In the recent weeks, we have seen what the new ARRMA TYPHON 6S Speed Buggy can do off the track, but what about ON the track? Today our friends have Hobbico and ARRMA have shared their latest video production, displaying the TYPHON taking the track. It appears as though this buggy is quite the blend of speed, durability, and performance…all of which racers and bashers alike can enjoy!
Ask almost any 1/5 scale owner if they have had their header pipe come off during a run, and most likely the answer will be YES! This doesn’t happen due to lack of maintenance, but rather a design that allows the bolts vibrate loose even with the application of red thread lock. As we are all aware thread lock loses its effectiveness when heat is applied, and what does an engine produce? That’s right, HEAT! This header pipe failure happened to the MIP team just one time, and they were not so impressed, so they re-engineered the bolt system that holds on the header pipe. With this oldie, but goodie, design you can rest assured that you will never hear the distinctive BAAAAAAHHHHHH sound that signifies your header pipe just came off. With the use of this product it is quite impossible for the bolts to loosen up as the other bolt will be pulled on by the wire subsequently tightening itself up.
REDS Racing has officially released their new HCX horizontal carb, first seen at the recent IFMAR World Championships in Messina. The revolutionary carb features a differently positioned top end needle, rather than pointing diagonally upwards, it is now horizontally positioned much lower down. The new carb is designed to provide a more stable idle, more precise tuning, easier access to high speed needle, and higher mid and top range power. The REDS HCX Carb can be used with all REDS Racing offroad engines: R5R, R5T Team Edition and R7 Evoke engines.

Schelle Racing Innovations has just released their new carbon fiber battery strap for the Team Associated B5M.

NeoBuggy said the Samurai is, “one of the smoothest and most controllable engines currently available.” When combined, the Samurai and 2060 are a potent package providing unparalleled power delivery and excellent fuel mileage.

The first round of the prestigious Silverstone Winter Series attracted 92 entries in the premier 2WD buggy class, and it was new Schumacher driver Dave Poulter who unexpectedly set TQ. Dave has shot up the rankings since he joined the team, and he was joined at the front of the grid by team mates Simon Moss and Nathan Waters with their Cougar KF’s. Dave led for most of the exciting final but a small mistake near the end allowed Nathan Waters to dive through the gap to take the win with Greg Williams in 2nd, Dave Poulter in 3rd, Kev Lee 4th, and Simon Moss 5th.
