    It is set to be a full house for the opening round of the 2014/15 Yokomo Euro Touring Series with over 350 entries from drivers around the world set to descend on the SportV-Hotel in the small Czech town of Hrotovice this weekend (5-7 December). Entering its eighth season, the weekend marks a significant milestone in the history of the World famous championship as it will be the 40th running of an ETS race. The fifth time the popular venue has played host to the championship, the race promotes Hrotovice to the most visited and longest serving location on the ETS calendar with the hall having undergone an extension since last year’s encounter creating room to build a larger track than before. Renewing their successful partnership with the championship’s founders Uwe Rheinard and Scotty Ernst, defending champion manufacturer Yokomo will continue as title sponsors for a fifth consecutive season and having won the season opener for the last four years the Japanese company will be hoping to maintain that form this weekend.

    ProTek heats up with new ‘Blue Flame’

    December 4, 2014 - 17:37 by Mike Garrison 0 Comments

    Blue Flame

    AMain.com has released the ProTek R/C ‘Blue Flame’ Engine Heater. ProTek R/C’s ‘Blue Flame’ Engine Heater effectively pre-heats the critical internal parts of your nitro engine, resulting in significantly reduced wear and unnecessary stress when compared to ‘cold starting’. The engine’s crankshaft, connecting rod, piston and sleeve all benefit and will last much longer when pre-heated regularly with the ProTek R/C Blue Flame Engine Heater. An access port atop the Blue Flame allows you to easily start your engine and monitor temperatures while in use; a red LED is always illuminated during the heating process. As a safety measure, a 10-minute timer shuts off the Blue Flame automatically—simply push the power button again for another 10-minute heat period if the engine has not reached its optimum temperature.
