RC Pro Style 1/8th electric motor fan mount

Coming from RC Pro Style and made for most 1/8th scale electric brushless motors is a clamping design aluminium fan mount. The construction allows to attach two 40mm fan units which will greatly improve motor cooling and thus overall performance especially during longer mains or when running in high ambient temperatures. The fan mount is machined from high-quality aluminium, it comes black anodised and with an engraved RC Pro Style logo.

Reedy 540-M3 12x5x24.2 modified rotor

Team Associated have introduced the new 540-M3 12.0×5.0x24.2 Mod Rotor, Reedy’s latest tuning rotor designed for modified on- and off-road racers. Using the rotor will smooth out the low-end throttle inputs while maintaining strong mid-range power and top speeds. When competing on small and/or low-grip tracks the reduction in initial power delivery will help to provide more consistent lap times.

Muchmore Fleta ZX V2 Type-ER brushless motor

Following the introduction of the Fleta ZX V2 Modified and Fleta ZX V2 Sting Stock outlaw brushless motors Muchmore now also released information on the IFMAR, ROAR and EFRA legal Type-ER motor. It makes use of the same Flow-Max 2 aluminium can that improves cooling efficiency by about 15 percent compared to Muchmore’s former motors while the new high-power stator design, without separate insulator, further increases cooling while also lowering the weight at the same time. Other features include super low resistance copper windings, heavy-duty silver-plated solder tabs and a precision-balanced Neodymium high-temperature rotor. The ER Spec stock motor is available in 10.5T to 25.5T winding variants.

Tekin ROC412 HD Element Proof 550-class motor

Tekin have introduced their new ROC412 HD Element Proof 550-class electric brushless motor. Designed for crawler and trail rigs the 4-pole/12-slot motor makes use of a machined 6061-T6 billet aluminium heatsink can and it comes with an 18.5mm rotor and Neodymium sintered magnets for strong braking power and torque. The motor is highly resistant to water, mud and snow, allowing the use even in unreal track conditions and its sensored design ensures smooth and reliable power output. The features list is rounded out by ABEC5 bearings and a high-strength 5mm pinion shaft.

Trion V2 modified brushless motors

Japanese brand Trion have introduced their new V2 series 540-size sensored electric brushless motor. The power plant is of a new design that revolves around a high-airflow can with huge cooling openings around the front section while machined openings in the stator area further increase the airflow in this area. This leads to a much cooler motor towards the end of a run and thus reduced fading and more stable performance. An updated stator further adds to the overall performance with increased torque and reduced heat build-up. The motor is rounded out by a new rotor and available from now on in a 5.0T touring and a 6.5T off-road variant with additional 4.5T to 8.5T variants coming later in July.
