Nemo Racing have released first information on the forthcoming Bullitt B221 3.5cc nitro off-road engine. The power plant builds on the proven B220 engine and is meant to produce improved bottom end and mid range power, it will feature a super smooth power curve and increased mileage. The Japan-engineered engine will hit stores by end of December.
Novarossi have introduced their new Mito 12 World Champion engine, as used by Dominic Greiner to win the 1/10th 200mm World Championships earlier this year. The new motor is slightly lighter than its predecessor, while the crankshaft has slightly reduced rotational mass and greatly improved fuel flow for improved performance. The package is completed with the updated cooling head that sports the WC Italy tag.
Coming from Italian brand Tesla is the new GT5 Black Edition 5-port 3.5cc engine. The latest version of the GT engine offers improved top speed and mid-range power while maintaining a low fuel consumption thanks to optimised internal mixture flow. The engine also sports a redesigned, black anodised cooling head for improved temperature management and it is available now.
FX Engines have added a new Short-Medium manifold to their line-up. A combination of short and medium manifold which makes it more universal and compatible with the majority of tracks, it was developed & designed to work well with mufflers 2131 and 2068. Suitable for larger tracks, where more bottom end punch is required than the short manifold.
Picco have introduced their new high-end competition nitro engines in the form of the V1 Team DLC CER off-road and R1 Team DLC CER on-road engine. Starting with the off-road power plant, the V1 is the brand’s new top-of-the-foodchain engine and already achieved the Italian National Championship title in prototype stages in the hands of Marco Baruffolo. The engine features a new crankcase that is designed to be stiffer so that the absence of torsion allows for a more stable performance at any temperature while preventing RPM loss. On top of a 5-port sleeve, the V1 also features a longer stroke and a new crankshaft that received a DLC-coating treatment to ensure a very low crankpin wear while protecting the shaft from oxidations of any kind for a long life of the part. The carburettor now sports a double bottom-end adjustment for finer tuning and a better mixture flow, and the engine’s main bearing is of a high-quality ceramic type.
MCD Racing have introduced an aluminium carburettor insulator for the Zenoah G320 engine. The aluminium construction fixes flexing issues associated with the standard composite part that can overheat during long runs. In addition the alloy part utilises two composite bushings that help with isolation for an overall better performing assembly and thus engine. Available are also separate sets of temperature plates and gaskets.
Max Power keep updating their nitro engine line with the latest addition being the TQ-S 2017 2.1cc 1/10th scale engine. Changes made compared to the previous power plant include a new back plate with flow cuts, an updated timing and the sleeve features extra cut-outs for improved mixture flow. The engine is rounded out by a new, silver anodised cooling head for maximised cooling efficiency.
RMV Deutschland have introduced the Reckward-Tuning glow plug inspection tool. Designed by Merlin Depta and made in Germany the tool allows to inspect all Turbo-style glow plugs in order to rate their condition and also parameters such as carburettor settings and more. The tool is pretty simple to use; screw in the glow plug, switch on the lighting and the included loupe will show the glow plug coil in 50-times magnification. Included with the tool comes a handy pouch for easy storage and transportation.
