This is the Werks Racing Team Line B5 .21 Off-Road Turbo Plug Buggy Engine. This engine is known for making amazing low end power, with great top end performance and incredible runtime! After months of exhaustive testing under grueling racing conditions Werks Racing is pleased to announce the release of it's new Team Line B5 .21 racing engine! Utilizing Werks Racing's first ever 5+2 port sleeve design, the B5 engine has been designed from the ground up to provide the maximum amount of performance, run time and drive-ability at an amazingly affordable price! The B5 has already been proven in actual racing conditions even before it was released with Werks team driver Jeremy Kortz using a single, final specification B5 engine to take 2nd place at the RC Pro Series Australia race, as well as a A-main finish at the 2009 ROAR US Buggy Nationals!
The B5 engine features Werks Racing's unique "Team Line" split transfer case design with their signature stiffening ribs around the sleeve area of the case to control expansion. The 5+2 port, ABC construction sleeve and high-silicon aluminum alloy piston have been hand matched for optimum performance and life span. This engine also features a 7075 T6 knife edged connecting rod, a 2 needle carburetor with adjustable venturi (7mm stock), as well as high quality "Swiss" racing bearings, a turbo head button and a CNC machined & lightened, low CG cooling head design! This engine is packed full of features that are normally set aside for much more expensive models and at a price that is comparable to a sport level engine. Performance, affordability, longevity...Get Werks, or get worked!
NOTE: The Werks B5 now includes the re-designed "2010 Model" Werks Carburetor. The "2010 Model" Carburetor is a completely re-designed aluminum carburetor that has been developed and tested over the last 2 years in real world racing conditions. This aluminum body carburetor features a two needle design, and a carburetor neck insulator, to provide a more stable tune, idle, simplified adjustment and a greater level of consistency compared to the carburetor that was previously included with the B5. This carburetor uses re-designed venturi inserts compared to the previous composite carburetor, so the venturi's intended for use with the composite carburetor are not compatible with this model.
The tuned pipes recommended for this engine are the Werks 2013 for strong top and bottom power delivery, 2058 for top end power, or 2057 for smooth power with improved mileage.
NOTE: This engine does not include a glow plug. The glow plugs recommended by Werks for this engine are the Werks TLP5BT, the O.S. P3 and the O'Donnell 97T.
