Team Orion Vortex VST2 Pro LW lightweight motors

Team Orion soon have special lightweight versions of their Vortex VST2 Pro electric brushless motors available. It is understood that they offer the same specifications as the regular weight variants but the heavily machined cases scrub around 15g of weight. Especially the front part sports new milled out sections that not only reduce weight but help with cooling. The LW motors are available in a range of windings including modified 3.5T, 4.0T and 4.5T variants as well as 10.5T, 13.5T and 17.5T stock motors.

Wild Turbo Fan Mad Max 3D fan mount

Wild Turbo Fan Mad Max 3D fan mount

New from Wild Turbo Fan and Mad Max Products comes the Mad Max 3D fan mount. Different from conventional fan mounts with only a small contact area, the unique 3D design allows a much stronger connection to the motor using a custom made carbon fibre cross brace and an aluminium stopper. This fan mount is usable with 30mm to 40mm fans including WTF’s Windy fan and will fit the Awesomatix touring car and most belt driven cars. The design allows to take of the fan using only one screw after initial assembly and the mount is of a very low weight at only 5.8g. Included with the mount comes all needed hardware as well as two different carbon mounting brackets.

Yokomo YZ-PS25A 25 Amp power supply

Yokomo YZ-PS25A 25 Amp power supply

Yokomo introduce the YZ-PS25A power supply for the use with 100 to 240VAC input. The device offers 12VDC and a maximum of 25A of output current, enough even for very powerful charger and tyre truers. An LC display informs about the current voltage, wattage and temperature while a separate 5V/1A USB port allows you to power your mobile devices. Due to the design of the power supply it can be directly mated with Yokomo’s YZ-110Duo charger with the help of two dual bullet-type connectors, limiting the amount of wires on your pit table for a clean and sleek look. Both the power supply and charger are also available as a combo set from mid-July.

Hacker Tensoric8.2 speed controller

Hacker Tensoric8.2 speed controller

Available now from German company Hacker is their latest 1/8th brushless speed controller, the Tensoric8.2. Designed for the use with 2S to 6S LiXX cells, the speedo builds on the experience gained with the Tensoric8 and it features a completely redesigned and more powerful PCB power control board, a newly designed heatsink and a switched high voltage BEC system that allows to choose between 6V or 7.4V output for the use with standard or high-voltage compatible servos. All that is housed in a new fibre-reinforced case with lower aluminium heatsink. Mounting holes in the lower case make it possible to mount the speedo to the chassis or radio tray, doing away with the need to use double-sided tape which results in improved reliability. From stock the ESC comes with a software profile optimised for Hacker Skalar8 brushless motors but with the use of the optional Progbox V1 or V2 the controller can also be adapted to any other brushless motor while allowing to fine-tune the countless software parameters as well.
