Italian company Reds Racing have introduced their new WR7 Diamond 3.5cc nitro off-road engine. Based off of the popular R7 World Edition engine, the new power plant is of a high-torque design and it features a DLC-coated crankshaft and backplate for reduced internal friction and improved durability while utilising a redesigned crankcase, cooling head and combustion camber insert to further improve performance and durability. Of a high-power 7-port design the power plant features an exhaust port with boosters to improve mileage and to provide a smooth yet powerful power delivery. Part of the engine package are also the renown HCX carburettor with Gen 2 venturi insert, anew lightweight and low centre of gravity cooling head and each engine comes with a hand-tuned, silicone-filled, balanced and tuned crankshaft, a work that is carried out by Reds’ own M. Rossi. The engine is available separately, pre-broken-in by M. Rossi, as Elliott Boots Race Ready edition, including the Reds 2143+S exhaust or as all-out combo package including the 2143+S exhaust and Reds’s own Quattro clutch.

Italian company Reds Racing have introduced the all-new R7 Evoke V4.0 nitro off-road engine. Specially aimed at the use on low-grip and narrow tracks where the torque curve of the engine can give an advantage, the power plant has been redesigned internally for an improved fuel consumption and bottom torque. Reds Racing also worked on areas such as sleeve, piston, combustion chamber and crankshaft. The features list includes the proven HCX carburettor with Gen2 venturi, the Anti-Dirt sealing system, Diamond hard-coated backplate, a balanced crankshaft, and a brand-new cooling head design.

Coming from Reds Racing is the new EFRA 2143 off-road exhaust pipe. Designed to improve fuel economy and torque of Reds Racing’s own engines, the pipe, in combination with the S manifold, will increase the runtime by about 30 to 40 seconds, depending on the track and surface grip. This means up to nine minutes of runtime can be achieved with the Reds Racing R7 Evoke and the Quattro 4-shoe clutch. Additionally the torque will be increased by about 5 percent, and a more precise throttle response in the low to mid RPM range can be felt. The pipe is available separately or including the S manifold.
