Reds Racing have released their new M3 World Touring S, a 2.1cc engine for the 1/10th 200mm Sedan class. The new engine offers the most advanced technologies to get the best performance and reliability.

Another feature is the all-new 7mm front crankshaft and bearing, made on purpose to guarantee higher stiffness and better performance. Furthermore, the WTS features a stiffer crankcase and a new lightweight cooling system. The engine is also meant to be one of the lightest in its category thanks to a redesigned cooling head and due to a new combustion chamber and back-plate design. The M3 WTS is hand-tuned by Mario Rossi and comes with a silicone-filled, balanced and tuned crankshaft and before leaving the factory each engine is hand inspected and compression checked by Mario Rossi for maximised performance.

Following the introduction of their 2015 nitro off-road engine range French company RB now have information on two new on-road engines available. The super long stroke CXR SLS9 V2 is available in a standard and a special Ielasi Tuned version for even higher performance. Based on the 2014 range the V2 offers a 9-port design with two by-passes, the Multi Exhaust System and two additional lubrication wholes and the engines make use of a lightened and silicone paste filled 14.5mm crankshaft with 3-weight balancing. The rear bearing is a 14.5mm ceramic race while the front 8-ball type is a standard affair. The new low centre of gravity lightweight cooling head offers 10 degree angled cooling fins for improved heat dissipation and the double adjustment carburettor comes with 9mm and 8.5mm restrictors. While looking the same from the outside – despite the Ielasi Tuned engraving on the cooling head– the powered-up version of the CXR SLS9 V2 features subtle modifications to the liner and crankshaft, made by the Italian frontrunner to extract the maximum performance from the engine.

New from Orcan comes the Push Box, a specially designed part to improve engine performance and mileage. Used in prototype form by Alexander Hagberg to win the 2014 IFMAR 200mm Worlds the Push Box is made to become looped in the pressure line between the exhaust and the fuel tank and it makes for a more reliable and constant engine performance especially right after refuelling when running with high fuel levels as it prevents the engine from running too rich.
