This is the Novarossi KEEP OFF .21-7XL 7-Port .21 Competition Off Road Engine. The KEEP OFF includes all the tricks and tweaks that Novarossi has developed for their off-road engines, most notably a unique and patented bearing design that reduces the inertia of the rotating mass and increases the engines scavenging, delivering increased throttle response and higher top speed. This, combined with a unique crankshaft, and a patented 7-port sleeve deliver maximum performance. Additionally, the Evolution 2 cooling head was chosen to keep the cooling head mass as low as possible, and the re-designed exhaust gasket helps to increase the life of the gasket.

Features:

  • Cooling Head: The 'Lighter & Lower Evolution 2' cooling head has been drilled and milled out to reduce the mass of the cooling head, lowering the Center of Gravity of the engine/car.         
  • Sleeve: The sleeve has 7 transfer ports, and an exhaust with booster ports. The patented port shape and positioning improves the internal fluid dynamics to deliver maximum performance.
  • Crankshaft: The crankshaft has a special shape to reduce turbulence in the crankcase, while the front part was extended to improve the seal and prevent leaking.
  • Gasket: The inner shape of the gasket has been redesigned to allow the use of more material and when combined with an updated material is more resistant to high temperatures.
  • Conrod: The R7 conrod is machined from a super light aluminum that has been checked ultrasonically. The unique shape of the R7 rod creates less turbulence inside the engine.
  • Backplate: The shape of the rear cover helps to optimize the crankcase filling and reduces dead space. The steel plate helps to reduce friction and increases the life of the rod.
  • Carburetor: The carburetor of this engine is made from plastic and in "reverse" style, with a sliding throttle valve. The updated three tuning needles gives a better idle and improves the ability of the engine to return to low rpm after throttling.
  • Rear Ball Bearing: The ceramic rear ball bearing reduces the inertia of the rotating mass and increases the engine's scavenging ability. The bearing, combined with the re-designed case provide increased throttle response and higher top speeds.
