THE NEW 70cc RCMAX"
« on: January 21, 2012, 08:01:47 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.

Everyone  is going to love this pic.

Any questions  can be directed to Chris as he will be saying a "Hello" shortly  :hi:

Nice very nice, this kind of thing should lower price on motors out there (witch is a bit ridiculous for a little motor for what you could get a real car motor that does alot more and last a hell of a lot longer then most) should nock a few off there high horses aswell.Keep up the good work and try and make it fair price wise for all to have and run one of these beasts.


whats to go with the clutch shoes? they look like there metal on metal.
BAJA and ROTORS the only way

The price is not totally fixed yet, we are working on suppliers all the time, it is a fair bit cheaper than a tuned 50 though.
The clutch is metal on metal, gives much better durability comparred to whats currently available, it is now up to tony to test and abuse it so we can get some results back.

Guys remember that the in the pics has done many tanks with big gears already. The stick clutch would have been toast.

I would like to thank Greg and Chris. Especially Chris for giving me the chance to do some real world testing before releasing this engine.

Oh yeah. I'm betting you're about as happy as a Pig in shit ATM Tony. You spend big $$ on the hobby so I think you're a good choice as a tester.
