More Drag Racing motors, this time from Fantom Racing with the release of their Icon Torque V2 Pro Drag motor. How this motor differs from the previously available Icon motors is that this motor features their patented design stator that provides maximum torque while producing tons of RPM and eliminates the need for stator screws. A new sensor board design is also fitted for improved deviation accuracy & reliability. This 13.5T motor comes in Standard, Team and Works editions.
Some new goodies from Fantom who have released their latest 6800mAh MaxV-Spec LiPo batteries. Featuring a proprietary Silicon Graphene technology, which stabilises the cells and increases their cycle life & efficiency, this performance pack is a 7.4V 2 cell 130C and uses 5mm bullet connectors, which are included. Additionally, they have announced a new sweet looking 4-cell 24 inch battery charging extension harness with XT Connector and balance taps.
Fantom Racing have announced the release of their new FR-10 Pro 2S all-black and FR-1S Pro 1S brushless speed controllers. Both are rated at 160A with the 2S variant being 2019 ROAR 13.5T 4WD, 17.5T 2WD and 17.5T Short Course national champion in the hands of Dreighton Stoub. The 2S variant features a new all-black case for a stealthy look while 11 AWG ultra-low resistance wires ensure minimal power loss in modified class. A 32-bit high-performance CPU, adjustable 6V/7.4V BEC system and on-board power button round out the package.
Fantom have introduced their new FR-8 Pro brushless speed controller and ICON Pro brushless motor for 1/8th scale applications. Starting with the speed controller, the FR-8 Pro features a high-performance 32-bit CPU and proprietary firmware, providing the driver with smooth throttle response, exceptional power delivery, and all the adjustable parameters that can be expected from a pro racing ESC. The 3S to 6S LiPo compatible controller is 220A rated, it features a 6V/7.4V, 8A BEC system, 10AWG wires and a 34mm fan unit with aluminium fan cover.
Fantom Racing have introduced their new 8000mAh 7.6V Pro HV Silicon Graphene hardcase battery pack. Built from high-quality 110C/160C cells the battery measures 139x47x25mm and it weighs in at 321g. It comes pre-wired with a genuine Deans-type connector and is ideal for demanding applications such as high-performance brushless ready-to-run vehicles.
Coming from Fantom Racing are two new super low profile Lithium battery packs. Available as 5400mAh Pro HV LiHV and 5200mAh MaxV-Spec LiPo variant, both packs sport a standard 2-cell footprint and a height of only 19.5mm for a lower centre of gravity and a lower weight. Proprietary Silicon Graphene chemistry stabilises the cells and increases cycle life and efficiency while offering the ultimate combination of voltage, high capacity, and low resistance. The Pro HV pack weighs in at only 234g while the 5200mAh MaxV-Spec packs weighs 240g. Both are housed in protective hardcases and they utilise 5mm bullet-type connectors.
Fantom Racing have introduced their new Octane Pro Drag Series LiPo battery packs. The batteries feature modified chemistry that produces the ultimate combination of power, capacity, and low resistance and they were developed for the extreme demands of pro-level drag racing, where horsepower and low internal resistance is critical. Produced with premium Japanese materials the packs come with 8 gauge premium high-amp wire, they include a detailed instruction sheet and come in five different models and in 1S, 2S or 3S configuration.
Coming soon from Fantom Racing are their new Icon Pro Modified and Pro Spec electric brushless motors. The heart of the motors are the patented design stator and patent pending tuning pins with the two features promising greatly improved performance in terms of torque and RPM. The stator provides maximum torque and RPM while the tuning pins eliminate the need for stator screws while allowing to fine-tune RPM vs. torque. The motor is available in the most coming modified and stock windings and it is widely factory-tuneable in terms of rotors, bearings and other options.
