RB Products, the French engine makers, have announced the release of their new RB Concept C6BB 7T 3.5cc buggy motor. This new engine has made thousands of hours of testing at the hands of RB team drivers to prove its new turbo combustion chamber, which improves the overall power of the engine, and 7mm venturi to help improve traction, which all comes together to provide a wide power band with incredibly smooth acceleration. With these features, the fuel consumption drops and the drivability is increased, especially on low traction tracks.
We just received a mail from our friends at Horizon Hobby UK, formerly Helger Racing, saying that have started to import the Panther range of tyres into the UK.

We have shown you lots of parts from M Mod before, as well as All Mod, and today we have more parts to show you, this time only for Mugen. The first up, which you can see above is a rear lower wishbone pivot point for the MTX4 that has been made out of the trademark grey anodised aluminium and adds to the strength required around this area in the event of an impact. Also available from M Mod, for the MBX5 and the MBX5-T, is a part that combines the upper servo saver mount and the upper rear side front suspension pivot point in one part which adds greatly to the strength and stiffness of this entire area.
All Mod, the optional parts brand from MID in Germany, have added two new items to their current product line up. First up, which you can see above, is this grey anodised aluminium air filter carrier for .21 and .28 off road engines which claims to allow 40% more air into the engine, while not compromising the filtering process. Also from All Mod are some new capped wheel nuts that are suitable for all off road axles with a 17mm thread.
