Tosolini, Cyrul Score At ROAR Carpet Nats

Chris Tosolini drove his SMC-powered, Fantom-motor Yokomo into the 1/10 Sedan Modified winner's circle at the ROAR On-Road Carpet Nationals. Chris TQ'd the class, ripping up Ripon Speedways Ozite with a blistering 24/5:11.45 run, but only won one of the triple A-Mains (Trinity's Paul Lemieux and Associated's Mike Dumas won the other rounds). But it's all about the points, and Tos had 'em.

Trinity's Josh Cyrul was the big winner in 1/12 Mod, besting Barry Baker and Mike Blackstock. Josh went into the Mains as top-qualifier with 41/8:07.73, and sat out the third main after winning the first two.

In the Nats other classes, Travis Schreven won Stock Touring, TJ Bradley took down the win in 1/12 4-cell stock with SMC power, and David Lee won the 1/12 Masters race, also with SMC cells.

Vray, Mugen, RB Concepts win the Worlds!

Frechman Guillaume Vray, driving an RB-powered Mugen MBX-5 Prospec has won the IFMAR World Championship! Details are few right now, but this victory breaks the longest winning stretch in the history of IFMAR competition by Kyosho of six straight wins. Mugen now claims its second victory in 1/8 off-road Worlds competition. American drivers Jeremy Kortz, Mark Pavidis and Chad Bradley finished 3rd, 4th and 5th respectively. Kortz finished on the same lap as the winner and second place finisher, but was in danger of going a lap down according to the time sheet. Pavidis finished two laps down but never crossed the stripe to complete what would have been his 103rd lap. Bradley and the next three drivers are all shown as completing 102 laps.

Congratulations to Guillaume Vray, Mugen Seiki, RB Concept, Futaba and Pro-Line for a hard-fought victory in the 2004 IFMAR 1/8 Off-Road World Championship.

Tamiya TNX Wins Monster Madness II

Tamiya was the big winner at the second annual RC Car Action Monster Madness race, hosted by RC Madness in Enfield, CT. Team drivers Jimmy Jacobsen (who took the TQ spot) and David Jun dominated the small block class with their TNX trucks, besting a field that included Traxxas' hard-charging Steve Slayden and his Revo. Slayden was gaining on the front-running Tamiya drivers, but flamed out before he could close the gap. Jacobsen took the checkered flag with two laps on the field, followed by Jun and Slayden. Congratulations Tamiya!

OS .18 TZ shatters the two horsepower barrier!

OS .18 TZ shatters the two horsepower barrier!

Prior to our latest dyno test, the most powerful small-block engine we've tested was high-strung .12 competition engine. At 1.6 horsepower, this engine put out more power than any small block of any displacement - until now.

In a recent dyno test for an upcoming issue of RC Nitro magazine, the new OS .18 TZ rear-exhaust engine cranked out a record setting 2.28 bhp at 30,500 rpm. It shatters the 2hp barrier for small-block engines well before anyone else had a chance to get close, making more horsepower than four very prominent big-block engines we've previously tested. The TZ also set a new high mark for torque, measuring an amazing 83.1 oz.-in. at 25,850 rpm.

The new TZ is a ground-up design that features a 5-port configuration with a turbo head and crank. An all-new 3-needle 11K carb features a big 6.5mm venturi for better breathing. For more information on the .18 TZ and other engines, visit the O.S. Engines website. To discuss this new engine at the RC Zone, home of the best RC forums in the world, Click Here.
