Ty Tessmann tore up the track at the 2014 IFMAR 1/8 Scale Off-Road World Championships running an O.S. Speed Tuned B2101 engine tailored to his winning specs. Now O.S. makes that same setup available to other drivers — in the Ty Tessmann Limited Edition Speed Tuned B2101.
The Limited Edition B2101 features the same tuned pipe, manifold and carb restrictor used by Ty to win the 2014 IFMAR Championships. Its T-2090SC pipe is paired with an M2002SC manifold whose added length increases torque in the low to middle range. The 5.8mm restrictor — not available on any other O.S. engine — matches what O.S. supplied to Ty for extending run time in competition.

LRP is proud to announce that Italian top talent, Davide Ongaro, has joined LRP and as of this season will use the LRP ZZ.21C Ceramic Spec.2 Nitro Competition Engine for his 1/8 offroad racing.
Davide Ongaro is one of the rising stars in the international offroad racing scene. In his home country Italy, he’s regularly among the top drivers at prestigious national races. At the 2014 IFMAR 1/8 Offroad Worlds, Davide made it to the ¼ final. This is even more impressing, as his speed would have been fast enough for the semi-final but he suffered from badluck and had to retire.
