Team Powers have introduced the Actinium V2 brushless motors. The version 2 features a redesigned stator with lower resistance and improved power efficiency, which reduces the motor’s running temperature. The new case design incorporates an air flow convection system to keep motor temperatures down by 10 to 15 degrees. On top of this the new neodymium rotors produce a stronger magnetic field than the previous Actinium, by almost 10 percent, and they fade less at the end of a run for more power in the decisive moments of a main. The motor is rounded out by a new endbell design that has a greater range of timing, this gives the racer the ability to tailor the motor to his gearing and also changing track conditions. The V2 will become available in a range of modified and stock windings very soon.
Coming from Team Powers are two heavy duty power capacitor boards for 1S and 2S applications. Designed to improve initial motor punch and reduce motor fading over the course of a run, the capacitor boards are ideal for Stock and 1/12th scale racing. The 2S board utilises three capacitors while the 1S unit is of a smaller two-cap design with both featuring sturdy and easy-to-mount aluminium cases and heavy duty solder tabs. Both boards are made for the use in place for the speed controller’s stock capacitors and they are available soon.
Team Powers have introduced their forthcoming 6400mAh 7.4V LiPo battery pack. Aimed at Stock class racing the battery is made from high-performance 100C and it utilizes a protective hardcase equipped with “through-type” 5mm bullet-type connectors and a 2mm balancer port. The battery pack is hitting the stores soon.
Coming soon from Team Powers is the Radon Sport V2 brushless speed controller. The upgraded V2 comes with several hardware and software improvements to boost performance and reliability. Starting with the hardware upgrades the V2 sports swapped A and C motor wires for easier wiring, the alloy case features a newly designed heatsink that allows to mount the new 30mm fan flat or at a 30 degree angle and both the receiver connection and programming wire have been relocated to avoid unwanted removal. As for the software changes the speedo offers a single modified and stock program, simplified boost and turbo settings as well as improved brake adjustment and smoother throttle control. The new firmware also addresses reliability issues when running boosted stock motors with high timing settings and the improved software also keeps the ESC running at lower temperatures.
Team Powers have introduced their new line of LiPo Batteries for 2012. The range includes a 7.4V 6800mAH 70C stick pack, a 7.4V 4400mAH 60C Shorty (94mm long) pack, a 3.7V 6400mAH 70C 1S pack and finally a 7.4V 5400mAH 35C saddle pack. All LiPos feature a hard case and gold plug connectors. Finally they have also released their Mighty Gripper V2 tire additive, which they claim was the best kept secret from TITC 2011.
Team-Powers have released information on the updated V1.1 version of their XPS Speed Control. A pretty standard affair, the unit will support all kinds of sensor/sensorless brushless 540 type motors and its XPS Pro and Sport has Turbo mode function that can support modified and stock mode motors directly. To make it easy for users to adapt the settings to all different track sizes and conditions, it comes supplied with an LCD setting card that allows you to adjust the throttle/brake profile parameters directly. For the throttle profile, it can adjust the power band, punch, timing and turbo boost parameter to control the power delivery to the motor. In order to make the ESC lighter, the lower casing will change to plastic but will keep the aluminium casing on the upper side to disperse heat.
Team Powers have introduced their Pro TC 36R tire designed specifically for electric touring cars on asphalt tracks. Offering a high level of grip, the tire use a long life rubber and comes supplied pre glued on Team Powers white disc wheels.
Team-Powers have released a new update of their high downforce aluminium body supports, suitable for all touring cars. They are designed to help increase rear traction and are best suited to low or normal traction conditions. In stock competition they can allow the use of less rear toe-in to increase top-end speed. Sold in a pair they are available in Tamiya blue and black colours.
