Reds Racing have announced that Elliott Boots will be running Reds Racing electronics in the 1/10th and 1/8th classes in 2017. Elliott already uses the company’s nitro engines and now the former Tekin factory driver will get the full Reds Racing treatment by using their brushless motors and speed controllers also. Elliott will be a part of the development team helping to improve and enhance the electronics for the future, working along side head designer Marco Rossi.
Coming from Reds Racing is the M3 World Touring S V2.0 2.1cc on-road engine. The power plant features a new and advanced flat piston and combustion chamber design matched with extra long stroke geometry to produce extreme torque, more power and better fuel economy. Another main feature is the 7mm front crankshaft and bearing, made on purpose to assure higher stiffness and better performance. Furthermore, the WTS V2.0 features a stiffer crankcase and a new lightweight cooling system. Like every other Reds Racing engine, the V2.0 is hand-tuned by M. Rossi and comes with a silicone-filled, balanced and tuned crankshaft. Every single engine and part is hand-inspected and compression checked by Mario and Marco Rossi. The engine is also available pre-broken in, reducing the overall break-in time and making for quicker track action.
Italian company Reds Racing have announced the signing of Felix Law to their team. The newly-signed Serpent Asia driver will be running the engines in both his 1/8th on-road and off-road cars and also at select 1/10th scale events.
Reds Racing have introduced the Factory Team Worlds Edition 2016 nitro off-road engine. The power plant is limited to 300 pieces world wide and was originally planned as a factory team edition only. Due to popular demand the engine is now also available to the public and ideal for all applications where high power, high torque and good fuel economy is required. Made to the same specifications as the engines of the Reds Racing factory team, racers can now enjoy the same power as Elliott Boots, Ryan Maifield, Cody King, Cole Ogden and Alex Zanchettin all of which will attend the Las Vegas based IFMAR 1/8th Nitro Buggy Worlds in about two weeks time. The Team Package includes the Worlds Edition engine, 2112 pipe, M manifold, and 6.5mm, 7.0mm, and 7.5mm venturi inserts with the engine featuring an innovative W-Spec porting, a specially balanced crankshaft and the power plant also sports the proven HCX horizontal carburettor and a brand-new cooling head design. The combo is available with or without Reds Racing clutch system and also pre-run-in by Mario Rossi or Race Ready serviced by Elliott Boots.
Italian engine makers Reds Racing have introduced the new Reds Race Ready by Elliott Boots engines. These engines are the first of their kind and they allow racers to be able to utilise engines that have been broken in and race ready tuned by 2-times European Champion Elliott Boots. The break-in and final tuning will be made directly on the car using the best quality fuel to ensure performance and reliability with the engines being delivered ready for clutch and exhaust assembly and installation in the car. The break-in process allows to use the engine under race conditions from the get go with no additional run-in procedure necessary. The service is available on the Reds Racing R5T Team Edition and R7 Evoke engines and buyers can also choose to combine the engines in a combo kit with their own exhaust and/or Quattro clutch system that will be broken in as well.
Reds Racing have introduced new high torque variants of their VX 540 13.5T and 21.5T brushless motors. Both offer increased low-RPM torque which can be beneficial especially in high-traction conditions while the top speed remains unchanged compared to the standard motors. The high torque variants, dedicated for blinky touring and formula racing, are also meant to run cooler and with a higher overall performance.
Italian company Reds Racing have introduced their new R5R engine combo packages. Available in two specifications both include the R5R Racer 3.0 engine, Reds Racing 2104 pipe combined with S manifold, as well as 6.5 and 7.0 mm venturi inserts. What separates them is the Quattro clutch system as the combos are available with or without the popular 4-shoe clutch. As for the R5R Racer V3.0 engine, it features the HCX horizontal carburettor, silicon-filled and tuned crankshaft, sleeve with 5 inlet ports and classic exhaust port, high-sealing front bearing, and rear high-quality chrome steel bearing. All parts are matched, measured by Mario Rossi within certain tolerances and hand-built by him personally.
Italian company Reds Racing have introduced the Gen2 venturi inserts for 3.5cc off-road and on-road engines. The off-road specific Gen2 venturis are available in 6mm, 6.5mm, 7mm and a new 7.5mm variant with the innovative design improving fuel mileage and torque while also making for better tuning stability. The on-road Gen2 venturi is available in 8mm, 8.5mm and 9mm variants and it features a higher torque, maintaining mid and top range power and fuel consumption.
