During this week’s EFRA 1/8th Gas Offroad European Championship Italian company Reds Racing have their forthcoming TX120 1/10th scale brushless speed controller on show. Known for their successful range of nitro engines Reds Racing recently also stepped into electric propulsion with the release of their 1/8th and 1/10th scale brushless motors. As for the speed controller, the TX120 was developed with a focus especially on 13.5T stock racing and a good brake feel, but the speedo will also work with modified motors down to 3.0T. Measuring 31.38x19mm and weighing in at 45g the 2S LiPo-compatible and 120A-rated ESC offers 6V/3A BEC output and it sports all-black wires for a pro-level look. Also available will be a dedicated programming box that allows to adjust the software parameters that, from what is understood, will include class-standard items such as timing and turbo functions beside others. More detailed information about both products will become available in time for the release.
