The Engine & Transmission
A thoroughbred circuit racer, and with its 3.5cc nitro motor, it
has enough power to challenge any competitor. It has a powerful
Kyosho GX21 engine, which delivers 1.8 horsepower at the crank.
The centrepiece of the Red Bull Racing RB7 model - its
race-proven chassis - provides numerous adjustments so that the
performance of the car can be precisely matched to a specific track
or the personal preferences of the driver.
The car has four hydraulic dampers - and, in a similar way to a
full-size Formula 1 car, the front ones are installed horizontally,
operating via pushrods that link them to the suspension
The 1:7-scale Red Bull Racing RB7 racer is an impressive 689 x
250 x 150mm with its bodywork fitted.
The Remote Control System
Your model Red Bull Racing RB7 is designed to work with a Kyosho
Syncro digital remote system. This has a handset that sends out
signal pulses to operate the model's steering, throttle and brake,
transmitting through an integrated antenna.
The radio signals from the remote control handset are picked up
by an RC receiver unit located in the radio box on the chassis of
you Red Bull Racing RB7 racing car, on the left of the engine. The
receiver unit converts the radio signals into electrical pulses and
passes them on to the car's control servos, which operate the
throttle, brake and steering.
