Reds Racing have released their new clutch retainer kit for TLR and Tekno vehicles as well as heavy duty clutch bearings. Starting with the clutch retainer, the set includes an alloy steel washer and high-quality screw that allow to use the Reds Racing Durabell and Tetra clutch systems on TLR and Tekno RC kits. The set captures the bearing and clutch bell to keep everything in place, even in the event of a bearing failure. Also new are 5x13x4mm heavy duty metal-shielded clutch ball bearings. They are made in Japan and offer exceptional durability even in severe racing conditions.
Reds Racing have introduced their new VX2 540-size brushless motor line. With a new low internal resistance design the motor offers improved performance and efficiency while the new high airflow can enhances cooling efficiency by 20 percent compared to the 1st generation motor. The new high power stator does away with a separate insulator which reduces weight and improves cooling while pure copper wires and low resistance collector rings guarantee a maximum in power and RPM. The motor complies with IFMAR, ROAR, BRCA and JMRCA rules and it is available in 5.5T to 8.5T modified as well as 10.5T, 13.5T, 17.5T, 21.5T and 25.5T stock windings.
Coming soon from Reds Racing is their new X-One off-road exhaust system. It features an innovative design with the exhaust pipe coming welded to the manifold in order to improve performance and fuel consumption. Furthermore with the new X-One layout there is no need of using or replacing springs or gaskets which equals better reliability and tuning stability. The exhaust system is set for a release in March and more information and images should become available in time for the release.
Italian company Reds Racing have introduced their new WRX Corsa Lunga 3.5cc nitro off-road engine. The long stroke extreme torque power plant was developed for medium to high grip tracks and it offers an extra long stroke design, five scavenger ports and a single exhaust port cylinder sleeve to deliver a 20,000 RPM range of usable torque while offering exceptional mileage. The engine is equipped with a DLC-coated crankshaft and backplate for up to 3-times the lifespan of conventional steel crankshafts and a new cooling system allows the engine to perform at its best even in very hot ambient temperatures. Other features include the proven HCX carburettor, and the engine comes tuned and assembled using hand-inspected parts and following a compression check.
Reds Racing have released a teaser image for their forthcoming new nitro off-road engine. Understood to make use of a long stroke design, the engine for now is called the Torque Monster and all information should be come available in time for the release.
Reds Racing have expanded their off-road manifold range by adding the new long “L” manifold to the current medium, short and extra short offerings. Each manifold has been designed for different track conditions and to optimise performance. The new long version allows to increase the engine’s performance at low and medium RPM for a better throttle feeling. It is recommended for high grip tracks, however the top speed will be lower compared to the shorter manifolds.
Coming from Reds Racing is their specially-formulated high-quality air filter oil. The specific lube was designed for the use with off-road engines and its blue colour makes soaking air filter foams evenly a breeze. The super tacky, water repellent formula helps to reduce sand and dust influence on the engine while ensuring a high airflow for best possible engine performance.
Coming from Reds Racing are their new Durabell series 13T and 14T clutch bells for TLR and Tekno cars. The clutch bells are made of high-quality steel and the special coating treatment allows the teeth to last longer compared to standard clutch bells, transferring power from the clutch to the spur gear and the rest of the drive train with consistency and reliability. A special vented design also guarantees lower temperatures and cleaner clutch shoe engagement for a longer life of both bell and clutch shoes. The inner diameter of the bell is 26.6mm and it uses a 5x10x4mm front and 5x13x4mm rear bearing.
