5 XLT features the same lighter cooling head from the Team engines and has reworked internal fluid dynamics to improve the fuel delivery.

Novarossi Lineup

In on road there is the Flash .21 Special motor that has a new piston made from a special alloy as well as a ceramic main bearing and new carburettor with an alloy mount. For the touring class there is the Flash 12-3 Tuned motor which has new porting, new conrod, a ceramic main bearing and a new carburettor with a special plastic mount. Finally there have been updates to the 353 Race series which sees the 12/C and 12/S released, which specify the use of ceramic or steel bearing.
