Revmaster’s Breakthrough R-2300 Engine Offers More Horsepower, Lower Cruise RPM at the incredible low price of $8,825.00
Revmaster Aviation has finished development of its latest upgraded engine, and the results are in: more horsepower at any usable rpm. The new Revmaster R-2300 (2331cc, 142.2 cu.in.) engine maintains Revmaster’s famous proprietary systems and parts, including its RM-049 heads that feature large fins and a hemispherical combustion chamber; and it maintains the earlier R-2200’s engine’s top horsepower (82) at 2950rpm continuous. (Takeoff power is rated at 85, at 3350rpm.) The additional power ultimately comes from a bore of 94mm plus lengthening of the R-2200’s connecting rods, plus increasing the stroke from 78 to 84mm, but that is oversimplifying things. “We have put a lot of energy into this redesign,” says Joe Horvath, President and founder of Revmaster. “On paper it looks like just a few minor modifications, but we’re really closer to a complete rework of the internals: crank specification, rods, pistons, and cylinders are all new.” The longer stroke results in more displacement and longer connecting rods yield better vibration and power characteristics; the lower cruise rpm allows the use of longer propellers – and the higher peak horsepower can be felt in shorter takeoffs and steeper climbs. Strength and reliability are ensured by Revmaster’s 4-main-bearing crankshaft that runs on a huge 60mm center main bearing and is forged from 4340 steel, with nitrided journals. Thrust is handled by the 55mm #3 bearing at the propeller end of the crank. Fully utilizing its robust #4 main bearing, the Revmaster crank has built in oil-controlled propeller capability, a feature unique in this horsepower range; non-wood props are usable with these engines. The direct-drive R-2300 retains Revmaster’s famous dual CDI ignition with 8-coil spark to 8 spark plugs, dual 20-amp alternators, oil cooler, and its proprietary Rev-Flo carburetor, while introducing the longer cylinders that do not require spacers. The automotive-based bearings, valves, valve springs, and piston rings (among others) make rebuilds easy and inexpensive, even as the Revmaster-engineered components have heavy-duty longevity built in. First deliveries have already begun; full production is underway. Pricing for a complete, test-run Revmaster R-2300, complete with geared starter, dual ignition and twin alternators is $8,825.00, FOB Hesperia, California (92345).
