    Exclamation * Caldwell Racing Technology Billet Aluminum Race Engines - High Resolution Images *

    Images are below - please scroll down

    The Aluminum V6 Race Engine Is Reborn!

    There was so much to see at Miami this year, but I know that out of everything, most of you really want to see the Caldwell Racing Technology engines.

    This was the first time I was able to get a close look at these engines and I was just so impressed. The machine work is impeccable, and what is most important is that CRT is continuing to deliver on all counts; a billet aluminum offshore midsection with mount assembly and removable exhaust snout, as well as supporting engine components such as the tuner, diffuser, midsection components, and adapter plate.

    Engine packages are ready for the 2.5-liter Race and Custom Race as well as 3.3, 3.5, and 4.0-liter Big Block models. There is so much happening here, and it's a very exciting time for us outboard performance guys.

    Pro Marine is the exclusive distributor for CRT products, and I'm sure we will have them here to give us more details very soon.

    I was also able to speak at length with Matthew Caldwell, which I will be publishing a feature article based on that interview. I also spent time talking to Pro Marine International Sales Manager Ricky Maldonado, who races his Action. Just very cool.

    Check back later in the week for my full report. I'll also be adding more photos of the CRT products as well as full pricing information.

    Thanks!
    Greg

    I spoke with Mike Caldwell at length as well. He is a really nice guy and seems committed to his project. I had expressed some insight into what needs to be done in order for these motors to make it into the pleasure boat market. There are a lot of larger O/B cat big owners that would be willing to spend some coin if the situation is right.

    Thank you Mark, it was my pleasure and I really enjoyed discussing this incredible series of products with Matthew. I think CRT has most members here really excited. The V6 race engine is reborn now, and I'm so happy to see CRT really pushing forward and making this a reality.

    The trickle-down technology will eventually make engines like these available to more and more people. The engines are just stellar.

    Hopefully these beautiful motors will wipe away all this nonsense about people putting heavy disgusting four strokers on their race boats. Let's get back to two stroking people!!! They're light and they're fast

    I won't lie; I like the 400R and the technology behind it is most impressive. That engine has its ideal purpose, but very clearly not for the smaller, fast boats that most of us are interested in.

    Sooner or later, used Mercury, OMC, and Yamaha engines will become more scarce, and prices will likely go up on good units. I see the CRT engines as another counterweight to those concerns for race applications. While this is only the beginning, we can at last say there will be options for us in the future.

    The two-stroke, screaming-RPM race engine is not dead at all.

    Not to mention the OEM only parts for them. That being said, who wants to start making electronics and crankshafts LOL

    CRT will be producing a full line of Cranks, Pistons, Rods thru Pro Marine and currently Pro Marine carries electronics for the 2.5. So Pro Marine will have everything in house. Also CRT will be producing a Gear Case for the CR 650 and above to handle the HP.
