Muchmore have introduced the Fleta ZX8 line of 1/8th competition brushless motors. The motor is based on a machined aluminium motor case with a large number of heatsink ribbings and Flow-Max venting hole technology for maximised cooling. The rotor runs in super low-friction ball bearings that offer both high efficiency and exceptional protection against dust and dirt and on top of this the ZX8 is of a dual sensor port design with adjustable timing. The motor is available in a 2050kv and a 1900kv variant and it includes a super flexible sensor wire.
Speedzone have introduced their new Elite Series brushless motor to compliment the Peerless Series. With a more linear feel, this latest offering allows a user to have every available motor option to suit track conditions and racing environments. A variety of turns are available and each motor is built to the highest quality and tolerance. Motors are bench tested to ensure sensor, stator and the ball bearings are all functioning to a strict quality control. Symmetrical vent openings in conjunction with the case and stator structure reduces motor temperature and maximises efficiency during an operating cycle. It also allows for easy stator measurement without disassembly. The Spec motors are produced with a short stator and HT rotor while the Modified motors come with a standard size stator.
Trinity have announced the addition of a dedicated VTA motor to their ReVtech 24K line up. The motor will be based off the new ROAR VTA specifications which are ROAR’s first attempt to recognise this popular spec racing class and it should become available in early March.
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.
Scorpion have introduced the RS-3420 electric brushless motor in 3.5T configuration. The super-fast modified motor is best used in 1/10th Touring Car and 1/12th scale applications and it is equipped with a 12.5mm rotor for maximum torque, braking power and performance. Optional 12.0mm high-speed and 12.3mm all-round rotors can be purchased to fine-tune the motor to different track conditions. As with all RS-3420 series motors the 3.5T variant features a screw-type rotor surfaces for improved cooling, a built-in cooling fan as well as a built-in temperature sensor.
Maclan Racing have announced the forthcoming release of their MR4 series motors. The sensored MR4 was specifically design for 4WD SCT racing and it will come with two KV options for different track conditions. Each features a custom stator for the respective KV option to deliver a much higher performance value. The 3500KV was designed for smaller indoor tracks that has more technical turns and excels when that quick burst of power is neeed. The high torque design of the 3500KV MR4 will provide the power to clear all types of jumps without hesitation. The 4150KV was designed for all around conditions. The higher KV and specially designed stator provides super smooth throttle feel and high top speeds.
Coming from Reds Racing are the VX 540 Certified electric brushless motors. Available as 10.5T, 13.5T, 17.5T and 21.5T stock racing variants the motors already are in the top 5 percent of every batch in terms of performance and further hand-building, shimming and testing makes for maximised power output. The motors meet all ROAR, EFRA and BRCA rules and they become available now.
UK Hobbywing distributors Schumacher have introduced the new Xerun V10 brushless G2 modified and stock motors. They are built around a black anodised all-aluminium can with large venting holes at the front and smaller openings in the rear. The motors feature standard-size high quality ball bearings, adjustable timing, and highly temperature-resistant copper windings. An integrated sensor monitors the internal temperature when coupled to respective Hobbywing speed controllers. The V10 are available as 3.5T to 8.5T modified as well as 10.5T to 21.5T stock racing variants.
