Sonic Nitro Engines V.12T 2.1cc TC engine

Sonic Nitro Engines have released details on their V.12T 2.1cc touring car engine. All components have been made from the finest materials to ensure high durability and reliability. Equipped with a 3 ports sleeve with ‘teardrop’ work and a CNC machined flat piston, the engine provides great power over the entire RPM range while having a very efficient fuel consumption. The 12mm turbo crankshaft is filled with a silicone insert to reduce the inertia and improve the fuel flow while the special back plate, the optimized crankcase and the the ‘knife edged’ aerodynamic connecting rod help even more to reduce turbulence inside the engine. A special turbo combustion chamber with a cooling fin and the super lightweight cooling head ensure best heat dispersion to keep the engine temperature at a moderate level. High quality Swiss ball bearings, a modern composite valve carburetor and a 5,4mm aluminium venturi complete this new high competition engine. All Sonic engines will be available from next week on.
