Reds Racing 521 GTS engine

Reds Racing have introduce their new generation of nitro GT engines called the 521 GTS. The new engine, available in steel or ceramic bearing versions, features high reliability, tuning stability and great fuel mileage, combined with specific technical changes in the porting and new materials. This 5 port engine claims to offer higher power and better fuel efficiency compared to other engines. The S line features a new and unique high stiffness crankcase design and uses all new materials and casting technology. The engine is produced with pressure die casting, which is a very high quality process, while previous generation R line crankcase was with gravity casting. Another big improvement is the brand new aluminium carburettor, again made using pressure die casting. The decision to change carburettor materials from plastic to aluminium further improves idle stability and tuning. The new carburettor is 30° inclined for better fluid dynamics to increase engine power and has an insulator to reduce carburettor temperature and increase idle stability at high temperatures.

Exotek F1Ultra extra stiff chassis & ball diff axle

For the F1Ultra, Exotek have produced this new optional extra stiff chassis designed for extra high grip smooth tracks. Made in the USA from 2.5mm quasi weave carbon fibre there is now also a new extra short wheel base setting (2mm shorter than the stock short wheelbase) and there is an extra chassis hole for 1/12 servo mounting. Also for the same car is a heavy duty steel ball diff axle. The 1-piece shaft offers maximum durability and also provides extra rear weight (shafts weighs ~26grams) for more traction in low grip conditions. Solid on the right side and hollowed on the left side to help balance the rear pod, the alloy diff ring mount is a direct fit for the F1Ultra stock ball diff.

In what is a very clever design that manages to seamlessly integrate the electronics, the motor and drive train are mounted inside a scale looking engine and gearbox with the steering servo, ESC and receiver in the footwell of the car. Using a majority of 3D printed parts, printed with carbon fibre and glass fibre reinforced nylon, it does also feature a rear gear differential, period authentic CVDs, full ball bearings and scale body shell. Currently set for a release in February next year, they are taking pre orders on their website.
