R1 Wurks Digital 3 1/8th Scale ESC

New from R1 Motor lab is the 1/8 Scale Digital-3 Wireless programmable brushless speed controller. Developed using the most advanced microchip processor and a robust proprietary software, the 1/8 Scale Digital-3 delivers the most technologically advanced features to date. Development of the 1/8 Digital-3 was focused on ultra smooth power delivery needed for competition level racing as well as supreme power efficiency. Compatible with use of up to a 6S LiPo Battery that allows for more power output. The controller offers the most advanced throttle and brake features to suit a wide range of driving styles. The unit features an A.C.L.C. (Advanced Component Level Cooling) system. This design allows individual encapsulated low resistance Mosfets (inner & outer components) to transfer heat directly to the upper heat sink. The system also comes equipped with an all new advanced commutation algorithm called ‘Cool Power’ to keep the motor cool and deliver powerful, yet ultra smooth acceleration.

R1 Wurks DC1 drag car

This is R1 Wurks’ flagship product, the DC1 drag car is a top of the line race car. This kit has been tested and proven on the track and its winning reputation speaks for itself. There are two kit options to choose from, either kit #1 which includes the US Made V1 shock kit which has more spring options, or kit #2 which includes R1’s V2 shock kit. Also you have a choice between our aluminium standup transmission or the B6.3 plastic laydown transmission. There is no price difference between these last two options. These kits do not include shock oil, diff oil, wheels, tires, electronics or a body.

R1 Wurks Volta line of motors

R1 Wurks have announced their all new Volta line of motors. The Volta motors lines up right next to their proven V21-S with 13.5, 17.5, 21.5 and 25.5 turn options. This motor produces a ton of punch, mid range and top end and its sleek can design is made for maximum cooling characteristics which helps with this motors efficiency during the longer runs. When testing these Volta Motors with team drivers, they were jumping triples that nobody else could consistently with minimal fade during the run. These motors come with the all new Volta long rotor for maximum torque/overall performance out of the box, no need for any upgrades.

R1 Wurks AXXISS DC1 B6 conversion

R1 Wurks have introduced their AXXISS DC1 B6/.1/.2/.3 drag conversion. This is a prototype of their upcoming chassis that has been developed and tested by team drivers over the past 6 months. With that in mind this kit will be utilising Industrial 3d printed parts with MJP, SLS processes. This kit will require a donor Team Associated B6 or any variety of the B6 Chassis and modifying of suspension components may be required on earlier B6 Chassis. The set will include the AXXISS DC1 carbon fibre chassis, battery mount with rubber bands & holder, servo mount, servo horn, anti-bump steer plate, front knuckles, carbon fibre front suspension riser plates, electronics mounting plates, motor mount/rear differential riser and finally the wheelie bar mount.

R1 Wurks Mega & Micro capacitor for Digital 3 ESC

R1 Wurks introduce their new line of Mega and Micro capacitor for the Digital 3 ESC. The Mega cap was designed to maximise the performance of the Digital 3 ESC with more than 30x the capacity of the built in capacitors while delivering ultra low ESR performance. This means that these capacitors respond to the ESC ripple current faster for better overall performance. Our 60 grams Mega cap also balances the side by side weight of the ESC, while sitting on the same footprint. This acts as a balancing ballast next to the Digital-3. This means you can also optimise the side by side weight balance, for harder launches. The 30 grams Mega capacitor fills in the gap for space constrained setups. The 30 grams Mega capacitor delivers maximum capacity on a smaller footprint, low ESR and unrivalled performance to weight ratio. The Micro capacitor is an excellent improvement over the stock Digital-3 capacitor, this is a smaller footprint, lower profile and delivering 3x the capacity of the built in Digital 3 capacitor. All the new capacitors will ship with a custom built cradle made of carbon fibre nylon filament and 3M very high bond tape.

R1 Wurks 10000mAh LiPo battery

R1 Wurks have released this 10,000mAh 130C 2S Graphene battery. Aimed at those needing the absolute highest power, this pack is focussed towards the drag racing segment where the high capacity equates to lower voltage drop under load. This in turn allows you to cool down and do multiple runs and expect close to consistent times.
