X Factory X-6 MIP C-CVD set

X Factory X-6 MIP C-CVD set

Many X-6 and 6 Squared owners have wanted a genuine MIP C-CVD kit with the special X Factory axles and it is here at last. These new C-CVDs are made for X-Factory by M.I.P. and contains two complete C-CVDs per package. These units have the drive pin captured by a screw-on plastic ring instead of being secured with a set screw and is far more reliable because there is no set screw to come loose, ending your race. They feature the longer axles used on the X-6 & 6Sq with the correct spacer that allows full droop on the car.

Speed Passion Cirtix Slotless sensored BL motors

Speed Passion Cirtix Slotless sensored BL motors

Speed Passion have introduced their ‘revolutionary’ Cirtix series of 1/10th and 1/8th scale slotless sensored brushless motors. Bridging the gap between the raw power and high efficiency of a slotless motor design, and the zero cogging smooth low end of a sensored system. The best of both worlds is now here for any mod 1/10th offroad or onroad vehicle, or 1/8th buggy and truggy. The Cirtix motor series features all the incredible power and efficiency of a slotless motor design, which means more power, longer run time and less motor heat in any mod 1/10th application, as well as stronger and smoother braking. These efficiency gains no longer have to come at the expense of common sensorless ESC cogging at startup and low speeds, as the Cirtix motors are the first slotless motors compatible with any sensored ESC. When combined with Speed Passion’s newly redesigned sensored 1/8th scale ESC, the Cirtix 1/8th scale motors provide all the brutal horsepower needed in any 1/8th scale application, as well as the accuracy and control of a cog-free sensored system. Both of these new motor lines are built to ROAR legal specs, and approvals are pending at this time.
