Whilst the dust will have settled long ago on The Dirt Nitro Challenge back in February, we did note that a certain Jeremy Kortz – quite the legend in 1/8 Offroad having featured in no less than 4 1/8 Buggy IFMAR Worlds finals (only 3 drivers have more… Reckward, Pavidis & Batlle) was running a shiny (yet plain) new cooling head on top of his Werks powerplant.

There were a few hints as to something new under the hood, but nothing confirmed at that stage however strong rumours have surfaced once more that Werks may have a new motor in the near future. Watch this space.
