Having brought you the first photos and information on the new B01 engine from TecnoPower, the Italian company has released further details about their new buggy motor. The engine features a chrome-plated 5-port liner with 5 intakes and 1 exhaust for high durability and long life, with the fully machined silicon charged aluminium piston sports specially designed lubrication rings for low friction properties between the piston and sleeve. The new developed slide valve carburetor and 7mm venturi allows quick and easy tuning to specific race conditions and to keep things as simple as possible for the user, this specific carburetor has only 3 possible adjustments, high speed-needle, idle-needle and air-screw. The SG, or now also called SPT, style 14mm crankshaft in the B01-21 is made from a special steel containing an unique composition that has been heat-treated, machined and finished to perfection and with no need for extra counter weights it’s also lighter. The special shape of the crankshaft, and specially developed internal diameter, provides a special flux for an optimum fuel-air mixture.
Continue to go through the various components, the conrod has been made out of the best aluminium available and its knife-edged design made to reduce internal turbulence, while a specially selected bronze material for the bushing is used to decrease the internal friction and wear. A new special method to lubricate the crankshaft-pin is used for this conrod to increase the lubrication film and reduce friction. The specially selected bearings chosen for these engines are of the high-speed type to obtain the highest reliability and performance, while the glow plugs used for the “B01” are of the conical/turbo type and made out of stainless steel.
