Werks announce B7 Kortz Engine


See Werks Racing & JC Racing Products

After a few days of rumours, Werks have gone public with the news of their .21 B7 Kortz Edition – Werks Racing’s newest addition to it’s “Team Line” of engines. A special engine to celebrate the 10+ years that RC Pro Jeremy Kortz has been competing with Werks Engines! Designed from the ground up to represent the ultimate .21 off-road buggy racing engine incorporating all of the best features and machining possible!

The B7 Kortz Edition starts off with our proven case design that features additional stiffening ribs around the sleeve area to help better control expansion due to heat. We have significantly modified the top of the case to reduce mass and developed a new recessed cooling head design that completely envelopes the top section of the engine case. This new design not only greatly reduces the overall height and CG of the engine but also significantly improves cooling!

A new long stroke 7 port design offers tremendous torque with exceptional top end with what is to date the smoothest, most linear power band of any engine that we have ever made! This super linear power band is ideal for buggy racing and allows you to easily modulate throttle inputs!

New Werks in the works ?


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.

Ed Kerry signs to Werks

Ed Kerry signs to Werks for 2012….
We would like to Welcome Ed Kerry to the Werks Racing Team. When first talking to the 2011 British Truggy Champion, we knew the engine would have to deliver in all areas, and more. Ed who is also a regular top 10 finisher in the National Buggy Series was sent a B6 Pro + 2058 pipe-set for testing, and to our delight the engine delivered. Ed commented on the amazing power capacity and superb run-time, which is essential at this level. Testing will continue over the winter and all set-ups and tuning advice will be posted on the website for truggy and buggy, with the B5 also being tested with various pipe-set /clutch configurations. Ed is looking forward massively to the 2012 season and can be spotted at many events throughout the UK and Europe along with is pitman (father) Les. They are both very approachable and will gladly advice or help with any of the Werks products.

Chad Bradley now Werks powered

Amain Hobbies / JQ Products driver Chad Bradley has made the engine move from OS power to run the Werks engine. Chad is no stranger to the Werks team having run their popular fuel for some time already. Chad wasted no time in acquainting himself with the Werks powerplant having his debut at Hot Rod’s Tuesday Night Nationals this week.

Werks boss Ron Hopkins posted the following on RC Tech confirming the move, “I am happy to say that Chad Bradley has decided to come on board and run Werks engines! Chad is coming aboard after a long stint with OS engines and we are extremely happy to have Chad on board to help us both from a racing stand point as well as with engine development. He truly is an asset and having been his fuel sponsor for the last 7 or so years I know that he is also one of the hardest working drivers in the industry!
