Novak Ballistic 550 brushless motors

Novak’s Ballistic 550 Brushless motors claim to be the first 550-sized motors to break into short course competition and easily outperform traditional 540-sized motors. The Ballistic 550s are so powerful because of their extra long stator and rotor magnet. In fact, the stator and rotor magnet are twice the length of 540-sized motors, giving them twice the torque. Additionally, these larger-sized motors run cooler and more efficiently than their 540 counterparts. These high-powered machines are the motors of choice at small, indoor race tracks and easily install into the OFNA Hyper 10 SC, Jammin SCRT 10, Traxxas Slash 4X4 and many other 1/10-scale short course trucks.

TQ expects the street price to be anywhere between $255 and $289, a great price for a proven winner and will also offer pipes and glow plugs. They will also be eventually offering a factory tuned version along with a combo package. Starting with the buggy engine first, it will be followed up with a truggy engine. Finally, they will be launching a new website along with a new service center based out of North Carolina for all warranty and tech support.

Nejc Mihelic wins opening round of Slovenian Nats

Nejc Mihelic wins opening round of Slovenian Nats

Last weekend saw the opening round of the 2010 Slovenian on road National Championships take place at the Morac track in Austria where it was to be Motonica’s day. In the 1:8 class it was Nejc Mihelic who TQ’d the event with his Picco powered Motonica P81. Weather wasn’t too good, with some rain drops all over the weekend and Sunday saw a wet start but it eventually dried out after a few hours and the grip wasn’t too bad to start off with but gradually increased throughout the day. In the final Nejc Mihelic could easily convert with pole position into a 6 lap advantage by the end of the 30 minute race, with Austrian Michael Höller in 2nd and Sasa Matijek in 3rd, completing an all Motonica podium.

Thanks to Nejc Mihelic for the report.

Exotek XR3 Xray T3 LiPo chassis

Exotek XR3 Xray T3 LiPo chassis

Exotek Racing have introduced the Exotek XR3, Xray T3 conversion. This no holds barred multi-adjustment LiPo chassis features unique CNC manufactured stainless steel weights allowing your LiPo battery to be positioned to have equal left and right balance without the need to add lead weight and without raising the battery up higher. The XR3 chassis is designed and tested to equalize lateral flex resulting in much more predictable handling. Removing the 6 NiMh battery slots effectively stiffens the chassis so they have had to reduce the thickness to 2mm to put a little flex back into the chassis for improved traction. The chassis has also been narrowed to 91mm wide, for less chassis scrub through corners for better corner speed. Featuring a multitude of battery mounting options, it accepts 7.4 volt flat bottom LiPos such as Thunder Power 5000, Intellect IB, Orion Platinum Series or similar sized LiPo batteries.
