Coming from Wild Turbo Fan is the version 2 BTA speed controller fan mount. Offering a revised fan angle and new carbon fibre guides the mount now channels the cooling air better towards the controller’s heat sink and the motor. The mount fits both 25mm and 30mm ESC mounting patterns and the whole assembly weighs in at only 2.7g without fan.
Scorpion have introduced their new Vanguard S3-80 Turbo Stock brushless speed controller. Building on the S3-140 Modify and S3-80 Super Stock ESCs the new Turbo Stock was especially developed for demanding Stock class racing with 8.5T to 25.5T motors and it offers a wide range of timing and turbo adjustments to make it usable for competitive boosted class racing. The controller is built using military-spec components, it utilises an aluminium heatsink case and features a 6V/3A BEC system, multiple protection features and it is usable with both sensored and sensorless motors. The V-Link cable for easy setup using a PC and a high-speed cooling fan are available optionally.
Trinity have introduced the Motolyser DC 1S booster for all 1S LiPo battery classes. Super small and of a low weight the voltage booster allows to run 1S LiPo-powered 1/12th and 1/10th scale cars without the need for an additional, and heavy, receiver battery pack. The booster features an on/off switch that is mounted right on the PCB for improved durability and reliability and it was used by TQ Marc Rheinard and new IFMAR World Champion, Naoto Matsukura, among others, during this week’s Electric On-road World Championships.
Japanese company Pro-Spec have introduced their new brushless speed controller, developed in cooperation with ORCA. Currently still in prototype stages, also sporting the original ORCA case, the internals are redesigned to offer a smoother power band without sacrificing punch when needed. Also the brake software was renewed, again to smooth out the reactions on brake input but like the throttle characteristics the brake output can be sharpened when conditions call for it. The final ESC may come with an updated case design and we bring you more information on the project once they become available.
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.
Ruddog Distribution have introduced a new all-black 60mm wire for the recently introduced RP120 brushless speed controller. The all-black appearance helps to create a stealthy “factory” look many drivers are after while the shorter-than-standard 60mm specification makes wiring a more tidy affair especially in touring cars and buggies. The wire comes with a universal receiver-side plug, it fits the Ruddog RP120 ESC and also select other brand speed controllers.
Ruddog Distribution have introduced their all-new RP120 sensored brushless speed controller for 1/10th scale applications. Rated at 120A and sporting an aluminium case the ESC is designed with both on-road and off-road racing in mind. The integrated heavy-duty switch minimises wiring and several timing and turbo functions, programmable using an optional programming box, give extra performance for boosted racing classes. The controller comes including a replaceable receiver wire, capacitor board and all-black power wires.
Available now from Team Corally are the new Cerix Pro brushless speed controllers for 1/10th and 1/12th scale applications. First up is the Cerix Pro 160 Racing Factory, a top-of-the-foodchaing ESC with 160A rating, adjustable 6V or 7.4V BEC system, all-alloy case and built-in capacitor unit. Designed with competition on-road and off-road racing in mind the controller offers advanced turbo and timing functions and it is usable with motors down to 3.5T.
