Maxima have released first teaser images of their forthcoming B2X .21 nitro off-road engine. No detailed information are available yet but it is understood that the engine is based on the O.S. Speed B2102 and therefore you can expect a square stroke engine with low-profile cooling head, DLC-coated crankshaft, 3-needle carburettor and more. We bring you more information on the power plant as soon as they surface.
Coming soon from Maxima is the 2147 Dirt exhaust system. The EFRA-homologated pipe features a hard-coated surface for wear and easier cleaning, compared to standard polished exhausts that can become unsightly due to dirt and exhaust fumes in no time. On top of this the tuned pipe will also increase overall performance and it comes including a suitable manifold, silicone gaskets and mounting springs.
Following the GT1 3.5cc GT engine, Maxima have introduced the Mx R6 3.5cc on-road engine. The power plant is based on the O.S. Speed R2102 and underwent several modifications to further improve the performance. Tuned for the use with 16 percent nitro fuel the engine also features a DLC-coated and tungsten-weighted crankshaft, a new ceramic main bearing for decreased internal friction and an additional combustion camber insert allows for finer engine tuning when required. On top of this a low centre of gravity cooling head lowers the over CG of the car. The factory selected, modified and tuned engines become available very soon.

For the remaining year and for 2017 I will be driving Maxima Engines, a brand that doesn’t need any presentation with many top drivers and good results on its history. For now all I can say is that it looks very promising and I hope to achieve good results in a near future and help the team achieve even better performance with their products. This weekend I will have my first big test at the Euros, I am anxious, excited and super motivated to put to the test my new package against other top drivers. if anyone at the track needs help or any feedback about the products don’t hesitate to come to me, I will do my best to help in any way I can.
