SMC Totemic competition brushless motors

SMC Totemic competition brushless motors

SMC have introduced the Totemic 2-pole 540-size sensored brushless motor. The motor’s power band has been tuned to provide a very classic brushless feel with a smooth bottom end, hearty mid range and a brutal top end. Available in 9.5T to 5.5T variants, the 9.5T, 8.5T and 7.5T motors are equipped with 12.3mm diameter rotors, which testing proved to be the best suited for 2WD applications. The 6.5T and 5.5T motors are equipped with 12.5mm diameter rotors for 4WD applications where a harder hitting bottom end can be useful. The motor design has the stator wind only displayed on the stator through the side windows, allowing the stators to be changed and easily keep track of the motor wind.
