Sonic Nitro Engines have introduced their new competition buggy engine called the SB.21-5T. All components have been made from the finest materials to ensure high durability and reliability. Equipped with a 5 port sleeve and a CNC machined flat piston, the engine provides great power over the entire RPM range while having a very efficient fuel consumption which is crucial in the finals. The 14mm turbo crankshaft is equipped with two high density weights to improve the overall balance and filled with a silicone insert to reduce the inertia and improve the fuel flow. The special back plate, the optimized crankcase and the “knife edged” aerodynamic conrod help to further reduce turbulence inside the engine. A special lightweight cooling head ensures excellent heat dispersion to keep the engine temperature at a good level. High quality Swiss ball bearings, a dust protected front bearing, a modern composite valve carburettor and venturis in 6.5mm, 7.0mm and 8.0mm made of aluminium complete this new high competition engine.

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.

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.
Coming from Schumacher is the Contact Oval engine for 1/8th scale oval stock cars. Made in collaboration with legendary nitro engine manufacturer Picco the engine was specially designed to meet with the requirements of 1/8th stock car racing with a lot of bottom end torque and power with relatively low RPM. The new Contact engine achieves that with this engine due in part to its low exhaust port.
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.
