Novarossi 21-5K

Our friend Philip over at Neo Buggy has once again got some scoopage, this time with this picture set from the new Novarossi 21-5K buggy motor. The successor to the massively popular Plus 21-5 engine, the main differences with the 5K are a P5 sleeve and an updated crankcase all meant to produce more power and overall better performance.

OCM Kaos DT-19T truggy

OCM Racing, makers of the Kaos 1/8th scale buggy, have released some cad images of their new truggy, the Kaos DT-19T. The chassis itself looks to have a very standard design for a car in this class with the only stand out feature from the cad images being the Allen key adjusted track rod system that looks like a very neat idea. Expect to see this car in the shops in March.

Piktor reveal Rush 2 body shell

Piktor Rush 2

Piktor, the French company that has been teasing us with images of their all new and rather unique Rush 2 1/8th scale off road buggy, have finally shown us the complete body shell of the car. This computer generated graphic shows the body shells flowing curves, including the F1 type winglets in front of the rear wheels, as well as the unique front wing. I have to say it looks good, now if they would only release the car we’d all be happy.

Italian manufacturer Blade Racing, best known for their Rally Game cars, have announced that they will introduce a new 1/8th scale buggy into the market when they release their new off roader. Nothing more is known about this project other than it will more than likely be shown for the first time at the Nurnberg toy fair at the start of next month. This is yet another manufacturer entering this over crowded market bringing the number of manufacturers to 32, all fighting for a piece of the action.
