The new Reds Racing RTX Rotary Backplate is an engineering masterpiece that will revolutionize the world of RC Model Nitro Engines. Developed by Marco and Mario Rossi in collaboration with the best RC drivers in the world, the backplate aims to increase engine power and improve stability at idle speed thanks to a drastic reduction in friction between the connecting rod and backplate.

Rotary Backplate
Reds Racing was one of the first companies in the world to work on reducing the friction between the backplate connecting rod with the introduction of DLC coating on the backplate. This time Reds Racing engineers have invented something unique in rc model market, destined to be considered one of the most innovative solutions of the last 30 years.

Contrary to what happens for traditional RC engines, where the connecting rod slides on the backplate producing sliding friction, in the RTX Backplate the connecting rod is in contact with a special steel plate that can rotate together with the conrod thanks to the fact that it is mounted on two special high speeds ball bearings.
