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.
Reds Racing have introduced their all-new M7 WCS V3.0 Factory Tuned 3.5cc nitro on-road engine. It features a new crankshaft for increased power output and reliability as it is made from a specially-coated carbon steel. A silicone filling of the crankshaft reduces the inertia of rotation and the engine also comes with a new cooling system and a Japan-made 7x19x6mm front bearing. The package is rounded out by a redesigned crankcase and combustion camber insert as well as the Gen2 venturi and a new low-speed needle.
Reds Racing have introduced two new front plates for the Quattro clutch system. They allow for more pre-tension on the springs and better snap, typically used in truggy applications. The plates are available in XH and XXH variants, adding to the already existing L and H plates. Reds Racing recommends to use the new Pre-Tension tool for an easier assembly of the clutch.
Hot on the heels of Reds Racing’s R7 Evoke V3.0 engine comes the release of the R5T Team Edition V4.0. Representing the company’s highest performance 3.5cc engine the R5T Team Edition excels especially in high-bite conditions and ion tracks that require that little extra bottom end power. New for 2016 comes a special sealing system for the combustion camber insert that keeps dust and dirt away from the redesigned internals. Also new is the Gen2 venturi for improved milage and tunability. Another feature is the low centre of gravity design thanks to redesigned parts such as the crankcase, cooling head and combustion camber insert. The engine also features Reds Racing’s renown Black Diamond backplate for reduced friction and it is hand-made, hand-tuned and hand-assembled for the highest possible quality and performance.
Reds Racing have announced the release of the new R7 Evoke V3.0 Mario Rossi tuned .21 off-road engine. The engine represents the company’s latest high performance offering and it was designed with improved fuel efficiency, performance and reliability in mind. Like the previous lineup, the R7 Evoke is specially aimed at the use on low grip and narrow circuits where the smoother torque curve of the engine can give an advantage. New to the 7-port long-stroke engine is a new combustion camber sealing that helps to keep dirt away from the redesigned internals. Also new are the lightweight crankcase and cooling head, all adding to a lower centre of gravity engine while the tuned crankshaft, made from special carbon steel, comes double balanced and silicone-filled for maximised engine performance. Part of the package is also the Diamond backplate with a special anti-friction hard-coating that reduces the conrod-backplate friction for improved engine efficiency and performance. Rounding out the hand-made, hand-tuned and hand-assembled V3.0 engine are a high-quality, Japanese-made steel front and Swiss-made steel-ceramic rear bearing.
Reds Racing have introduced the Durabell 1/8th off-road competition clutch bell. Made of high quality steel and sporting a special coating treatment the teeth last longer compared to standard clutch bells, making for greater consistency and reliability. A special vented design also guarantees lower temperatures and improved clutch shoe engagement for a longer life of both the bell and clutch shoes. The Durabell is available in 13 and 14 teeth version only and it is suitable for Kyosho, Mugen, JQ, Xray, Associated, Hot Bodies, Serpent, and Xray but it does not replace Reds Racing’s standard 13 and 14 teeth clutch bells.
