Reds = LM factory, same factory as Sirio, Werks, Orion and Nvision.

All these engines have a 14.2mm crank and a lot of them (but not all) have the 16,2 bore x 16,9 stroke and use the same carb (updated in 2010). Most all these engines work well with the 2013 / 2057 / 2058 pipes. Reds uses a 2083 pipe with special manifold aswell.

Default REDS Racing ZR12T Tuned

HI

Has anyone made some experience with this .12 engine, ZR12T Tuned?
Would you recommend this engine? Which pipe would match best for that engine?
Or is this engine difficult to tune?
Thank you in advance.

BR

Default Reds Racing R5T buggy engine

Reds Racing R5T buggy engine

"During the European 1/8 scale Buggy Championships in Germany, Marco Rossi showed us the latest Reds Racing buggy engine, the R5T. Tuned by M. Rossi, the completely new designed long stroke 5-port motor features a new exhaust port with a booster function for increased acceleration, a new port design for better fuel economy, a new CNC-machined piston and an updated 14mm balanced crankshaft. Other features include ultra-high-quality Swiss ball bearings, a new composite slide carburetor and a cooled combustion chamber. Also new is a lightweight crankcase and cooling head with updated head design for a lower centre of gravity. The R5T will substitute the older XR line and becomes available starting from October 2011."

Picco based for sure (just like the new Reds on road engine)

Looks a lot like the Picco P7-R evo 4 / Boost 5TR

Those are known for being powerfull engines, so a good base for the new Reds

I'm confused I thought LM made REDS? Or are they made by Picco?

Yes looking at the carb it's definitely not LM based. So Picco makes these?

By the looks of it Reds Racing has engines manufactured by both LM and Picco. Interesting.

Picco is definitely highly rated amongst the 1/8th on-road guys here. No tougher place for an engine brand to prove itself than in the constant high revving world of on-road rc racing. A lot of the guys even claim them to be stronger (in terms of durability) to Novarossi.

I will say that Picco's are very durable...they don't seem o have the finest fit and finish, but the materials used are top notch...the cranks are ridiculously hard ...And the piston/sleeve seems to last forever before needing a pinch...tho they can be a little harder on connecting rods....I have had Picco 21's be at 4 gallons and still be able to stick at TDC hard enough to stall my starter box....and at 10 gallons the engine still has insane compression.....But because the engines are soo tight when new they can beat up the connecting rod and sometimes can take as much as 3 gallons to really start performing to full potential...At first when new their performance is nothing too special, but once the engine starts to loosen up they take on a whole new personality....from mild to wild !

Picco makes the new line of Reds engines.

Mario Rossi left LM and went to Picco for his mills. The XR line made by LM will be discontinued and will be replaced by these Picco made mills.
The reason why? Don't know. One speculation i read on the onroad forum which imo is viable: Mario Rossi wanted a race proven platform for his onroad engines which can take the abuse of onroad racing. Picco can deliver that platform.

The funny thing is that I think MEGA by Picco had an off-road engine with "MES" in the old crankcase (Evo2,3). But itīs the same with all the other fancy stuff like weighted cranks, ceramic bearings etc that most other brands use, but then again Picco doesn't seem to need them.

And yes, I have a old Evo2 with close to 4 gallon on it with pinch left, but it eats conrods for breakfast.
