The Sidewinder engine series is based on an engine design from the 1950’s; updated to take advantage of the latest materials, manufacturing techniques, and performance theories.
Many design features have been incorporated to produce a motor that performs well; is reliable and dependable; easy to start, operate, and maintain; and is easy to inspect.
The same powerhead can be easily configured for either 15 or 20 cubic inch versions, assuring the longevity of your initial investment as the racer moves up through the various classes.
The motor is very lightweight at 60 lbs and is one of the best rides you’ll enjoy in any class. It easily starts in the water, idles and runs smoothly throughout the entire rpm range.
This engine series was specifically engineered for the entry level classes while still producing plenty of punch and top speed to keep racers of all ages interested and pumping adrenaline.
In an effort to attract more racers and racer families to the wonderful sport of “kneel-down” racing, Racing Outboards LLC is now producing the first brand new, purpose-built racing engines available in the United States since the early 1980’s.
The Racing Outboards website will become a focal point for all types of equipment used in “kneel-down” racing to make it easier for people new to the sport to find the equipment and accessories they need to get started, or to maintain their current equipment.
