WASP REV

For the first time a nitro engine has been re-designed for ideal flux movement using today's most advanced technology.


Features include:

- Integrated Compressor Crankshaft (Patent Pending)
- Typhoon Mixture Distribution (Patent Pending)
- Internal Mixture Centrifugal Power Pump (Patent Pending)
- No back plate back effect resonance (Patent Pending)
- Automatic Cylinder Conicity Adjustment (Patent Pending)
- Crankcase Side Intake Tunnel (Patent Pending)
- Lower fuel consumption by optimisation of the mixture management
- Large heatsink for lower operating temperature
- Ultra precise high quality ball bearings
- Special carburetor with very fine tuning capability
- Turbo plug

-- Sounds very interesting, good find. So it sounds like a newly designed nitro motor.

Hey guys.
what is this santence meaning-- Automatic Cylinder Conicity Adjustment?
Is it meaning that taper on sleeve and/or piston will be changed during the motor is running?

"maybe they'll waste all this technology on another monster truck engine."

Lol, I sure hope not, but they're gonna go where the money is... I don't think something like this would become a monster truck motor, because fuel econmoy isn't an issue. In fact, I dare say they'd rather build very poorly efficient motors for bashers, so they can sell them more fuel. But getting back to the point, this seems like it would be a racer's upgrade. Less fuel means smaller, lighter tanks, or fewer pit stops. I bet the pricing will keep most bashers away from it. The diference between an aiplane motor with and with out a pump, is $70-$80...really not sure what kind of premium you could expect to pay for all that inovation.
