Fenix have introduced two new brushless motors out of their DFV2 range with the 5.5T and 8.5T modified windings complementing the already existing variants. Built to meet EFRA, ROAR and IFMAR specifications the motors feature balanced 12.5mm high-torque rotors, premium-grade Neodymium magnets, Kawasaki steel stator plates and 99.9 percent pure Copper windings. All this is housed in CNC-machined cans that feature heatsinks and endplate venting for maximum cooling. Both windings variants are available now.
Trinity have introduced the 21.5T Equalizer tamper-proof spec racing brushless motor. Already available as 17.5T variant the motor features purple paint on the front taps and collector and it is built using an easily identifiable rotor meaning manipulations are easy to recognise. Beside the 21.5T and 17.5T windings the Equalizer motor will also become available as 13.5T variant.
Coming from Muchmore is the new Impact LCG Max-Punch FD2 6000mAh LiPo battery pack. Developed with blinky and boosted stock racing in mind, the battery is made using high-quality 120C cells that offer a super-low internal resistance and a flat discharge curve which leads to an overall increased performance even till the end of the run. The battery weighs in at 285g, it is of standard dimensions and only 22.3mm tall for a low centre of gravity.
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 Associated and made for the F6 formula car is the XP F6 red LED tail light kit. A direct fit on the car’s rear win, the light kit will add some scale realism to Team Associated’s first formula car kit. The set includes a plug-and-play LED light and mounting zip-ties and it is also usable on all other formula kits that make use of the AE-style rear wing.
Castle Creations have introduced their new 1406 short can sensored brushless crawler motors. Designed with scalers, trail trucks and Ultra 4 racing in mind, the new “slate” colour motors offer high peak power and exceptional low-RPM startup control. Combined with any of Castle Creation’s X series speed controllers these motors will enable drivers to fine tune and set the controllability of their ride to the maximum, or even use the aux wire to toggle between drag brake settings for example. The 4-pole motors come pre-wired and in the four windings options of 1900kv, 2280kv, 2850kv and 3800kv.
HRC Racing have introduced their new line of 540-size brushed motors for hobby applications. The dual ball-raced and fully rebuildable motors are available in four different windings, including “modified” 13T, “stock” 17T and 19T as well as 60T crawler variants. The motors come pre-wired and they will hit stores in May.
LRP have introduced the WorksTeam 41mm aluminium fan mount. Suitable for most 1/8th scale brushless motors, the clamping design mount is machined from high-quality aluminium and it comes blue anodised and with engraved LRP logos. The lightweight yet durable design allows to mount two 40mm fan units in order to optimise motor cooling for improved overall performance and longer motor life.
