Maclan Racing have announced the signing of European 1/8th off-road frontrunner, Juan Carlos Canas to their factory team. The SWorkz factory driver will be using Maclan Racing electronics for his 2020 E-Buggy racing program that started at last weekend’s Spanish 1/8th E-Buggy nationals. Juan Carlos set a first mark by taking the TQ and wins in A1 and A2 for the overall victory and the best possible way to start with his new sponsor.
Maclan Racing have announced the signing of former IFMAR 1/8th Nitro Buggy World Champion, Robert Batlle to their factory racing team. Robert will be using Maclan electronics for his 2020 race program that will include all major European electric 1/8th scale events.
Maclan Racing have introduced their new MMax 8 brushless speed controller for 1/8th scale applications. Developed from the ground up in cooperation with IFMAR World Champion, Jared Tebo, the ESC is of a heavy duty design, ensuring its hardware components meet the demands of high end competition racing while the software side of things enables the racer to take fully control of a multitude of parameters, ensuring the controller can be adjusted to all driving styles and track conditions. The MMax 8 utilises an all-aluminium case that ensures maximum heat dissipation and extreme durability. The 40mm HV turbo ESC fan provides that extra insurance to cool down the ESC in extreme ambient conditions. The super-switch-mode BEC is designed to handle true HV for all types of servos from 6V to 8.4V while the 32-bit micro processor allows for data processing at blistering speeds for improved throttle and brake control.
Coming from Maclan Racing is their new MR8.3 electric brushless motor for 1/8th scale applications. The MR8.3 is 4.5mm shorter and up to 25g lighter than its predecessor with an all-new stator and rotor design offering a more linear and smoother power band along with higher efficiency for an overall lower power consumption. The motor also features an additional sensor port for easier wiring and it comes in the two kV options of 1900kV and 2100kV. For the best overall performance Maclan Racing recommends to use the motor with the soon to be releasing MMax 8 speed controller, however they are usable with all other sensored 1/8th scale brushless speed controllers too.
Coming from Maclan Racing are their new 2020 Graphene V3 LiPo batteries. The series offers different dimension profiles for both on and off-road with new ULCG case design packs of 19.5mm height for competitive on-road racing and an all-new 20mm height shorty for off-road competitions. All packs offer improved cell formulas with better weight/capacity ratio over the previous versions and available will be standard packs of 8500mAh (25.1mm/318g), 6800mAh (22.5mm/270g) and 5500mAh (19.5mm/230g). As for the shorty packs, these come as 6100mAh (25.1mm/225g), 4500mAh (20mm/165g) and 4000mAh (18.5mm/155g) variants. All are built using high-performance LiHV cells for a lower internal resistance, further improved overall performance and even greater durability.
Maclan Racing have announced the signing of German electric on-road frontrunner, Yannic Prümper to their team.

I’m extremely excited and happy to announce that I will be joining the Maclan Team for 2019 and 2020. I would like to thank Willie Chung for this great opportunity and Brandon Dyche for the great support already. Electronics are very important; the feel has to be correct, as that’s what connects your throttle finger to the track. I was really surprised by the performance during testing, the knowledge of the electronics and the determination Maclan has to produce top level products. I know that will translate into extra confidence in my driving and great results together. I will be using Maclan Motors, ESC’s and Batteries in both my 1/10 vehicles and 1/8 EP vehicles. I can’t wait to get 2019 going, my first major race with Maclan electronics will be the 2019 Reedy Off-Road Race of Champions. See you guys at the track!
