Our partners Neo Buggy have the news that 8 times British National Champion David Crompton has rejoined Italian buggy maker Radiosistemi to race their new Crono RS7GR.

Ultimate Racing have released details about their new tire balancer, which works with the wheels of buggies, rally game cars and truggies. After many tests and exchange of opinions with their team drivers, UR came to the conclusion that unbalanced wheels produce unnecessary vibrations to the shock absorber, affecting both traction and stability of the cars while jumping. To take care of this problem they have developed this system to balance wheel weight which works by helping to find the heaviest part of the wheel, and in turn allowing you to balance it through the use of the UR balancing paste which can be applied to the opposite side of the rim.
