SMI from Germany have introduced their new Orcan RSR-MH 2.1cc competition nitro on-road engine. Based on the popular RSR3-MH Sound of Racing engine, the RSR-MH has been upgraded and reminded for 2018. The most prominent feature of the are power plant is a shim that is located under the sleeve that can be added or removed to change the timing and thus the performance characteristics. With the shim fitted, the RSR-MH’s timing is set up exactly like the 2017 RSR3-MH, making it perfect for medium-sized and large tracks. Removing the shim changes the timing to deliver outstanding drivability and extra torque. This also reduces fuel consumption, restricts the maximum RPM and thus limits top speed. As on previous models, the carburettor comes complete with insulating bushing. In addition, modified air intake characteristics deliver lightning fast responses to throttle input. The distinctive outer of the new motor has an aluminium-coloured cooling head engraved in grey with the insignia Orcan RSR-MH. The engine is a limited edition items of which only 44 units are available.
Orcan have introduced the new RSR3 2.11cc nitro on-road engine. Building on the success of the IFMAR World Championship wining RS3 the new engine features an updated sleeve timing for more torque, making adapting the engine to different race tracks and driving styles easier, while an increased cooling head surface improves heat dissipation to keep the engine within its optimum operating temperature range even in hot weather conditions. The engine is available in a standard variant without any modification and also as MH tuned variant to extract even more performance from the power plant. Last but not least is the RSR3-MH Sound of Racing Edition. Limited to 25 pieces world wide the engine comes MH tuned, with a timing shim, an engine bag and including a unique Orcan USB flash drive that features the Sound of Racing, a recording that mashes the unique Orcan engine sound with the tunes of Australian nitro racer and musician, Ricky Kradolfer.
Available now and limited to 25 units in total is SMI Motorsport’s Orcan RS3-MH CR Alexander Hagberg Edition 2.1cc nitro engine. The Novarossi-based 3-port engine comes hand-tuned for optimised performance and with a special Cesare Rossi engraving on the cooling head to honour the legendary Italian engine builder. Included in the Alexander Hagberg Edition set is also an Orcan 2654 exhaust with Alexander Hagberg engraving and S+ manifold, an Orcan Push Box, an Orcan XL transportation bag as well as a special edition Orcan T-shirt.
New from German brand Orcan come EFRA 2654 and EFRA 2669 pipes in a special “Tuned” variant. They offer an extremely thin wall thickness for maximised efficiency and extreme top RPM. Both include Orcan’s universal OA26C+ muffler that is the best all-round solution for most tracks. The more top-speed oriented AO26S+ and the more torquey OA26M+ manifold are available separately.
New from Orcan comes the Push Box, a specially designed part to improve engine performance and mileage. Used in prototype form by Alexander Hagberg to win the 2014 IFMAR 200mm Worlds the Push Box is made to become looped in the pressure line between the exhaust and the fuel tank and it makes for a more reliable and constant engine performance especially right after refuelling when running with high fuel levels as it prevents the engine from running too rich.
2014 IFMAR 200mm Nitro Touring Car World Champion Alexander Hagberg will continue to use Orcan and Hipex products in his 2015 campaign, the Swede announced. Alex’ 2015 race calendar sees appearances at the Euro Nitro Series, the EFRA Euros and the Swedish Cup events and Alexander has the following to say:
After the big success with our IFMAR WC title in 2014 we decided to continue our successful co-operation which means that I will be using Orcan engines, Hipex mufflers, Orcan fuel and accessories also for the 2015 season. I will use Orcan equipment throughout my entire nitro program including ENS, EFRA Euros and Swedish Cup events. I would like to thank SMI Motorsport and Bertram Kessler, as well as Hipex for their support.
German company SMI Motorsport introduce the new RS 9 MH nitro engine for 1/8th on-road cars. Based off the NR9 9-channel World Championships winning engine the RS 9 MH is hand-tuned for maximum performance and it is available in three different specifications for small to medium, small to medium-large and medium-large to large tracks. The latter two also include an Orcan engine bag and engine sack for easy and secure engine storage and transportation.
Xray factory driver Alexander Hagberg has re-signed his contract with Orcan, the German company announces. Alexander will continue to use Orcan’s nitro engines, such as the newly designed .12 RS3-MH, fuel, mufflers and other accessories for this 2014 nitro on-road campaign. The 24 year old Swede is focused on the 200 I.C. World Championship in Bangkok this year and he will also compete at the European Championships and selected races of the Euro Nitro Series ENS as well as local races. This is what Alexander has to say about the deal:
For 2014, being a worlds year for the 200mm IC class, it will be more important than ever to have a good and reliable engine set-up. I will continue with my Orcan deal throughout this season, using engines, mufflers, fuel and accessories from the German brand at all my nitro races. I want to thank Bertram Kessler and SMI for this opportunity, and I am looking forward to EC, WC, ENS and Swedish Cup races together with this sponsor.
