Coming soon from Team Powers is an on-road car stand constructed from carbon fibre and aluminium. The multifunctional item incorporates a ride height gauge, two droop gauge support blocks, droop gauge as well as a 3mm/4mm turnbuckle wrench and camber gauge while four strategically-placed holes in the upper carbon fibre deck take shock absorbers during setup and maintenance as do two holes for gear differentials. The ride height gauge offers an adjustment range of 3.8mm to 7.5mm in 0.2mm increments, the droop gauge support blocks measure 85x10mm, the droop gauge offers a 4mm to 6.5mm range in 0.5mm increments and the camber gauge is pre-set with 1.5 to 3.0 degree settings. The setup stand weighs in at 308g in total and it will hit stores soon.
Team Powers have announced the signing of Germany’s Tobias Seidl to their factory team. While racing at national and international level events, Tobias will also help with the development of future products and he had the following to say:
I would like to thank Andy and everyone at Team Powers to let me join their factory Team for the rest of the 2017 season and beyond. After my first tests this decision was very easy to make as their products perform just awesome on track. I really looking forward to a great future together and hope we can achieve some nice results. My first big race will be the Essex international race in the UK.
Team Powers have introduced their TP-DS1305 low-profile digital servo. Featuring a coreless motor it pulls up to 15kg-cm of torque at a speed of down to 0.05s and thanks to its lightweight construction with titanium metal gears it weighs in at only 42g. The high-voltage compatible servo comes with a black receiver wire for a factory look, a machined middle heatsink section for lower operation temperatures and it will become available very soon.
Coming from Team Powers and made for their line of 540-class modified brushless motors is a new 12.0×5.0x24.0mm sintered rotor. It is a direct replacement for the stock rotor and will make for smoother acceleration in modified motors which can be helpful on fast tracks or lower grip surfaces.
Team Powers have introduced the new Radon Pro V3 brushless speed controller. The all-new ESC is substantially smaller and about ten percent lighter than the Pro V2 controller, it features a 6V/7.4V BEC system and a 180A rating. Softer 12AWG wires, a new internal on/off switch, a black receiver lead and the ability to use 25mm or 30mm cooling fans round out the hardware package. On the software side of things the speedo features 1kHZ to 16kHz throttle and brake frequency selection, it sports an RPM lock function to vary the overall powerband of the motor and a more linear boost and turbo function makes for improved drivability.
Team Powers are busy adding new high-performance LiPo batteries to their line-up with the 7.6V 2S 8300mAh Graphene LiHV pack being the latest offering. Built from 110C cells the high-voltage and high-capacity Lithium-Polymer battery is designed for power-hungry classes such as Touring Modified, Touring Stock and also 1/8th scale racing. The standard-size pack is 24.8mm tall, it weighs in at 330g and utilises 5mm connector tubes.
Team Powers have released first information on their forthcoming M-Radon sensored brushless speed controller and sensored MBX brushless motor. Aimed towards the use in 1/27th mini-size cars, 1/10th motorcycles and other applications, the speed controller makes use of hardware and software ideas taken over from the Radon V2 1/10th speed controller to create a powerful yet widely adjustable ESC that allows for adjustable drive and brake frequencies, power band control and even data recording functions. The controller is adjustable using a simple LED programming card or an optional PC interface and it is usable with 2S LiPo packs and up to 10,000kv brushless motors. As for the motor, the MBX is of a sensored design for improved low-RPM start up without cogging issues, it measures 16x27mm and is available in a 7200kv or 8400kv variant.
Coming from Team Powers is the new 6500mAh 7.6V LiHV battery pack. Offering standard dimensions and a reduced height of 22.5mm, the low centre of gravity pack is built using of high-quality 110C cells that were made using additional Graphene material which is meant to improve performance and durability. The battery weighs in at 272g and it is usable for Modified and Stock class racing alike.
