Toy Fair 2011 – Gi-Mar

Gi-Mar Mig12X

Italian company Gi-Mar took us aside to show us their latest releases in their engine line for 2011. First up the Mig 12X has a new 11.9mm super balanced crankshaft with 2 weight, in place of the previous 11.5mm version, which has been JP Black coated. Work has also been done to the bell crank which results in a heavier weighted side with the pin side machined to reduce weight, the result of which is higher rpm. This long stroke motor also features a new sleeve with 2 extra small holes below the exhaust port for more power in the bottom end and much easier engine adjustment.

Shown to us in Houston earlier this month, Italian company Gi-Mar have released their new entry level buggy engine, the .21 Raptor. While this is the entry level for Gi-Mar it is not a budget engine, featuring a hard coated and lightened crankshaft as well as additional dremel work to the internals of the case, this is a great performer at a reasonable price.
