OS Speed VZB V-Spec Alu

OS Speed VZB V-Spec Alu

Neo Buggy have some news from World Champion engine maker O.S. about their new 3.5cc VZB V-Spec Alu headed buggy engine. The engine appears to be the same as the magnesium headed VZB, however features a more conventional aluminium head for those racers wanting the power of the V-Spec but on a tighter budget. The head’s styling also differs from the distinctive magnesium version as a result of the heat conduction characteristics of aluminium, which mean a smaller diameter can be used, and also allows for a new engine head shape. The weight difference is also kept to a minimum with the alu head only 25g heavier than the Magnesium version.

K-Factory options for Team Magic M1B

K Factory, the optional parts wing of Team Magic, have announced the release of some new optional parts for the Team Magic M1B 1/8th scale buggy. First up (above) is a replacement for the original composite servo saver linkage mount, which has been made from aluminium with composite inserts, that increases the strength and durability in this vital area. Also new are some rather cool looking chassis stiffeners, for both the front and the rear of the car, that have been made from aluminium and carbon fibre which are super lightweight and additionally keep the centre of gravity of the M1B as low as possible. And finally is a set of center diff mount stiffening rods, which work with the chassis stiffeners to remove all flex from around the center diff that could reduce the life of the parts in this area.
