More off-road buggy videos

Rodrigo Luis

Ok so today we are bringing you 3 videos, 2 of which feature 4wd electric buggies and were taken at the 2006 Belgian GP on a wicked artificial surface track. The third one is of Rodrigo Luis driving at the Torres Vedras (screenshot above) just last weekend with a 1/8th scale buggy. In this one you can see a wall of death corner half way through the lap that looks super cool.

You can view the 2 videos from the Belgian GP here and here.

Olly Jefferies wins Rd1 CML Carpet Masters

Olly Jefferies

Hot Bodies racer Olly Jefferies has taken FTD and the win at round 1 of the CML Carpet Masters held last weekend. Olly recently switched to Hot Bodies and had considerable success so far, taking FTD at every event raced along with winning round 1 of the Carpet Thrashnals and now this win. It is all seen as preparation for the GP Carpet World Cup, held in Geneva at the end of November, which Olly is planning on attending.

Since getting my Cyclone I have been concentrating on carpet racing in preparation for the forthcoming GP Carpet World Cup in Geneva at the end of the month, the car feels really good on carpet and easy to tune, I am also feeling more comfortable with every meeting with the new car and really looking forward to the Geneva meeting.

MLC Collari motor by Novarossi

MLC Collari Motor

We’ve all seen the pictures of the new 35 Plus .21 Lamberto Collari engine on the Novarossi site but here is a much nicer pic from Lamberto’s site tself. It is a nice looking motor from Novarossi and it comes in a limited edition pack that contains an exhaust pipe, 3 manifolds and 3 plugs, but wait for the price – RRP EUR750 (US$950)!!! This is a purchase you need to definitely clear with the wife first and perhaps even talk with your bank manager about it too and despite all that if you want one you’d probably want to put your name down now for one before they’re all gone.
