Motonica have introduced their new line of Electron cars, which are essentially brushless versions of their current car line up. Available for the P81, P8C and P8F, the kit can be bought separately to upgrade the car or as a complete kit including the rolling chassis. Each Electron kit allows the user to mount either 1 stick pack, or 2 stick packs in series or in parallel to suit the driver. We have been told that you can get 15 minutes of running with this setup and you will have more than enough power to play with.
Also making its debut on the Motonica stand is the company’s new P8C Extreme classic chassis, which is an upgrade from the original chassis and features a new orange anodised chassis plate which has the PHS feature that allows you to adjust the amount of chassis flex through the mounting of various posts between the radio plate and chassis. Other small improvements include the ability to adjust the rear ride height through spacers and the inclusion of the new ‘hi torque’ front suspension plate.
A final interesting thing on the Motonica stand was the concept cooling head mounted on the engine in the P81 Pro. This a prototype piece designed for Reedy to help increase cooling to the motor’s glowplug, which following initial tests does in fact help cool the glowplug more than a conventionally shaped head.
