O.S. Speed R21 Euro II engine

O.S. Speed have introduced their updated R21 Euro 1/8th onroad engine with the release of the Euro II. Based on their successful Euro motor released three years ago, the engine sports a host of updates starting with the new crankshaft. To obtain more power the balance of the crankshaft was updated and now sports 3 tungsten counter weights, giving an improvement in the mid range. Another effect of this change is the return to idle has been improved. The liner now has an additional cooling hole on the exhaust side and the crankcase has been updated to cater for this. The last change is only cosmetic as the cooling head now has some updated laser graphics. Available as stand alone engine or as a combo with the TR01 exhaust and MR02 manifold for long straights in Europe.

Following a few iterations on simulation environments and track days for further assessment the new Xtreme Aerodynamics rear wing for 1/8th scale onroad will be soon available on the market. The new wing sees an improved frontal section to provide more downforce with less height, improving driveability and efficiency. Also the edge design has been slightly changed to improve flow on the outside section. Furthermore, different material tests have been carried out to find the best compromise of thickness/stiffness. The new wing can easily replace previous versions as the mounting holes have the same distance apart.
