protek engine

ProTek R/C has joined the nitro race with their all-new 321B “Samurai” Off-Road 3-Port engine! The “Samurai” is ready to lead you into battle – a samurai, by definition, is a noble, powerful warrior willing to serve his master – with a short-stroke, turbo head, rear ceramic bearing and legendary, easy-to-tune carburetor, it’s easy to see why the ProTek racing engine bears the Samurai moniker! The Samurai sips fuel without sacrificing horsepower thanks to elliptical carburetor restrictors that are included. The handcrafted powerhouse has been built meticulously by a world-renown Japanese engine manufacturer, to the specs of A Main’s top pro drivers. The Samurai delivers a versatile package like no other – excellent fuel mileage, predictable, crisp throttle-response and uber-consistent carburetor settings are all traits every racer needs to stand atop the podium – to be crowned the master of his class.
