Reds Racing have new R5 buggy engines available in the form of the R5T Team Edition and the R5 Racer. The 2014 versions both feature a new front ball bearing with improved sealing and better durability, a redesigned crankcase with wider fins close to the exhaust makes for better cooling and the power plants also come with a new combustion camber insert and cooling head. The R5T Team Edition is hand-tuned by Mario Rossi and comes with a silicone-filled, balanced and tuned crankshaft, rear ceramic bearing, RDC hard-coated backplate, 5-port sleeve with exhaust port booster and a long needle carburettor. Before leaving the factory the engine is hand inspected and compression checked for maximized performance.
The R5 Racer features a silicone-filled and tuned crankshaft, 5-port sleeve with conventional exhaust port, steel main bearing and long needle carburettor. Like the Team Edition the Racer is hand-build by Mario Rossi using measured and matched parts.
