If you’ve read our reviews of the short stroke ProTek Samurai engine (here: Protek Samurai Review) and the current IFMAR World Champion OS B2101 buggy engine (here: OS B2101 Review), you probably know how I feel about the 2090 pipe design.  Manufactured by OS Engines as an OS-branded product, this pipe is now also available from ProTek (a division of A-Main) as the PTK-2090.  Priced at $169.99, the pipe set includes a long 2090 manifold, springs, two gaskets and a mounting setscrew.

TESTED: ProTek Electronic Switch



Continuing with the ProTek testing bonanza, today we have an item that’s easy to overlook but vital to a nitro vehicle’s longevity. Mechanical on/off switches, like anything mechanical, can break…often at the worst time, like when your 1/8 truggy has just hit mach-7 at the end of a long straightaway.

TESTED: ProTek Blue Flame Engine Heater



With nitro season quickly approaching, many racers have several months of freezing their rear ends off still to endure. And once it warms up, you’ll need to break-in an engine or two. You have a choice: coddle your nitro engine and pre-heat its internal parts before starting, or cold crank it, start it and rev it to the moon while it’s still frozen. Don’t be that guy. Nitro engine head heaters, essentially tiny versions of F1 tire warmers, came onto the scene several years ago, and they’ve changed the way people start and break-in their engines.

TESTED: ProTek R/C Pit Mat


There probably isn’t much I can tell you about the ProTek Pit Mat (#PTK-8151) that will wow you, particularly regarding my “testing.”  I unrolled it and placed lots of stuff on top of it. I cleaned it off several times, and it didn’t disintegrate or burst into flames. It measures 120x60cm (translated to US units, that’s 4ft long by 2ft wide), so it’s big enough to cushion all of your pit gear.  It’s blue, with ProTek’s sleek logo printed onto the lower right corner. And it’s made of textured, padded foam, so screws and locknuts don’t fire off into oblivion when they’re dropped on your wrenching surface. The ProTek mat is very, well…pit matty.
