The 160A-rated ESC will be usable for Modified and Stock racing alike, it is 2S LiPo-compatible, measures 31x40x19.5mm and will feature a switchable 6V/7.4V 6A BEC system. A build-in on/off switch and black receiver wire round out the package. Full information on the features and specifications will become available in time for the release.
Reds Racing have announced the addition of UK’s Jamie Clancy to their team for the 2018 and 2019 racing season. Jamie will be using Reds Racing engines and accessories during his campaign and he had the following to say:
I am very excited to race for Reds Racing for the seasons ahead, thanks to Marco and Mario for this opportunity to race for such a great team with great engines and accessories.
Available now is Reds Racing’s M7 WCX Corsa Lunga 3.5cc nitro on-road engine. The new power plant is a seven special ports extreme power engine that sports a brand new cooling head which features an updated design for improved airflow to increase the cooling and ensure a low centre of gravity. The crankcase, the new head and the combustion chamber have been redesigned to improve cooling consistently and the new cooling system, besides improving cooling and reliability, also improves engine performance and fuel efficiency. The engine comes with a DLC-coated crankshaft and backplate for improved engine durability and the on-road carburettor has been redesigned to get greater idle stability, more precise tuning and improved power delivery.
Reds Racing have announced the release of their new M5 GT Corsa Lunga nitro engines for 1/8th GT vehicles. The power plant is available in two specifications, as M5 GT and M5 GT Ceramic. Both are long stroke on-road based engines with their new carburettors being designed specifically for on-road racing to ensure high performance and precise tuning. Other features include silicon filled and tuned crankshafts, sleeves with five inlet ports and three exhaust ports, high performance Japanese-made front and Swiss-made rear ball bearings with the Ceramic spec engine utilising a rear Swiss-made ceramic main bearing. Both M5 GT engines come with a Japanese-made Reds Racing TS7 glow plug for easier tuning and high reliability starting from the break-in process.
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.
