We have managed to get our hands on the first information about the new, soon to be released, RB Products .12 touring car engine called the RB Concept R3. Rody Roem and the whole team at RB have been busy for many months working on this new motor and believe that it now reaches a new level of power while at the same time keeping the trademark drivability of the RB Concept line-up. This latest engine comes with a new bi-turbo crankshaft with a very aggressive timing, as used by the team drivers during the latest World Championship, and a new 3 port liner. The combustion chamber has been designed to decrease vibration and the fitting with the sleeve has also been improved. The R3 comes with a new lightened low profiled head to improve lower the overall center of gravity which aids the handling of your car. Expect to see this engine hit the shops in late June.
