Coming from Trinity is the new Monster Max brushless stock motor. Building on the proven Monster Horsepower motor the Monster Max features the TEP1112 high-torque rotor, a newly designed low-resistance stator, it has the red insulators removed for lower resistance and increased airflow and black thermal epoxy makes for better heat dissipation which leads to a lot less fading of the motor over the run. The ROAR approved power plant is available in 13.5T, 17.5T and 21.5T variants.
Coming from Reds Racing is the new VX540 17.5T high torque electric brushless motor. Complementing the already existing 13.5T and 21.5T high torque variants, the motor offers a precision-machined 6061-T6 high airflow can, a balanced sintered rotor as well as low resistance solder tabs. The specially tuned motor will offer increased low-RPM torque while maintaining unchanged top speed, making it ideal for tracks that requires both lots of bottom end power and speed.
LRP have released first information on their forthcoming X22 electric brushless motors. Follow-up model of the successful X20 series, that has won three World Championships, multiple European and National as well as ETS and EOS titles, the motors will sport an updated, ultra-lightweight and precision machined 7075-T6 aluminium housing with maximised cut-outs and additional openings on the flat parts to further increase the cooling surface and lower the running temperatures due to improved airflow even at maximum loads. The most noticeable change has been made at the surface of the housing. The X22 comes with the “dark shine black” anodising with X22 engraving that will make it stand out in every chassis.
Yokomo have unveiled new optional Racing Performer series rotors for the M3 and D1 electric brushless motors. Available are both 7.25mm RPM and 5.0mm higher torque variants of different diameters to further fine-tune the motor characteristics. Moreover the D1-specific rotors use a different magnet material to extract even more RPM from the motor. All rotors come with marked shafts for easy recognition.
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.
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.
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.
