RB’s 2014 ‘BXR’ engine line up

EUR_5836

In addition to fresh tyres & a new fuel, RB Products’ team boss Eric Aita gave us a glimpse at the 2014 ‘BXR engine’ competition range – still called ‘BXR’ but now featuring a total of four different versions of the BXR, sharing the same cooling head, but distinguishable via their crankcase engraving. One of the neat new details is engine’s right side mount, slightly filed down to make life a bit easier for installation close to center driveshafts.

First up is the 5 port longstroke BXR engine featuring 14.5mm crankshaft technology, known as the all rounder engine that’ll pretty much work anywhere. Next is the Super longstroke (SLS) 3 port engine which has the awesome low end torque that a 3port delivers, ideal for tracks which are tight & twisty. Next is the Super long stroke 5 port which shares the same philosophy as the 3 port super longstroke engine but offers a higher top speed and improved power in the medium to top end. Last of all is the Super longstroke Direct Intake 5 port, the big daddy of them all, this engine is suited for huge tracks with high grip and difficult hot conditions – an example being Pattaya. Designed and built to cope with the most brutal unforgiving conditions along with the ideal engine for truggy.

Stay tuned next week for the full presentation of the 2014 RB BXR range.

RB ‘Snatch’ & Ultra soft tyres

EUR_5807

Whilst at Montpellier RB Products were keen to show off some of their new products, of which they were most pleased with was their new ‘Ultra soft’ tyre compound – ideally suited for the cold conditions of indoor or winter racing where ‘super soft’ simply doesn’t quite cut it!

We were pleased to handle the new compound and impressed with it’s sticky qualities and ‘Play Doh’-likeness (see below), and after playing with that for a while we moved on to the new tyre tread that RB announced just before the event, the somewhat suggestively innuendo-named ‘Snatch’ – a small pin tyre with great forward bite and profile to maintain maximum corner speed & grip.
