THE NEW 70cc RCMAX"

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" .

Im really excited about the 40cc in the losi. If this engine is priced nicely this could be the best option available.

The 40cc will be a "Sayyaaf special edition"
For his love of high revving screamers, I've had over 20k rpm on my tester.

Yeah im sure Chris could make a pipe to suit the B's, However the use of the TC cage protects the engine.

Chris, your motors look unbalievable man. 20k rpm's out of a 40 sounds insain! I would really like to see a size and weight comparison with a stock 26 and also some dyno numbers. Keep up the great work, this is very exciting stuff!

The 70 is looking to be around 18hp and 8ftlb of torque.

That very engine will be with me tomorrow
