RB Engine Protect system
Seen in our Toy Fair coverage, RB have now released their new front bearing protector, the Engine Protect. Front bearings are not 100% sealed and let dust get inside the engine, causing both the bearing and engine to suffer and wear out prematurely thus creating many problems as compression loss, flaming out and expensive repair costs. RB studied this problem and developed the engine protect, a machined and treated steel disc that only weights 2.4 grams and fits most .21 and .28 engines. Recommended for buggy, truggy and 1/8 On-Road on a soaking wet track, it protects the bearing by preventing dust from getting in, thus increasing engine life and performance.
