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.
Reds Racing have introduced their updated 4-shoe off-road clutch system. Developed to make the engine power output smoother and more linear, the clutch will also provide exceptional traction, vehicle driveability and low fuel consumption. The updated clutch features three preload adjustments on the front plate to fit any type of surface and engine output. Drivers can change the spring preload on the front plate from a high, medium or low position and choose between 1.0mm or optional 1.1mm springs. Additional XH and XXH front plates have been specifically developed for the truggy class and available only as option parts. The new hybrid 7075 aluminium and carbon clutch shoes have been redesigned to increase wear resistance and in addition, the new shoes are lighter, to allow for and engage at higher revs and lower inertia to rotation. The clutch can be used in standard dual aluminium and carbon shoe configuration for most tracks or as triple aluminium and single carbon setup for high grip conditions. In addition, Reds have also introduced new 32mm and 34mm low inertia flywheels as option as the set comes with a medium inertia flywheel from standard.
Reds Racing have announced that their WR7 Diamond 3.5cc buggy engine is now available in two different variants, as LTD standard and new HE High Efficiency LTD edition. The WR7 LTD offers the classic high-power 7-ports powered band while the HE High Efficiency variant utilises a low fuel consumption system and smooth power band for improved drivability. In addition both engines come with the improved HCX carburettor that sports a redesigned low speed needle and a new 7075 aluminium fuel intake for improved tuning stability in extreme temperatures.
Reds Racing have introduced their new WR5 Black Diamond LTD engine. The Limited Edition engine utilises 5-ports, with special features based on the famous R5T Team Edition engine that has been a staple in the Reds lineup for 6 years. Available in two different models, the WR5 Black Diamond and WR5 Black Diamond HE High Efficiency, the latter version features low fuel consumption and smooth power band for high drivability. Reds have also improved the engine with a Black Diamond DLC Coated crankshaft which can last approximately 3-4 times more than a standard crankshaft thanks to the extreme hardness and low friction of the diamond coating. Even the conrod life is increased by about 50%. Supplied with an improved HCX carburettor featuring a new Flow Improved low speed needle and new 7075 aluminium fuel intake for improved tuning stability in extreme temperatures. Finally, the WR5 comes with a brand new black gloss cooling head which features an innovative design for improved air flow in order to increase the cooling and guarantee a low centre of gravity. The new cooling head is 10% lighter than the previous 5 ports generation.
