Everyone on the staff is very excited for 2012 and for anybody that going to 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!!!!!

I look forward to working with Billy and Diatta for 2012. I will also mention we are just getting up and running with the Team and we have several on-road sponsorship spots available for the 2012 in both 1/8 and 1/10. If you are interested please visit the REDS site for team information.

I hoping when I get back from Florida in 4 weeks I will get RED Racing products in the store guys. I will get more info in the up coming weeks.

Our Nitro racing hopimg to start in about 6 weeks or so, if it doesn't start raining late.

After Winter Nats I will give you guys some info about the engines and if anyone has any questions that's going to the race, just come up and ask at any time.

Billy

I received my REDS HP engines for Fort Myers race. Start breaking them in today or tomorrow. These engines sure have really nice craftsmanship. I can't wait for the race, alot of great competition from the USA and other countries going to the Winter Nats. Also a great run program by the Jim Rice and crew.

Default REDS M7T

Just thought I would let you guys know we ran these engines at the recent Vic State Titles for our sponsor, Walters RC who are the Australian importer.

All I can say is what BULLETS. These engines are sick. Easy to run in, easy to tune, and as powerful as anything around. They are different to Novas, they need to be geared slightly different and need to be run cooler as well. I recomend you don't take them over 110deg Celcius. They will take more but you may find signs of detonation as a result. For run in and the first hour or so track time I highly recommend you use an extra .1 shim under the combustion chamber. Use a #7 plug unless you are running in snow, then maybe a #6 would be OK.

The pipes available (2033 & 2069) tune way differently so be prepared to experiment for your track. We had massive clutch troubles until we finally figured out that the clutch nut was unscrewing itself all the time.

These engines are built superbly and when you get the gearing/clutch and pipe combo correct all I can say is "HANG ON".

Which pipe did you end up running mate? 2069?

Default M7T Pipe

Hey Dan, We ran both, The 2069 seems to give more aggressive overall power, especially down low, whilst the 2033 is smoother everywhere, but pulls so hard.

Now we have FINALLY got the clutch sorted we will need to do more testing to confirm the above results. When changing pipes we noticed we had to change the HSN more than a quarter of a turn in.

On one run I had the poor thing at 125Deg Celcius. These engines will just keep giving and giving. Ryan's Serpent was Monoing onto the front strait. Top speed down the back strait was... PHENOMONAL. Ryan had a grin from ear to ear. However it blew a plug after a few minutes and on pulldown I noticed pitting on the top of the piston and Head button. ( Hence my comment not to go past 110 Deg and or run an extra shim) The engine still flies at this temp.

Default Reds Racing Engines Team Manager

Hi Warren Maker, what a great and exciting post you have written.

I have accepted the role for Alex as USA Team Manager for On Road. To hear these engines are bullets from you made me want to fly to Florida today and get my car on the track!!!!

Having Billy Bowerman and Diatta Collymore on our team will give us great feedback when we go to our first race next week at the Florida Winter Nats. Both men are not only fast but can give excellent information to me and Alex that we can pass along to our new team members.

Warren Maker your feedback and information is really great to hear and I and other Reds racers look forward to hearing more from you about your experiences with the Reds Engines. This will be very helpful.

For USA racers interested in becoming sponsored by Reds Racing Engines please email your racing resume to me at [email protected]

I will mention the sponsorship package is well worth the attention of fast racers that wish to step up their racing program for 2012. Hope to hear from you guys soon!!!
