REDS R7 Evoke is hand-tuned by Mario Rossi. Before leaving the factory the engine is hand inspected and compression checked by Mario Rossi for maximized performance.
Cody King has this to say about the engine: I always look for an engine that not only has power but drivability. The R7 Evoke has the smoothest power delivery I have experienced in any engine, along with the power when I need it. Drivable power equals smaller lap times. Now with the HCX carburetor, it’s smooth power along with the most consistent tune possible.
