See: 6MIK

Our friends at 6MIK have sent us a teaser of their new Optima nitro engine called Tigre. The Tigre is added to the Optima engine range which already includes the SLR 5 and it sports a unique look compared to the other engine on the market. The first thing that is visible is the specific cooling head, which is not very high but has thick cooling fins to improve cooling efficiency as well as handling. It is expected that the engine base could be from Team Orion or Performa engines. The black coating with golden details will surely turn heads in the pit and on the track!
