Now this latest edition of the engine feature parts changed to during the successful defence of this World title. The outer head has a new design that improved by reducing weight and lowering the center of gravity for better balance. The laser design has also been brushed up and a graphic with a laurel wreath that honours the world champion has been applied. The φ6.5mm reducer used at the World Championships is also used, and both parts are made with Ongaro’s request colour jewellery blue anodised aluminium, creating a strong presence as a special model.

O.S. Engines has introduced its newest offroad engine with the release of the O.S. SPEED B21 Adam Drake Edition 3. The engine is the latest offering from the Japanese company’s collaboration with Offroad racing legend Adam Drake. By adopting a boost bypass processing for the crankcase, the engine runs more smoothly, and making it even easier to drive. Adam Drake’s signature colour, blue anodized aluminium is applied to the cutting part of the new outer head, and two-colour anodized aluminium with new design is used to reduce weight and lower the center of gravity for improved driving performance. You can make a choice of two different carburettor restrictor, 6.5II for buggy and 7.5 mainly for truggy.
O.S. Speed have introduced their updated R21 Euro 1/8th onroad engine with the release of the Euro II. Based on their successful Euro motor released three years ago, the engine sports a host of updates starting with the new crankshaft. To obtain more power the balance of the crankshaft was updated and now sports 3 tungsten counter weights, giving an improvement in the mid range. Another effect of this change is the return to idle has been improved. The liner now has an additional cooling hole on the exhaust side and the crankcase has been updated to cater for this. The last change is only cosmetic as the cooling head now has some updated laser graphics. Available as stand alone engine or as a combo with the TR01 exhaust and MR02 manifold for long straights in Europe.

Davide Ongaro has his first Ongaro Edition O.S. Speed B21, having joined the Japanese brand at the start of 2021. Modified according to his own feelings, it is based on the latest O.S. Speed B2104 off-road engine. The crankshaft has been changed to a counter web shape and uses of single tungsten weight specially made for this engine to suit his driving style. The inner head also has a specially designed combustion chamber, and the synergistic effect of these gives a smooth feeling and more powerful top end. In addition, the outer head adopts a standard round type, and sports Ongaro’s original logo mark. A new size φ5.8mm / φ6.3mm black anodised restrictor is also used for the carburettor to create an “Engine that can win big races” that matches his requirements.
