Carisma have released first images and information on their all-new V70R sensored micro brushless speed controller and motor. Purpose-designed for 1/14th to 1/16th scale mini and micro buggies the speed controller is of very compact dimensions with the sensored design allowing for exceptional low-speed throttle smoothness and thus car control without sacrificing performance when it is needed. The software supports blinky and turbo timing options, meaning the speedo is usable in stock and open class racing and the throttle and brake settings can be fine-tuned to the driver’s liking. Depending on the gearing the controller can be used with up to 3S LiPo battery packs and it fully support Carima’s new Racing Mini sensored brushless motors that are available in a milder 4600kv variant and also as high-power 5350kv motor. The motors measure 24×43.6mm and they utilise a 3mm shaft. In addition a programming box is available separately for easy adjustment of the controller. The new motors already prove their performance by taking the top 3 spots at the recent MicroX race with the controller obtaining P2 and P3 overall in the hand of Craig Harris and Keith Robertson.
Hobbywing have introduced the new Justock 3650SD G2 brushless stock motor. Sporting a redesigned heavy duty multi-piece case for cool looks and improved heat dissipation, the fixed timing motor is of a sensored design and it comes with pre-soldered 3.5mm bullet-type connectors. Other features include a rebuildable design, double insulated windings and high-precision Japanese-made ball bearings. The 540-class motor is available in a range of stock-specific windings including 10.5T, 13.5T, 17.5T and 21.5T.
Trinity have introduced their new Monster Horsepower Spec brushless motor for 10.5T to 21.5T stock class racing. It features an aluminium based sensor board for true sensor alignment, 2mm copper solder tabs, a thermal stator coating for improved heat dissipation and a new rotor design that benefits both RPM and torque. A redesigned turbine-style vented nose pice and new high-temperature wire coating round out the features list. The motor is available in 10.5T, 13.5T, 17.5T and 21.5T specification with modified variants to follow soon.
Trinity have introduced their new Equalizer 17.5T spec racing brushless motor. Designed to provide a level-playing ground the motor features tamper-proof stickers that deter racers from opening the motor which should lead to less cheating. The motor will become available by mid-September in 17.5T specifications but 13.5T, 21.5T and 25.5T variants may follow in case of demand.
SkyRC have introduced their new Toro X8T V2 brushless motor for 1/8th scale E-truggies. The 6-pole 1950kv motor is of a 18-slot stator design for improved torque while high-purity copper windings and ultra-thin 0.2mm stator laminations make for high efficiency, resulting in reduced heat built-up and longer run times. The sensorless motor utilises a machined T6 billet aluminium can with heatsink ribbing and it measures 42.2x74mm including said heatsink.
SkyRC have introduced their new Toro X8 V2 electric brushless motor for 1/8th scale applications. The sensorless motor is housed in a CNC-machined T6 billet aluminium heatsink can and it is of a 6-pole, 18-slot stator design for a high-torque, high-power output. Utilising super high conductance silicon wires, a sintered neodymium magnet rotor and high purity copper windings the motor also offers high efficiency for low operation temperatures. The X8 V2 is available in a 2100kv and a 2400kv variant soon.
Coming from SkyRC is the new Toro X8 Pro brushless motor for 1/8th scale applications. Sporting a CNC-machined T6 billet aluminium heatsink can, the 4-pole motor comes with a 12-slot stator and a high-torque motor design for improved performance in demanding conditions. Ultra-thin 0.2mm stator laminations and high-purity copper windings make for maximum efficiency with the sintered Neodymium rotor further upping torque capabilities. High-RPM oversized bearings and heavy duty solder tabs add to the features list of the motor that, for now, is available as 2150kv variant only.
Scorpion keeps releasing more winding options of their newly introduced RR-3420 competition brushless motor. Offering the same features as the previously released variants the 21.5T motor comes with a 12.5mm high-torque rotor for high braking power and performance while keeping the operation temperatures low. The motor is built to meet ROAR specifications and it is available now.
