Posted 07 February 2012 - 08:07 PM

Innovation and introduction of new motors and parts in 2011 was strong.
The horsepower race to name a couple has seen OBR introduce their twin followed by MMR throwing their BZM 50's into the ring.

2012 has already started with a bang, with 2 guys producing this new 70cc motor .

The 2 gentlemen behind this creation are Ray and Chris Dawson and their new company is called "RC MAX".

Ray's engine history started in 1968 and he has been building engines and transmissions of all sorts to date.
From Lister engines to HONDA F1
He graduated from University in 1973 with a first class honours degree in Mechanical Engineering.

For 10 years Ray had been managing the HONDA F1 engine building facility based in Bracknell, UK until Honda decided to pull out from F1.

His talents has also seen him work with BORG WARNER marine, automatic transmissions , 4 wheel drive systems and managing the manufacturer of hydraulic steer transmissions for the British Army Challenger Tank.

Rays passion for motorsport lead him to build engines and bikes for Minimoto Racing together with Chris.

MMR's 40 and 50cc were designed , developed and built by Ray and Chris.

For various reasons that experience has motivated them both to develop their own product line of motors which will be better than the original.
Most likely more models and applications will follow.

This is now their passion and will soon become their business.

We are nailing down prices atm, i'm seeing all our supliers next week so we can give a final price.
Cost is looking to be around £1280 complete with clutch, drum, enclosed billet drum holder, pipe, carb, billet pullstart and ignition.

No a bad price considering what you get

is that a polini top end?

polini have managed to get 33bhp out of their 94cc aerox kits for scooters tuned right a 70 kit will push a moped to 60+ popping wheelies as it goes! this could be monster lol

Kris, you can make out in the pics it's a polini top end :)
The only problem i can see with this is killing diffs etc. although most runners will be on the dunes with lockers i guess.

I would be supprised if your could get a well maintained baja ss diff to break for one key reason. The tyres, even the best tyres will spin before the diff gives in, whitch is kind of handy when baja diffs cost £50 ea!

I think this engine has more than 18hp to give!

Think his 40cc will be better seller than these and is good that the blackbone gears fit it aswell... I would say this will take over from the bzm 50 aswell be cheaper as mmr not selling it with there crazy mark up...

these big engines always have me in 2 minds about them.

on the one hand, they are rather impractical, expensive, and not much good for anyone who doesnt run on sand

on the other, its brilliant being able to have a remote control 'toy' car, with a bigger engine than a chavped/hair dryer

at the moment, it is the latter that is ruling my judgement, so thats awesome, just plain awesome.
