See LMR’s clothing page
Not content with keeping yourself and loved ones warm, LMR have also released open cell inserts for 1/10th Offroad they’re calling ‘KangaWallaFox‘ – Yes we don’t have a clue either…
“The Kangawallafox is described as a vicious nocturnal creature native to Australia, which is the result of the natural cross breeding between kangaroos, wallaby’s and foxes. Because of it’s highly vicious nature it will eat it’s competition as well as any other living organisms. Often seen only for a split second, whilst hunting its prey, jumping out in front of cars often to try and devour them.”
Sounds like Lee’s been eating a bit too much of his youngest’s (James) baby food!

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.
