During the European 1/8 scale Buggy Championships in Germany, Marco Rossi showed us the latest Reds Racing buggy engine, the R5T. Tuned by M. Rossi, the completely new designed long stroke 5-port motor features a new exhaust port with a booster function for increased acceleration, a new port design for better fuel economy, a new CNC-machined piston and an updated 14mm balanced crankshaft. Other features include ultra-high-quality Swiss ball bearings, a new composite slide carburetor and a cooled combustion chamber. Also new is a lightweight crankcase and cooling head with updated head design for a lower centre of gravity. The R5T will substitute the older XR line and becomes available starting from October 2011.
