Just got one of these last week. After around 1L of really slow run-in (mine is a pre run-in model so i don't think it need a lot of run in here, and the engine is nice and smooth after the first L anyway). So I start to lean the LSN to see what this thing can do.... And Holy cow.... with both the LSN and HSN still on the rich side this thing pulls like a train!!!!!!! Think it have way more low end than my IDM evo 4 and the high end is just a bit more than my PTS. But remember this is a new engine with only 1L through it and running at only 80-90 degree!!!! Think I better lean it a bit more to get it to around 100-110......

You know if there are any other changes other than the LSN?

Just talk to the local dist. He said the internal are same. The only different is the carb (shorter LSN). And the engine mounting area. As I fit mine in a MRX5, have some clearance problem with the belt tensioner and the rear drive pulley. So I need to sand down the engine mounting tap slightly. But v1.1 was done at the factory.

I was running a new engine and as we where running it in we found it was difficult to tune then i got some help from one of Australias top drivers and he was also having problems.There was another person at the track who also had the same motor so we applied his screw settings and still the car would lean out apon appling full throttle we where about to give up when I suggested we change the carb from the other guys car then the thing was like a missile faulty carb from factory anyone else had simerlar problem.
PS they where both 1.1 engines.

Hum..... after the first around 2 L fuel my engine kind of stablized and had not touch the carb since.... now had around 5-6 L fuel with mine. Just change the conrod and still have not change the setting.... Maybe it is plug or fuel? what are you running?

I just started the break in process with my new M7T this past weekend. I am trying to get it finished before the Winter Nats in Florida.

When I received the engine I took it totally apart and looked everything over to insure all internal parts were perfect, no burrs or any rust and etc commonly found in some other world renown engines. I was very impressed with the total engine. It is a nice piece and all of the machinery work is clean and looks perfect. New owners of this engine will be very proud of their purchase.

The external looks of the engine is also impressive. At the track the engine turned a lot of heads and questions about the engine showed great interest by other racers.

The sleeve and crank have obviously been worked on and of course the balance between the two is what makes the engines rpm and powerful on the low and high ends.

The first tank of gas proved the normal results. If you follow engines temps as you break in an engine, you will notice that M7T follows the normal patterns. I just can't wait to get to the part where I can start with the race tune!

The M7T early into the break in with rich setting shows a lot of life!!! So I understand what some of you have mentioned in the comments above. I never owned a Mario Rossi race tuned engine so this should be a fun experience.

For those of you that live in the USA you will see Diatta Collymore (factory Driver) with his Reds Racing Engine M3T at the Florida Winter Nationals. Diatta is also my sponsored driver for GQ Racing Tires. Had to get that plug in!!!

In addition to Diatta, Billy Bowerman will be the factory driver for the .21 M7T Reds Racing Engine. Billy's contract is being completed now as I speak and Billy will be able to show the power of this engine to 1:8th on road drivers at the Winter Nats. Billy will also be using the .12 M3T. Another plug coming. Billy is also another of my sponsored drivers for GQ Racing Tires.

Alex, the importer/distributor for Reds Racing Engines-USA, has been making great gains with the Reds engine in the off road competitive field. As we gain more drivers for the on road I am sure these engines will have some amazing results to report in the near future. GQ America (TMA Marketing) is a new dealer for Reds Racing Engines and I will be happy to help interested racers in trying this new engine for their 2012 racing campaign.

Looking forward to 2012 and hoping the weather will be great in Fort Myers for the Nats.

Have Fun!

Hello everyone, I am very excited about 2012 racing season and the opportunity that Alex (owner of REDS Racing Engines) is giving me to use Reds Engine program for 2012.
This is a NEW company and motors built and tuned by Mario Rossi and Family. Alex is going out on a limb with me as a driver that has not won a National Race. Alex and I truly believe that I can help in many other areas to help REDS Racing Engines in REDS Racing program with business, developments and customer service when needed. Our goal is to help make REDS Racing Engines a Power Horse and reliable race engine in the racing world for you racers.

This opportunity will help me personally achieve a higher level of racing. With Alex, REDS Racing, ROSSI family engineers and with Diatta the Factory Team driver, we have a very good staff in place started for 2012. Everyone on the staff is very excited for 2012 and for anybody that going to be running the REDS Racing Engines and products. The Team will be there to help anyone at anytime or at the races we will be attending in 2012..

Fort Myers will be my first time seeing and using the race engines, I am truly excited and ready to go racing and have FUN!!!!!

Thank You

Billy Bowerman
