See: T-Work’s Products

T-Work’s have introduced a new rear bearing intended for use with engines that require a 14×25.4x6mm rear bearing. This rear engine bearing features precision balls allowing the bearing to continue to rotate smoothly even when the crankshaft is subjected to harsh side and radial loads. The bearing provides decreased resistance, increased speed, load handling capabilities and extended bearing life.

See: O.S. Engines

O.S. Engines have introduced two new nitro engines in the form of the Speed B2103 Type S and Speed B2103 Type R. First up is the B2103 Type S engine. This 3-port long-stroke engine offers a high torque at mid-low range with a sweet delivery and low consumption. The crankcase, the crankcase cap and the carburetor feature a new design. The new DLC-coated crankshaft has two tungsten counterweights for smooth rotation and better balancing. The B2103 Type S comes with a low–profile cooling head to provide better drivability and also vertical fins on the top to improve heat dissipation. An O-ring between the cooling head and the combustion camber insert reduces vibrations protect against dirt thanks to a better sealing. The new 22D carburetor guarantees high response and smooth acceleration.

Picco Blast .21 Team DLC Ceramic engine

See: Picco Micromotori

Picco have introduced the new Blast .21 Team DLC Ceramic engine. The Blast features a newly designed crankcase that improves internal gas flow and therefore higher performance at every range of RPM. The 14mm crankshaft with silicone insert is DLC coated in order to prevent wear of the pin and oxidation. The shaft works on a high quality rear ceramic Swiss-Made bearing. The 5 port “cylinder and piston” is made with special alloys to optimize life and reliability of the unit. Paired with the long stroke scheme the Blast provides an improved drivability delivering more torque than previous models. The super aligned “knife edged” aerodynamic connecting rod is also made with a special aluminum alloy. The carburetor sports the latest double bottom-end adjustment for a fine-tuning.

See: Novarossi

Novarossi have introduced the new Mephisto .21 nitro engine. The Mephisto features a 4 ports design to supply a linear power output and to keep fuel consumption low. The new crankshaft with a larger bore intake to increase the mixture flow and has a special shape to optimise gas-flows in the engine and it comes with DLC coating to improve durability. The new R4/18 conrod is redesigned and made with a special aluminum alloy that allows it to have a high resistance while maintaining the lightness and performance of the previous R4/17. The carburettor features three tuning needles giving a better idle and improves the ability of the engine to return to low rpm after throttling. The new head is redesigned to improve the flow of air and thus increase cooling and ensuring an optimal center of gravity. The engine is available with rear high quality ceramic or steel rear balls bearing.
