Coming from Castle Creations are two new Racing Editions controller and motor combos for 1/8th E-buggies. Both make use of the Mamba X sensored speed controller that features Castle Creations’s latest firmware for smooth yet powerful throttle and brake control, data logging capacities including motor and speedo temperature and it features a strong 5.25V-8.0V 8A BEC system. A waterproof aluminium housing makes for go-everywhere capabilities and it measures a compact 54.4×35.2×30.0mm while weighing in at 101g. Included in the set are either the ROAR Mod approved 1512-1800kv or ROAR Mod pending 1515-2200kv brushless 4-pole/12-slot motors.
Austrian Nosram distributors MW RC Cars have introduced the all new N22 540-size modified brushless motor. It makes use of a lightweight 7075-T6 aluminium can with maximised cooling cut-outs for improved airflow and thus low operation temperatures. A heatsink design and black surface coating further helps with efficient heat dissipation while an optimised sensor design and timing range, dual-axis balanced sintered rotor and 4x10x4mm ABEC5 bearings help to get the most out of the new design. A unique, waterproof PreciSensor assures precise operation with any speed controller and the motors are available in 3.5T to 10.5T variants with odd and even winding options.
Coming from Yeah Racing are the new Hackmotor Mobster 540-size electric brushless motors. Featuring thicker stator wires the “outlaw” motors will offer greatly improved performance and lower running temperatures compared to motors build after the rules of the major sanctioning bodies. The motors utilise premium-quality ball bearings, high-purity copper wires, high-power neodymium magnets and the aluminium endbell makes for improved heat dissipation. Available now are 4.5T and 7.5T modified as well as 10.5T, 13.5T, 17.5T and 21.5T stock variants.
Muchmore Racing are busy adding more variants of the new Fleta ZX V2 motor to their portfolio with the latest outcome being the 1S optimised 6.5T Type-R for 1/12th scale pan cars. Making use of the same teardown as the previous modified variants, the Type-R is specially tuned for 1-cell applications such as 1/12th scale modified classes thanks to a specific stator and rotor combination, resulting in smooth and controllable acceleration.
Muchmore are busy adding more variants of the all-new Fleta ZX V2 brushless motor to their portfolio. The latest outcome is the ER Fixtiming Spec motor that builds on the same teardown as the Type-ER but its fixed timing design makes it ideal for spec racing classes and as handout motor. It comes as 13.5T, 17.5T and 21.5T variant and will hit stores very soon.
The latest in the line of Muchmore’s all-new Fleta ZX V2 brushless motors is a drift specific 10.5T variant. It makes use of the same Flow-Max 2 motor can and high-power stator design as the recently introduced modified and stockvariants but it includes a special rotor whose fan not only further increases cooling but it also makes for a more realistic sound effect. The Drift motor is available in the 10.5T variant only and it will hit stores very soon.
Maclan Racing have announced the new MR8.2 1/8 brushless series of motors. The MR8.2’s new design is set to deliver balanced power and smoothness thanks to a combination of a 12-slot stator with a strong, staggered 4-pole, 8-magnet rotor that is constructed to be smooth and powerful while increasing durability. An all-new error-free sensor unit design with separate sensor magnet will minimise the signal noise the often can damage speed controllers. The series will include 1500kv, 1950kv, and 2150kv buggy style motors as well as a dedicated 2100kv truggy variant.
Italian company Reds Racing have introduced their new Gen2 1/8th electric brushless motors. Developed with the help of factory drivers such as Elliott Boots the power plants feature a new stator for increased heat dissipation, a redesigned rotor makes for improved throttle control and an all-new heatsink can increases heat dissipation. The features list is rounded out by dual sensor ports, pre-shaped heavy duty solder tabs and high-RPM ball bearings. The motor will become available in a range of winding options including 1900kv and 2100kv variants.
