Team Orion CRF CPD released

Team Orion CRF CPD

Way back at the start of February Team Orion showed their CPD (constant pressure device) system to visitors at the Nuernberg toy fair, and we showed it to you for the first time then also. Well if you have been waiting to buy one ever since, you now can, as it has just been released.

The CRF CPD acting as a pressure valve system, effectively resolves this problem by regulating the amount of pressure going to the fuel tank. The valve allows a constant amount of pressure to be sent to the fuel tank, by opening or closing itself depending on the engine’s rotation speed.

Fischer wins 1/10th German West Rd4

Last weekend in the West of Germany, at the Dormagen track, the 4th round of the west German Regionals were held. The event attracted 53 drivers, slightly less than espected due to the predicted bad weather, which turn out to be wrong, as the weather was dry for the entire event. Qualifying was a battle between top electric racers Mark Fischer and Markus Mobers, with Fischer taking the pole position for the main final. In the race itself Mark was able to pull away directly after the start and could easily win by 2 laps from the Serpent pairing of Markus Mobers in 2nd and Karl Heinz Meister in 3rd.
