Team Orion Vortex Ultimate Modified brushless motor

Team Orion have introduced their new Vortex Ultimate Modified brushless motor. Like the Ultimate Stock variant, the modified motor, that won the 4WD Buggy class at last weekend’s Hot Rod Hobbies Shootout in the hands of Xray’s Ty Tessmann, will offer increased performance and efficiency thanks to a low resistance design, a new “Ultimate” sensor construction for accurate timing adjustment and control and precision-balanced rotor manufactured using a new magnetic material. The latter will also improve brake efficiency and feeling while a new stator design and material makes for optimised efficiency and cooler running temperatures. The motor is rounded out by a 4-piece can design and a new angled front plate. The Vortex Ultimate Modified motor is race legal for all major governing bodies and it is available in 4.5T to 8.5T variants with a 6.5T 1/12th scale specific version becoming available also.
