Castle Creations 1717 1650kV sensored motor

Coming from Castle Creations is their new 1717 series 1Y 1650kV sensored brushless motor that is ideal for heavier 1/8th vehicles and lighter 1/6th scale vehicles running up to 8S. Castle’s first new 17 series motor in over a decade now has an improved 4-pole 12-slot design that boasts exceptional efficiency and produces less heat. It is the perfect upgrade for any 1/6th scale vehicles weighing up to 20 lbs and running up to 8S LiPo; it is also a great upgrade for drivers looking for a reliable, high torque 8S motor for their 1/8th scale vehicles. Running modes include sensored and an ultra-efficient sensorless mode, high-strength, high-temperature grade neodymium sintered magnets combined with High-strength Kevlar wrap ensures the integrity of the rotor is not compromised during harsh running conditions, and oversized NMB bearings and a vibration dampening system ensure the longest bearing life possible. And proprietary winding techniques allow to produce a stator assembly that is the lowest possible resistance, resulting in a cooler running motor.
