ESP modified big-bore combo kit

ESP modified big-bore combo kit

If displacement is what you crave, look no further. This ESP modified big-bore combo kit will allow you to convert your current HPI Baja 5b engine into a 30.5cc 4HP performance monster. Feel the power that only a larger engine can provide. This kit is a TORQUE MONSTER, with killer low end and midrange power.

ESP modifies this cylinder by machining at the head. The stock HPI Baja 5b 36mm cylinder does not have room for the longer crankshaft in this kit, so ESP has machined out the proper spacing. This is a more efficient and reliable solution than stacking gaskets to achieve the needed space, as there is proper spark plug clearance and the piston ring remains in the well-plated area of the cylinder. The squish band is cut so there will be .020"-.025" of squish (using the stock .020" cylinder gasket), and the combustion chamber is machined to get the compression ratio down to 14:1 for running on premium pump 91 or higher octane gasoline. These cylinders are not ported - the port timing and shape is still stock.

Kyosho Inferno MP777 WC

Based on the Kyosho MP777 SP2, the new Kyosho Inferno MP777 WC (World Champion) Edition will include many of the option parts develop over the last year in anticipation of the World Championship race. Each of the upgraded parts makes incremental improvements to what is already the most successful line of competition nitro off-road racers in the history of RC racing.

Using the Kyosho 777 SP2 as the foundation of the Kyosho Inferno MP777 WC Team Edition means the SP2 will benefit from all the parts developed for the WC Edition. In fact, many of the parts that will be included in the Kyosho Inferno MP777 WC Team Edition kit are already available as option parts for the Kyosho SP2. So if you're in the market for a new buggy and you want the best-equipped model available, the Kyosho Inferno MP777 WC Team Edition is the clear choice. The total retail cost of the additional factory performance parts that are now standard in the Kyosho Inferno MP777 WC Team Edition total more than $290, but the street price will only increase by $10 over the Kyosho SP2! That's $280 worth of extra value for FREE! Current SP2 owners can also upgrade with available option parts.

Serpent 960FD Edition

To commemorate Fabio Domanins commanding win at this years 1/8th scale European Championships in Sweden, Serpent have released this FD edition of the title winning Serpent 960. The Serpent 960FD is a feature-laden kit that comes complete with harder rear wishbones and front bearing blocks for better impact resistance and a number or optional parts as standard.

Serpent 960 FD Features:

Side plate T2 with alu insert set

Side plate T2 with alu insert set: Featuring a revised carbon plate design, it now works in conjunction with the supplied aluminium insert to eliminate flex in the gearbox shaft. The aluminium insert fits in the space where the original larger 2-speed shaft bearing sits and becomes the mount for the now smaller supplied bearing. This insert is in turn kept in place by the carbon side plate which, as well as performing its primary function, now works to prevent any flex from occurring in the 2-speed shaft too.
